@nytimes, @washingtonpost, @NPR: Report That the House Voted Against the Saudi War in Yemen

To be delivered to NYT Editors, WaPo Reader Rep., and NPR

Petition Statement

Report that the House voted to prohibit U.S. participation in the Saudi war in Yemen.
There are currently 6,105 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

On July 14, 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to prohibit U.S. military participation in the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen, when it passed the Davidson and Nolan amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA]. [1]

So far the New York Times, the Washington Post, and NPR have failed to report this news. The Los Angeles Times reported in an editorial that "the House of Representatives passed several amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act that calls for greater congressional oversight on how U.S. weapons are being used in Yemen," but failed to note that the House passed two amendments that prohibit U.S. military participation in Saudi Arabia's Yemen war. [2] Current U.S. military participation includes refueling the Saudi and UAE warplanes that are bombing Yemen. [3]

Urge the NYT, WaPo, and NPR not to censor the news that the House has voted against U.S. participation in the Saudi war in Yemen by signing our petition.
