Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has led an airstrike campaign in Yemen that frequently targets residential neighborhoods and civil infrastructure, resulting in thousands of civilian deaths.
The U.S. State Department recently approved a sale of $1.29 billion worth of munitions to Saudi Arabia to restock its air force, despite clear evidence of human rights and laws-of-war violations by Saudi-led coalition forces.
By refusing to investigate the Saudi government’s violations of international humanitarian law and providing additional arms to Saudi Arabia, the United States would be complicit in these violations. But with your help, we can stop this weapons sale.
Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain, the Yemen Peace Project, and RootsAction.org encourage you to click here to send a message to your senators and representatives asking them to oppose the most recent U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia, and to call a public hearing to investigate Saudi war crimes in Yemen.
After taking action, please forward this message to your friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
