On January 25th, just days after the U.S. presidential inauguration, we are demanding that President Biden commit to the following during his first 100 days:
– Restore all humanitarian and food aid to Yemen, including USAID that was cut by President Trump at the beginning of the pandemic
– Stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
– Stop all US involvement in the war in Yemen including intelligence and logistics support.
– Pressure Saudi Arabia to stop the blockade that is starving Yemen.
– lift the designation of the Houthis as a terrorist organization

As part of a global campaign to end the barbaric Saudi/U.S. War on Yemen, Chicago activists rallied to demand the new administration to stop enabling with the war on Yemen. Famine, cholera and Covid-19 have been weaponized by the U.S., Britian and Saudi Arabia in addition to the physical destruction brought to bare on the Yemeni people who will not submit to colonial rule. The U.S. could end the Saudi navel embargo that has cut off food and essential supplies tonight if it saw it's cost greater than the benefit. Participants intend to raise the cost for politicians who have supported the war and for criminal organizations like the Boeing Company who profit from providing the means to deliver death and destruction.

A new documentary "Hunger Ward" looks at what it means to starve children as a tool of United States foreign policy.

Since 2015, the Saudi-led bombing and blockade of Yemen has killed hundreds of thousands of people and devastated the country. Yemen has one of the very worst COVID death rates in the world: It kills 1 in 4 people who test positive. The pandemic, along with withdrawal of aid, is pushing more people into acute hunger. Half the country’s health care facilities have been destroyed; hundreds of doctors are dead or have fled the country; public sector salaries of nurses and other medical workers have gone unpaid; and sanitation and clean water are in short supply. And yet Saudi Arabia is escalating its war and tightening its blockade.
The war is only possible because Western countries — and the United States and Britain in particular — continue to arm Saudi Arabia and provide military, political and logistical support for the war.
The disaster in Yemen is human-made. It is caused by the war and blockade. It can be ended.
Over 115 organizations from the US, UK, Yemen, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, Cyprus, France, Germany, India, Italy, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and across the world, are coming together to call for an end to the war in Yemen and solidarity with the people of Yemen.
