Call Sen. Chuck Grassley: Stop U.S. support for Saudi-led war in Yemen

Dear 5849376,

No war in Yemen

On Aug. 9, the Saudi-led coalition responsible for the brutal war in Yemen dropped a U.S-made bomb on a school bus and killed 44 children.1

This tragedy shattered the media silence about the United States' role in funding this devastating war. Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy just introduced an amendment that would end that financial support and help force the war to an end.

The Senate could vote any time this week, and Sen. Grassley, your senator, could be the deciding vote.

For years, the United States has been quietly supporting Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen. The U.S. government gives Saudi Arabia bombs and planes. U.S. troops even deliver fuel to Saudi jets in midair while they conduct bombings.2 The U.S. helped cause what the U.N. calls the world's gravest humanitarian crisis and helped drive more than 8 million Yemenis to the brink of famine, and cause the worst cholera epidemic in history.3,4

Murphy's amendment to the massive, must-pass 2019 defense appropriations bill would shut down U.S. funding for this brutal war unless the secretary of defense certifies the Saudi-led coalition is not violating international law.

A coalition that is blowing up school buses, weddings and hospitals is definitely violating international law. Sen. Murphy's amendment would effectively stop our tax dollars from flowing into the war in Yemen.

Mitch McConnell is trying every trick in the book to block Sen. Murphy's amendment from even getting to a vote. If key senators, including Sen. Grassley, hear from their constituents demanding their support for Sen. Murphy's amendment, we can make it clear that the time for ignoring our role in Yemen's war is over.
