End U.S. Support for Deadly Yemen War
With the U.S. military already fueling Saudi jets in Yemen, the White House is considering an escalation, from further intelligence sharing to possible direct US military intervention in the Yemen war. Congress can stop the U.S. from fueling the bloodshed in Yemen.
The U.S. is fueling the conflict in Yemen.
There's an American imprint on every civilian life lost in Yemen. - Sen. Chris Murphy
The U.S. is ramping up its refueling for the Saudi jet bombers that have rained down bombs on Yemeni markets, schools, factories, residential neighborhoods, and a hospital and contributed to the deaths of over 10,000 civilians. The White House is considering an escalation in Yemen war, from further intelligence sharing to possible direct US military intervention in the war. The war has already ravaged Yemeni society, with 14.1 million Yemenis experiencing food insecurity and 3.1 million suffering displacement. Despite the clear connection between U.S. arms to Saudi Arabia and Yemeni civilian suffering, the U.S. continues to sell billions of dollars of munitions to Saudi Arabia.
But congressional dissent from U.S. support for the Saudi military is growing.
Thank Senators who Voted to Block Bombs to Saudi Arabia
You can continue the push to end U.S. complicity in the Saudi war in Yemen by responding to your senators' votesWrite to Congress
In September, 27 Senators voted against a $1.15 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia. A horrendous October attack on a funeral that killed and wounded hundreds as was declared by Human Rights Watch to comprise a "war crime." And yet, the Trump administration is considering adding fuel to the fire.
Congress can catalyze an end to the U.S. role in enabling violence against civilians.
Please support S.J. Resolution 40. This bill places important humanitarian conditions onto certain U.S. arms transfers to Saudi Arabia, assuring that Saudi Arabia will take all feasible precautions to reduce the risk of civilian harm.
