Why Yemen? What have Yemenis done to the USA?

While…

We have bombed them killing civilians and children. We helped Saudi Arabia kill over 10, 000 (still counting) with the sale of weapons and refueling of the bombers we sold them. And now FAMINE threatens this country, one of the poorest in the world! Millions!

The GPB  joined a week long action across from the UN from 10-16 April organized by the New York Catholic Worker Community with many other groups. Around 20 fasted in support of the Yemeni people calling for:

  1. Ending of all drone attacks and military special operations within Yemen;
  2. End to US weapon sales and military aid to Saudi Arabia;
  3. Compensation to those who suffered losses due to US air strikes.

And…
the UN to end a blockade and air strikes, a silencing of all weapons, and a negotiated settlement to the war in Yemen.
Fifty-five US Congress Members including NYC’s Nadler have signed a letter to POTUS expressing concern for our actions in Yemen. This is just a first step. We must ensure the blockade ends and that UN food aid reaches starving children.

What can we do when so few seem to care?
Let your Congress members know YOU care!
