(Please improvise and speak from the heart)
Hello. My name is _____ and I'm a constituent, from _____ (City, State). I'm calling in support of Congressman Meeks's resolutions, H.J. Res 15 and H.J. Res 16, to block new weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia, along with the UAE, is a leading driver of violence in Yemen and has helped create the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet.
The Saudi coalition’s airstrikes and blockade are responsible for the majority of civilian casualties. Hospitals, markets, and essential infrastructure have been destroyed, crippling Yemen’s economy.
Yemen needs humanitarian aid and a ceasefire, not more bombs. Again, I urge you, Representative ____, to cosponsor and vote in favor of H.J.Res.15 and H.J.Res.16 to stop hundreds of millions worth of new weapons to Saudi Arabia because Yemen can't wait.
I also ask you to publicly urge the Biden administration to immediately reverse Pompeo’s designation of the Houthis in Yemen as a foreign terrorist organization. Such an unwarranted designation will result in a virtual blockade of all food and medicine desperately needed in Yemen.
I look forward to hearing from you on this urgent request.
