March 25 marks the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the Saudi-led coalition’s bombing of Yemen. We cannot let there be a ninth!
Please join a coalition of U.S. and international groups including Peace Action, Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, Action Corps, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Stop the War UK, World Beyond War, Fellowship of Reconciliation, Roots Action, United for Peace & Justice, Code Pink, Michigan Peace Council, and more for an online rally to inspire and enhance education and activism to end the war in Yemen.
Your voice is needed: Yemen can’t wait!
The war in Yemen has created one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. More than 337,000 people have been killed, and over 16 million are on the brink of famine.
The UN-brokered truce in Yemen expired in early October 2022, and Saudi Arabia’s blockade is still pushing millions of Yemenis to the edge of starvation by limiting commercial imports, including fuel and medicine. Without another truce or negotiated solution to the conflict, nothing prevents the Saudis from restarting airstrikes in Yemen.
As we continue to push for a complete end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led war, the next weeks and months will be critical. Every day that the Saudi-led coalition refrains from resuming bombing, Yemeni lives are saved. But with a blockade in place severely limiting the ability of the Yemeni people to rebuild their lives and the country’s economy, we cannot let up.
