USA: Stop Supplying Arms to Countries Committing War Crimes in Yemen


Yemen is enduring one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises right now, and the United States of America is complicit.

Our government is supplying military exports to both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — two countries committing war crimes in Yemen —and this year the Trump Administration has plans to expand this arms trade.

Over the past three years dozens of Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes have disproportionately and indiscriminately killed civilians, including children, and targeted civilian infrastructure like hospitals, school buses and markets.

Countries like Germany, Norway and Belgium have already cut off arms supplies to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates because of their human rights violations in Yemen. It’s time for the USA to do the same. Supplying arms to countries that are killing civilians, including children, is simply indefensible.

It’s time for Americans everywhere to speak up and demand our government stop supporting war crimes in Yemen.
