Stop the War, Save the Kids | #YemenCantWait

BREAKING NEWS

56 Senators voted YES on S.J.Res. 54. 

On December 13, the Senate chose to move toward ending U.S. complicity in the Saudi-led attacks in Yemen by passing the Yemen War Powers Resolution.

In a major move that will hold historical significance in the anti-war and peace movements, a bipartisan group of senators took a step toward reclaiming their war-making abilities and putting a check on our unauthorized military endeavors for the first time.  

This is a victory for those who are working toward bettering U.S. global policies, for the people of Yemen who have been suffering from the ongoing conflict, and for the peace process in the Yemen conflict which is already seeing gains from U.S. pressure. 

This vote marks a starting point of ending our involvement in unauthorized wars and holding allies that commit systematic human rights abuses, like Saudi Arabia, accountable.  

Next, we look toward both chambers of Congress to unilaterally end U.S. participation in the war in Yemen in January so that the people of Yemen can work toward rebuilding and relief efforts.
