Call-in: Urge your Senator to speak out about Saudi Arabia
Following Saudi Arabia's execution of a prominent Shia dissident, its ending of the ceasefire in Yemen, and its attempts to sabotage the Syria peace talks, relations between the US and Saudi Arabia have reached an unprecedented state of crisis. But Washington still hasn't had a serious public discussion about how to say no to Saudi Arabia. In Germany and the UK, there is a debate in the government about how to say no to Saudi Arabia; but in the US, while there is a debate in the media, there is still no real debate in the government.
We can change this. Call your Senator now at (202) 224-3121. When you reach a staffer, you can say something like:
"I urge Senator ______ to make a public statement calling for Saudi Arabia to end its gross abuses of human rights and cooperate fully with international efforts to end the civil wars in Syria and Yemen, and calling on the Obama Administration to enact real pressure on Saudi Arabia to change its behavior."
When you've made your call, please report it below.
And if you haven't signed our petition urging President Obama to call out Saudi Arabia during the State of the Union address, you can do that here:
