Please read this urgent message from Congressman Ro Khanna.
The Pentagon continues to provide major help to the Saudi-led war on the Yemeni people. We have a chance to finally end U.S. participation in this war. Your Representative needs to hear from you.
Yemen continues to be the worst humanitarian disaster on earth, with tens of thousands dead and far worse looming if action is not taken.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that 24.4 million Yemenis, 80 percent of the country, are in need of humanitarian assistance, millions of children are suffering, and 16.6 million people lack water and sanitation services.
As in other recent U.S. wars in the Middle East, a result is increased terrorism. Along the way, the U.S. and its allies have in fact sometimes partnered with Al Qaeda. A primary U.S. ally in the region is, of course, Saudi Arabia, a government whose brutality and violence can match that of any entity on earth.
Both Houses of Congress have already voted in favor of ending U.S. participation in the war on Yemen.
The Senate has now done so twice.
We just need the House to do so again now, in order to send this bill to the White House with as much support as possible.
Click here to email Congress now.
Every moment counts.
Please forward this to everyone you can right away and ask them to do the same.
-- Congressman Ro Khanna
