Biden: Hands off Yemen! Take the Houthis in Yemen OFF the Specially Designated Global Terrorist list!

On January 12 the US launched 100 missiles at Yemen in response to Yemen’s blockade of commercial shipping to Israel – an attempt to end the genocide in Gaza! 

The Houthis in Yemen were designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the Trump Administration to block aid from entering Yemen. Biden removed the Houthis from the terrorist list in 2021 – now the Biden Administration just added the Houthis to the Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) list! This will block aid agencies from distributing much needed aid to Houthi controlled areas, which is 70% of the Yemeni population – 22 MILLION PEOPLE! 

Sign our petition to the Biden administration to say: Hands OFF Yemen! Take the Houthis off the SDGT list! 

We, the undersigned, are asking that the Biden administration STOP bombing Yemen and take the Houthis in Yemen off the Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) list. Going back to this designation is reverting to a bad Trump-era policy. This decision will have disastrous outcomes in the region.

Both Yemen and the US are obligated by the UN’s Genocide Convention to prevent and punish genocide, which is the goal of Yemen's blockade of commercial shipping to Israel. Instead of the US using its power to stop the genocide in Gaza, it's punishing Yemen for fulfilling these obligations.

Biden removed the Houthis from the terrorist list in 2021 in an attempt to reverse Trump’s bad Yemen policy – now your Administration has added the Houthis back on the Specially Designated Global Terrorist list. This will block aid agencies from distributing much needed aid to Houthi controlled areas, which is 70% of the Yemeni population – 22 MILLION PEOPLE! This policy will only kill innocent Yemenis and is a huge escalation towards a regional conflict! 

The Biden administration's bombing of Yemen while doing nothing to reach a ceasefire in Gaza sets a dangerous precedent that the US supports genocide. The designation of the Houthis as a terrorist organization will only worsen the conditions in Yemen and puts up roadblocks to ending the war that has devastated the country. 

We, the undersigned, call on you to stop bombing Yemen, and to take the Houthis in Yemen off the SDGT list!
