Petition Background

There's a big Congressional fight coming on Trump's Saudi arms deal. This deal is controversial because Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are using U.S. weapons to kill civilians and destroy civilian infrastructure in Yemen, deliberately trying to create famine in Yemen [1]; and because Trump's Saudi arms deal is widely seen as a U.S. seal of approval for escalation of the catastrophic Saudi-UAE war and blockade. [2]

Senators Chris Murphy [D-CT] and Rand Paul [R-KY] [3] and Representatives Mark Pocan [D-WI] and Justin Amash [R-MI] [4] have introduced resolutions to block the sale. [S.J.Res.42 & H.J.Res.102]

Urge your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor and vote for the resolutions blocking Trump's Saudi arms deal by signing our petition.
