Join us for a Webinar on the US-Saudi Arms Sale and the War in Yemen

 

Join Yemeni Journalist Nawal al-Maghafi, Human Rights Watch, Win Without War and Oxfam on Monday, September 12th at 4pm ET for a live discussion on the proposed $1.15bn Saudi Arms Sale, humanitarian crisis in Yemen and what we can do to encourage peace.

You can RSVP here.

If you haven’t heard about this proposed arms sale, you’re not alone. While it hasn’t drawn much attention, it comes amidst numerous allegations of apparent war crimes and gross violations of human rights, including the Saudi-led coalition bombing another school, and a fourth Doctors Without Borders hospital in Yemen where 17 months of conflict has resulted in the displacement of 3 million people and a quarter of the population is on the verge of famine.

While Saudi Arabia is dropping the bombs, the U.S. is often supplying them and providing other support for the war. As Senator Chris Murphy pointed out, “there’s an American imprint on every civilian life lost in Yemen.”

But thankfully there’s something we can do to help stop this deal from moving forward.Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Al Franken (D-MN) and Mike Lee (R-UT) have teamed up to introduce legislation to block this new $1.15 billion U.S. package of tanks, ammunition, and machine guns to Saudi Arabia.

Join us Monday September 12th at 4pm ET for a live discussion on the ongoing war in Yemen, proposed Saudi Arms Sale and what we can do to encourage a peaceful, diplomatic settlement to end the war.
