Petition Background

Yemen now faces the worst cholera outbreak in the world, due to the U.S.-aided Saudi-UAE war and blockade that have pushed Yemen to the brink of famine. "There's a U.S. imprint on every civilian death inside Yemen that's caused by the Saudi bombing campaign," Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut said. "The Saudis simply could not operate this bombing campaign without us. Their planes can't fly without U.S. refueling capacity." [1]

Congress can address this crisis by supporting amendments on the National Defense Authorization Act to prohibit the U.S. refueling of Saudi warplanes bombing Yemen [2], to prohibit the transfer of cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia [3], and to block weapons transfers to Saudi Arabia until Saudi Arabia lifts its blockade that is pushing Yemen into famine. [4]

Urge your Representative and Senators to back these amendments to attack U.S. aid for the Saudi war in Yemen by signing our petition.
