@NikkiHaley: Back @UN Envoy @OSESGY ‏Plan to Save Yemen from Famine

To be delivered to Nikki Haley, US Amb. to UN, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Back UN Yemen Envoy's plan to stop Saudi-UAE attacks on Yemen's Hodeida port, rebuild it & allow aid to avert famine.
There are currently 5,952 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed has announced a plan to remove the governorate of Hodeida from the Yemeni civil war. The plan includes a ceasefire for the port, including the halt of any attacks on the port by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates [UAE]. [1]

The UN-recognized Yemeni government and Egypt have reportedly announced their support for the plan, but the United States, a key party to the conflict because of its refueling of Saudi and UAE warplanes bombing Yemen [2], has not yet publicly stated its support. As Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy has said, "The Saudis simply could not operate this bombing campaign without us. Their planes can't fly without US refueling capacity." [3]

Urge Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN, to publicly state US support for the UN Envoy's plan to save Hodeida and Yemen from famine by signing our petition.
