Week of Action on Yemen

by | Jun 21, 2022

Scott Horton and the Libertarian Party, among others, are whipping up support for a week of action to end US involvement in the Yemen War.

And you can help.

H.J. Res. 87 was introduced on May 31. The bill would “direct the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress.”

The Bill defines the term “hostilities” to include “sharing intelligence for the purposes of enabling offensive coalition strikes; and providing logistical support for offensive coalition strikes, including by providing maintenance or transferring spare parts to coalition members flying warplanes engaged in anti-Houthi bombings in Yemen.”

It would also prohibit “the assignment of United States Armed Forces, including any including any civilian or military personnel of the Department of Defense, to command, coordinate, participate in the movement of, or accompany the regular or irregular military forces of the Saudi-led coalition forces in hostilities against the Houthis in Yemen or in situations in which there exists an imminent threat that such coalition forces become engaged in such hostilities, unless and until the President has obtained specific statutory authorization, in accordance with section 8(a) of the War Powers Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1547(a)).”

It is incredibly important that every American take five minutes to pick up the phone to urge their representatives to support this Bill.

If you have ever–ever–professed contempt for the war in Yemen, you must call.
