YEMEN CAN’T WAIT

Members of the Granny Peace Brigade participated in the weekly vigil for peace in Yemen, in Union Square on Saturday, November 24th. The weekly vigil was initiated by the Catholic Worker one and a half years ago. Several members of other peace organizations take part in this endeavor.

In spite of the fact that the U.S. Senate voted on Wednesday, the 21st of November, to advance a resolution demanding an end to U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s coalition war on Yemen, pressure is needed to bring a bill to fruition. The killing and starvation of the Yemeni people is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

Please contact your elected officials to demand that U.S. withdraw its support for this war. Join the weekly vigil and assist in getting the word out about this horrendous war and U.S. participation in it.
