Join the North Country Peace Group on Monday, January 25, 2021, 12 noon - 1:30 p.m., on 25A and Bennetts Road in Setauket as we say NO MORE to the war in Yemen. This is a global day of action. Bring signs, face masks are required.
The conflict in Yemen has been raging on for more than half a decade since Saudi Arabia, along with the help of other Gulf powers and the US and UK, intervened in the political situation of the country. The US and UK have participated in the war by providing intelligence to help the Saudi-led coalition conduct bombing raids, enforce a blockade that is the primary cause of the shortage of food and medicine, and supplying crucial parts for war planes that are necessary to continue bombing raids, among other support. The U.S. has continued to do this despite clear evidence of mass civilian casualties and purposeful starvation of the Yemeni populace that many experts say amounts to genocide.
