Call your Rep.: Sign Lieu-Yoho-Conyers-Mulvaney letter to stop Saudi arms deal

Secretary of State Kerry is going to Saudi Arabia this week, to talk about the war in Yemen. Before he goes, he needs to know there is significant Congressional concern about what Saudi Arabia is doing in Yemen with U.S. weapons. That's why we're trying to get as many signers as possible today on the Congressional letter to President Obama, urging him to delay the Saudi arms deal.

Your Rep voted on June 16 to ban the transfer of cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia. 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 sign the Lieu-Yoho-Conyers-Mulvaney letter to hold the Saudi arms deal until Congress can give it full consideration. Congress has never authorized U.S. participation in Saudi Arabia's Yemen war."

When you've made your call, please report it below.

And if you haven't yet signed our joint petition with Daily Kos and the Yemen Peace Project to hold up the arms sale, you can do that here.

I spoke to the staffer who answered the phone for Michelle Luhan Grisham.
I requested she sign the Lieu Yoho Conyers Mulvaney letter to hold off any decision on any pact with Saudi Arabia until it ceases war with Yemen using US arms. The response was "Sure, I'll pass that message along, Sir."

Polite Staff member was unfamiliar with the letter. But said he would pass the message on to Re. Lujan.

The aide, Dan, in Congressman Joe Kennedy's office listened thoughtfully. He'll be glad to pass the message along to the Congressman. He said he couldn't say yet whether Rep. Kennedy will sign.

I called Bill Foster's office; his aide sounded positive, friendly, said he would pass on message, but gave no indication of Foster's position
