Will the Worst of Saudi Arabia and the Worst of Sudan Team Up against famished Yemen in coming week?


Just Foreign Policy

Dear Kevin,

Planes of the “Saudi-led coalition” have dropped leaflets on Hodeida warning of an imminent attack. [1] IRIN reports that a Saudi attack on Hodeida will likely include Sudan’s “Janjaweed” militia, with their “long history of abuse against civilians.” [2] Aid groups warn of “near certain famine” if Hodeida is attacked. [3]

This atrocity can’t happen without U.S. aid and support. Members of Congress could try to stop that aid and support, by forcing a debate and vote.

Call Rep. Billy Long now at (202) 225-6536. When you reach a staffer or leave a message, you can say something like:

“I urge you to invoke the War Powers Resolution to force a debate and vote before the U.S. helps Saudi Arabia push Yemen into famine.”

When you’ve made your call, please report it here.

And if you haven’t signed our petition calling for debate and vote before Hodeida is attacked, please do that here.

Thanks for all you do to help make U.S. foreign policy more just,

Robert Naiman, Avram Reisman, and Sarah Burns
