Saudis to use Janjaweed to hit Hodeida; Aid groups warn of "near certain famine"
Planes of the "Saudi-led coalition" have dropped leaflets on Hodeida warning of an imminent attack. IRIN reports that a Saudi attack on Hodeida will likely include Sudan's "Janjaweed" militia, with their "long history of abuse against civilians." Aid groups warn of "near certain famine" if Hodeida is attacked.
This atrocity can't happen without U.S. aid and support. Members of Congress could try to stop that aid and support, by forcing a debate and vote.
Call your Representative now at (202) 224-3121. When you reach a staffer or leave a message, you can say something like,
"I urge you to invoke the War Powers Resolution to force a debate and vote before the U.S. helps Saudi Arabia push Yemen into famine."
When you've made your call, please report it below.
And if you haven't signed our petition calling for debate and vote before Hodeida is attacked, please do that here.
