End U.S. Military Support for the War in Yemen

By Hassan El-Tayyab, May 17, 2020

The Saudi-led coalition’s bombardment of Yemen is the leading cause of civilian casualties in the war, according to the United Nations, and a driver of the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.

Half of the country’s population is on the brink of starvation. The United States has a vast amount of leverage to stop the killing, starting by cutting off U.S. military support for this unconscionable war.

Both chambers of Congress already passed several bills to end military support and weapon sales for the war in Yemen, but President Trump vetoed them. Despite these setbacks, Congress still has the power to end illegal U.S. involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

Urge your members of Congress to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
