Support the bipartisan resolution to withdraw unauthorized US forces from Saudi-led civil war in Yemen

Saudi Arabia's war and blockade has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine and caused the worst cholera outbreak on record, with a million malnourished children at risk from cholera. Every 10 minutes a child in Yemen dies of preventable causes like malnutrition and diarrhea. When UNICEF's director was asked how to end Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe, he simply said: "Stop the war."

Your Representatives in Congress can provide crucial leadership to help end Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe. Tell them to vote yes on H. Con. Res. 81, the bipartisan resolution calling for an end to the unauthorized U.S. participation in this war. A vote on ending U.S. participation in Saudi Arabia's famine-producing war will go to the floor.

Cosponsors (23): Massie, Pocan, Jones, Conyers, Lieu, Capuano, Ellison, McGovern, Lee, Raskin, Jayapal, Gabbard, Bass, Pallone, DeFazio, Nolan, Lofgren, Cohen, Slaughter, Blumenauer, Norton, Dingell, Walz

    My representatives from Utah are not listed in the submission to:
    Curious why not…
    and what would be a typical approach to investigating their position on the matter to coincide with CodePink’s work?

    Senate District 5: Karen Mayne.
    House District 38 Eric Hutchings.
    Thanks

    We must all be aware of the myriad ways that we support the military industrial complex and learn to divest of that support beginning with the bodies of our youth in military service to this violent monstrosity we call our foreign policy, none of which benefits democracy and a sustainable planet. It sacrifices all our futures for the short term gains of military contractors and the long term imperialism of the US and its colonizing projects. http://nnomy.org

    Poor little Yemen! They’re being destroyed by Saudi Arabia, using weapons purchased in the United State. Our Prez has a special love for the Saudis and their despotic rulers. It sickens me when I see DJT holding hands with those awful people. And joining them in their traditional dancing and other rituals. He is such a hypocrite….saying terrible things about Colin who quietly took a knee in protest of the discrepancy in justice between blacks and whites. And indeed there is!! The flag is only a symbol of the values to which we aspire, but we still have a long way to go!

    Complicity in this kind of horrendous, brutal, barbaric action indelibly demonstrates to any individual with any real integrity, and the world at large, that
    America has lost its moral compass and its vaunted claim to be a “leader” in world affairs. This is criminal.
