People in the U.S. and around the world are demanding an end to the brutal, U.S.-supported war on Yemen. Since 2015, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have waged war against Yemen, killing and injuring thousands of Yemeni civilians.
After five years of war, roughly 14 million people are at risk of famine and over 24 million people rely on food assistance for survival. More than 2 million people have been infected with cholera, among other alarming epidemics. The Saudi-led coalition’s blockade has impeded the flow of food, fuel, and medicine, threatening the lives of millions.
President Joe Biden has promised to end U.S. involvement in the conflict but the two corporate parties' addiction to empire and profiteering means Greens and other allies of peace must leave him no alternative.
The U.S. has provided logistical and intelligence support for the Saudi/UAE air war and has provided billions of dollars’ worth of arms to Saudi Arabia — despite its record of bombing civilian targets in Yemen, including hospitals and schools. By aiding Saudi Arabia and continuing its own direct military actions, the United States is complicit in the senseless killing of innocent people.
