On the week of Thanksgiving, millions of Yemenis will be starving because of US policy in their country. There is a bill in Congress that could end this immediately, but Rep Adam Schiff has yet to get on board despite it being supported by nearly ever other ranking democrat in the House of Representatives. It's time to act!
We will be rallying at Rep Adam Schiff's office Nov 20th at 2pm to demand he cosponsor HConRes138, the war powers resolution to end US involvement in in the Saudi war on Yemen. The US has been complicit in war crimes in Yemen for years and it's time to cut support. Bring your signs and help us spread the word.
If you weren't aware, with US military support the Saudi-Led Coalition has blockaded Yemen’s ports and stopped the flow of food, medicine, fuel, and clean water into the country. What has resulted is the worst man made humanitarian disaster on the planet right now with over a million cases of cholera and 14 million people on the brink of famine. Congress has never authorized U.S. military involvement in Yemen and it’s long overdue for the Legislative branch to have a floor vote on this matter.
You don't need to wait till Nov 20th to act. Please ask your rep and senators to cosponsor HConRes 138 and SJRes 54 by calling 1-833-STOP-WAR today.
