It’s Time to Hold Saudi Arabia Accountable in Yemen

Last month we scored a rare victory when the US Senate introduced and debated a bill to halt an arms sale to Saudi Arabia. This was unprecedented, and even though we did not block the sale, our voices were heard and the Obama administration said continuing military assistance hinged on Saudi Arabia accepting a ceasefire in Yemen.

The ceasefire has come and gone and after just a few short days, the Saudis have returned to bombing civilians. This is unacceptable. It is time for us to make good on our threat to suspend lethal aid.

Please sign the petition to halt all military assistance to Saudi Arabia until a peace deal is brokered and fighting stops in Yemen.

US participation in the war in Yemen makes us complicit in war crimes and violates the war powers set out in the US Constitution. But most of all, it is simply wrong to target and kill innocent men, women, and children who have done nothing to harm us. We must stop this. Please sign so that President Obama knows we will not be silent while innocents are killed with US supplied weapons.

We know full well the risks created by our involvement in Yemen because we have seen the results all over the world where we have made these mistakes before. The terror facing Yemeni civilians makes us all less safe. This time we must put our foot down and stop the destruction before it spreads any further. Please stand with us and the people of Yemen and demand an end to military assistance before any more civilians are killed.
