Yemen Hunger Strike Day of Action in NYC

Event Description

Join CODEPINK Thursday, April 13 for an action in NYC and/or participate in the hunger strike in solidarity for the people of Yemen.

Join CODEPINK on April 13 at the UN Headquarters to support the one week solidarity hunger strike organized by Creative Voices for NonViolence, New York Catholic Worker community, the Upstate Coalition to End the Wars and Ground the Drones, Friends of Franz and Ben, and CODEPINK. The hunger strike is April 10-16 and CODEPINK is putting out the call for its members to show up in numbers on the 13th (and as many other days as possible) to the Isaiah wall between the hours of 10am-2pm.

As we fast from all solid foods, we urge others to join us in calling for a humane response to the famine facing Yemeni civilians whose country has been ravaged by civil war and regularly targeted by Saudi and U.S. airstrikes. Let us know why you are fasting (find text box below).

If you can’t make it to the streets in NYC, LA, or DC, you can post your message of support for Yemenis using the hashtags #RememberYemen #YemenIsStarving (don't forget to tag us!), or plan an action in your local community. Let us know if you want to organize any actions locally on April 9th to16th so we can support you. If you are fasting- please consider donating your lunch money to feed starving people in Yemen

    I’m fasting because the America I believe in does not support military solutions to political problems, in which these solutions hurt and kill innocent civilians, including women and children.

    I’m fasting because I reject perpetual war. I reject imperialism. I reject racism. I reject violence. I’m vegan and I reject using sentient nonhuman animals also as resources. We will never ever have peace while we exploit and kill the vulnerable. There’s an ethnic cleansing going on in Yemen and there’s an ongoing drive by US empire and its ally Saudi Arabia to take over these extremely poor country. We must reject Empire and its aims. We must reject the normalisation of war.
