Author Will Highlight U.S. Complicity in Saudi Atrocities in Yemen
LOS ANGELES – Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the human rights and peace organizations CODEPINK: Women for Peace and Global Exchange, will be making a book tour stop in Los Angeles this Sunday, September 18. She’ll meet with local activists and give a talk about her new book, Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection, recently released by O/R Books.
The tour and the book are meant to highlight U.S. complicity in Saudi atrocities, including the Saudi-led bombing campaign against Yemen, which has used U.S.-made fighter jets, bombs and other munitions to kill thousands in strikes on multiple civilian targets, including a school, a Doctors Without Borders hospital, and a potato chip factory.
Benjamin is a long-time peace activist and organizer. She recently received international press attention for disrupting Donald Trump during the Republican National Convention.
