Tell Your Senator to BLOCK the Weapons Sale to Saudi Arabia!

A bipartisan group of Senators, led by Chris Murphy and Rand Paul, have introduced S.J. Res 39, a measure that would block the recently approved sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi Arabian government continues its relentless airstrikes against Yemeni civilians, hitting schools, hospitals, markets, neighborhoods and factories. A recent report estimates that as many as 10,000 Yemeni civilians have been killed or injured. The United States cannot continue to support and enable this catastrophic destruction in Yemen.

The introduction of this bipartisan resolution in the Senate means that there is a new mood in Congress. After decades of enormous weapons sales to the Saudis, momentum is now building behind the movement to cut off this flow of arms. In just the last few weeks, major media outlets – such as the New York Times and the Guardian – have condemned the sale and said more weapons would enable further war crimes in Yemen.

    I am ashamed of my government. It is both arrogant and violent in its relations to other nations.

    I am reminded of those athletes who don’t stand and show false respect for a Flag that
    represents our ignorant and rapacious behavior. I am ashamed of U.S. aggression, contempt , greed and hostility toward the rest of the world’s people. That film should be shown in every school so that kids can come home and ask Mom & Dad why??
