US Senate: End the Yemen catastrophe

type:Petition
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

Yemen is a catastrophe — millions are on the brink of starvation, cities lie in ruins, and the largest cholera outbreak ever recorded grips the country.

For three years, Saudi Arabia has led a vicious bombing campaign, while at the same time blocking humanitarian aid from reaching desperate civilians. 

They aren’t doing it alone — the US is actively participating, sending them weapons and sharing targeting advice, even refueling Saudi bombers during airstrikes.

Now US senators from both parties, horrified by the slaughter, have introduced a bill to stop US participation in this tragedy. If the US steps away, it could finally stop the war. The vote will be close but they believe a massive show of public support could make the difference to fence-sitters. 

Add your name now to the petition for peace.
