PEACE vigil: Stop Funding Saudi War Crimes

American weapons have been used to commit gross violations and helped to precipitate a humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen, says Amnesty International’s Lynn Maalouf. "Defense" companies are making a killing. Literally.
According to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, there have been over 13,000 civilian casualties in Yemen, with 21 million Yemenis in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. This impoverished nation has found itself home to the world’s largest cholera epidemic.

Countless Yemeni lives hang in the balance as President Donald Trump gears up to greatly deepen support for Riyadh’s campaign of terror, reports Foreign Policy magazine. “Yemen takes the prize for the largest food security crisis in the world.”

Now is the time to stop escalation of another war based on lies. On July 14, 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to prohibit participation in the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen (blocking U.S. refueling of warplanes), when it passed the Davidson and Nolan amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act. We call on the Senate to stand with the House, Sign the petition, then organize visible resistance to Empire that can’t be ignored.

THE PLANNING AND DOING OF AGGRESSIVE WAR IS THE SUPREME INTERNATIONAL CRIME ON PLANET EArth. That is U.S Judge who was chairman of the Trials Robert H. Jackson's summation at the end of the Trials.... the planning and doing of aggressive war, therefore, is not only a crime like all other war crimes; it is the supreme international crime as it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole. Jackson further says that aggressive war is the supreme international crime whether Germany does it or the U.S.A. does it. World law is being violated by the Empires here.

The U.S.A., Canada, and the UK in Empire Mode, are therefore part of the supreme international crime on planet Earth as they supply WMD---weapons of mass destruction to Saudi and in fact the UK, and USA are making aggressive war against the impoverished nation of Yemen, and causing disease, starvation and destruction of the organic webs-of-life such as schools, hospitals, food markets as well as housing and other means of production to take place.

You all have a world to win yet! End aggressive war and its manufactury to bring about a world of peace and ecolgical organic livability again. End fossil fuels aggressive wars!! Voila! Egalite' pour la femme dans la revolution. Workers of the world unite!!
