We will not normalize violence and human rights violations!
The Saudi Prince visited LA this week, and we were on the streets. Check us out in Variety. We were demanding action because #YemenCantWait. MbS’ U.S. visit included a visit with Trump that resulted in a press conference touting the President’s plan to sell more weapons to Saudi Arabia. MbS continues to stockpile weapons to create the worst humanitarian crisis on earth. MbS is in our backyard, and we need to say no to war and weapons. Sign our petition here.
