7 December 2022

Summary

military participation in the Saudi led coalition’s war on Yemen – led by Representatives DeFazio, Jayapal, Schiff, Mace, and Senator Sanders, and cosponsored by over 130 members of the House and Senators – to the floor of your respective chambers during the 117th Congress. [...] March 26th, 2022, marked the start of the eighth year of the Saudi-led war and blockade on Yemen, which has helped cause the deaths of nearly half a million people and pushed millions more to the edge of starvation. [...] military support, Saudi Arabia escalated its campaign of collective punishment on the people of Yemen in recent months, making the start of 2022 one of the deadliest time periods of the war. [...] After seven years of direct and indirect involvement in the Yemen war, the United States must cease supplying weapons, spare parts, maintenance services, and logistical support to Saudi Arabia to ensure that there is no return of hostilities in Yemen and the conditions remain for the parties to achieve a lasting peace agreement. [...] Our organizations support the Yemen War Powers Resolutions, and urge Members of Congress to cosponsor, insist on a vote on the floor before the end of the 117th Congress, and ultimately vote yes to adopt this bill in Congress and send it to President Biden’s desk.
