End the Blockade on Yemen
The Yemeni Liberation Movement was on a hunger strike from March 29, 2021 to April 22, 2021. We demand that Biden speak out publicly against the blockade on Yemen and end all U.S. Support for the Saudi-led blockade that has been starving and harming millions of people.
Please join us in these demands!
Why is this important?
The US-backed Saudi-led coalition has been killing Yemenis for since its “intervention” 6 years ago. Recently, and out of desperation, the US-backed coalition escalated its tactics, implementing blockade on fuel entering the country. This effectively dismantles the supply chain in Yemen, leaving millions without food and medicine. It leaves hospitals and homes without power as fuel is required to power generators.
This blockade is starving millions of Yemenis and the UN estimates 400,000 Yemeni children could die from starvation if the blockade is not lifted. Now a child dies every 75 seconds.
Yemenis have been deprived of their basic human rights of water, food, electricity, and life at the hands of the US-funded onslaught. This is a preventable, man-made humanitarian crisis. We will not stand by the deaths of our families and people.
President Biden and the United States must publicly condemn the blockade on Yemen & end all US support for the Saudi blockade.
