UK and US: Stop aiding the Saudi-led Coalition in carrying out a genocide in Yemen!

The US-Saudi airstrikes must stop NOW! The transport borders must open IMMEDIATELY! Stop the media lies about a civil war that never existed!

There are no such things as Iran-backed Shia rebels in Yemen! The Houthis are Zaydis and are a branch of Sunni-Islam! EVERY SINGLE YEMENI HOUSEHOLD own at least one weapon/rifle. EVERY Yemeni is armed. So saying the Houthis are a group of militias is ironic. The ones called Houthis don't even have the name Houthi. They belong to other families. The ultimate ignorance of people online, specially from the West, have no clue what they are reading about.. They are being fed lies and stupidity from US-controlled media. 90% of the victims in this aggression were plain civilians sitting or sleeping in their homes when the airstrikes hit them.

The reason many ignored this is because they general news readers presume it's a civil law, which it never was! Thousands of troops from over 15 countries, including Black Water and, landed in Southern Yemen with their tanks and planes to fight...the 20k Houthi rebels? This doesn't make any sense. If that was the case, how come EVERY FRIDAY over a million people march in Sana'a, the capital, to condemn the US-Saudi aggression? 

This US-UK-Saudi coalition thinks bombing the Yemeni people will make them kneel down before oppressors, but this is easier said than done. No war in history have succeeded in doing that. We are in the 3rd year of this barbaric aggression, but no goals were achieved by the international coalition.

November 5th numbers: 908,400 suspected cholera cases and 2,192 associated deaths (World Health Organisation). Roughly, the number is estimated to 1 million cases of cholera at the end of this year. In November, a serious Diphtheria outbreak were reported in Yemen and is multiplying every week, adding to the seriousness of the siege on Yemen.

There is also currently a severe clean water deficiency in Yemen, thus making Cholera more at home in those unclean waters, therefore resulting in more cases of illness for every new day that passes.

Sana’a-based Taha Yaseen, from the Mwatana Organisation for Human Rights, said obstacles that stand in the way of controlling and containing cholera today in Yemen, include, but are not limited to, the ongoing war.

“During [the war] almost all health facilities and healthcare services reached a point of thorough collapse and thus are unable to respond to the increasing need to address fatal diseases and civilian victims. Many hospitals [have] shut down and many others were hit either by air or ground strikes, occupied by militias or used as military barracks,” he said.

When children stand to either die of starvation or a cholera outbreak, political discourse somewhat lose their appeal. Why argue a future that is being robbed away from Yemen’s children’s chest?

As world nations watch on idle, stuck in those hateful binary narratives their thirst for geopolitical control commanded they abide by, it is a people, and a civilisation stretching back centuries we are forfeiting … Yemen is dying under layers of million abominations and all we have offered are miserable whispers of condemnation.
