SF August 16: End the Genocide in Yemen

Event Description

Join CODEPINK and the Yemeni Alliance Council to end the genocide in Yemen. On August 8th, 2018: Saudi Arabia hit a school bus, killing dozens of people, many of them school children in Saada, Yemen. This act was a violation of international humanitarian law-a war crime.
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. We have also until recently been providing mid-air refueling of coalition warplanes that have been bombing Yemen. Furthermore, the U.S. has been the leading arms supplier to Saudi Arabia. Trump on arm sales to the Kingdom: "calling the Saudis important regional partners and praising weapons sales as an important source of US jobs". Our bombs are killing Yemenis, who we are also banning. Since 2015: over 90,000 Yemenis have been killed, some over 85,000 Yemeni children have starved to death.
