We will be rallying in Federal Plaza Nov 30th at 11am to end US involvement in in the Saudi war on Yemen. At this event, we will be laying out 44 backpacks to symbolize the lives of the 44 Yemeni children who lost their lives because a Lockheed Martin missile launched by a Saudi warplane on August 7th 2018.

The US has been complicit in war crimes in Yemen for years and it’s time to cut support. There will be several guest speakers including Yemen-born activist and scholar Shireen Al-Adeimi.

We hope this rally helps people learn about the conflict and gets them to pressure congress to stop the war.

The House and Senate are voting on two bills in the coming weeks. If passed, Senate Joint Resolution 54 and House Resolution138 would end US military involvement in Saudi Arabia’s War on Yemen. Please ask your representative and both your senators to co-sponsor them by calling 1-833-STOP-WAR.

Hope you can make it 11/30!
