The United States is actively helping Saudi Arabia wage a war on Yemen and its civilians. According to the United Nations, the war has left at least 10,000 people dead and millions more displaced. Additionally, millions of children are at risk of starvation as the Saudi-imposed blockade has rendered 20 out of 22 governorates on the brink of famine.
In addition to the unprecedented humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the United States' support for the Saudi-led Coalition is jeopardizing our national security, as terrorist groups continue to expand in Yemen, unchallenged, under the cover of the very airstrikes that are ignoring them in Yemen.
We are appealing to President Trump, the United States' Senate, and the United States' House of Representatives to:
- Immediately end the United States’ support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen (intelligence-sharing, supply of weapons, and midair-refueling during airstrikes)
- Call for an end to the Saudi-led Coalition's bombing campaign
- Call for an end to the Saudi-imposed blockade on Yemen
Thank you for signing to call for an end to the United States' support for the Saudi-led Coalition. Please share this petition widely.
