Yemen Hunger Strike Day of Action in NYC

Event Description

Join CODEPINK Thursday, April 13 in NYC or in  solidarity locally for the people of Yemen.

On April 10, 2017, members of the New York Catholic Worker community, CODEPINK, the Upstate Coalition to End the Wars and Ground the Drones, Friends of Franz and Ben, and Voices for Creative Nonviolence will begin a week-long fast in New York City and around the country. In vigil across from the United Nations at the Isaiah Wall from 10am to 2pm everyday from Monday, April 10th to Sunday, April 16th. As we fast from all solid foods, we urge others to join us in calling for a humane response to the famine facing Yemeni civilians whose country has been ravaged by civil war and regularly targeted by Saudi and U.S. airstrikes.

If you can’t make it to NYC, you can post your message of support for Yemenis using the hashtags #RememberYemen #YemenIsStarving (don't forget to tag us!), or plan an action in your local community. Please let us know if you want to organize any actions locally on April 9th to16th so we can support you
