Focus on Yemen- Let’s End this War in 2021

Saturday, February 13, Noon to 1 PM

Martin Luther King Drive and North Avenue, Milwaukee

“Yemen is the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis”

 Congress has not authorized this war, what are we doing supporting the Saudi-led coalition? Congress must take its power back, and stop giving our Administration a blank check to wage war in our name.

As a result, nearly 18 million Yemenis – or 2 out of every 3 people – don't know where their next meal is coming from.

Over 85,000 children might have died of hunger since the bombings began in 2015.

“For every child killed by bombs and bullets, dozens are starving to death — and it’s entirely preventable.”

 The overall economic collapse, exacerbated by limited function of airports and seaports, has pushed the prices of basic goods out of reach for most, worsening hunger and inequality.

More than 100,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in Yemen in the last few years, according to a new assessment, a figure six times higher than previous estimates.

There have been more than 1.1 million cases of cholera

22.2 million people in Yemen need some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance.

Estimated over 18 million Yemenis are food insecure-8.4 million people are severely food insecure and at risk of starvation.
