LA August 9: Global Day of Action for Yemen

Join CODEPINK at the General Consulate of Saudi Arabia for the first vigil of the Saudi Arabia bomb dropped on a Yemen school bus.

The war in Yemen has been called the "worlds worst humanitarian crisis in decades" and "the forgotten war". Since 2015, U.S. forces­ have provided logistical and intelligence support to the Saudi-led coalition.

The August 9 school bus attack killed 40 boys aged from six to 11 who were being taken on a school trip. Eleven adults also died. Local authorities said that 79 people were wounded, 56 of them children. The weapon used was a laser-guided bomb made by Lockheed Martin, one of many thousands sold to Saudi Arabia as part of billions of dollars of weapons exports.
