Reminder: Jan 25 “No War on Yemen” event

Coming January 25th:

Join this first-ever global webinar to stop the Saudi-US-UK war on Yemen, featuring Jeremy Corbyn, Danny Glover, Mark Rylance, and more!

No war on Yemen – Jan 25 – Join the Global Webinar!

 

The war on Yemen is only possible because Western countries — Canada, the United States and the UK in particular — continue to arm Saudi Arabia and provide military, political, and logistical support for the war.
The disaster in Yemen is man-made. It is caused by the war and blockade. It can be ended.
Over 200 organizations from the US, UK, Yemen, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, 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.

We demand that right now our governments:

° Stop foreign aggression on Yemen
° Stop weapons and war support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
° Lift the blockade on Yemen and open all land and seaports
° Restore and expand humanitarian aid for the people of Yemen

We call on people around the world to protest the war on January 25, 2021, just days after the U.S. presidential inauguration and the day before Saudi Arabia’s “Davos in the Desert” Future Investment Initiative. We ask individuals and organizations everywhere to call for protests—with masks and other safety precautions – in their towns and cities on that day and make clear that the World Says No to War on Yemen.
