On March 25th, 2015: Saudi Arabia began launching airstrikes on the poorest country in the Arab world, #Yemen. Since 2015, over 60,000 Yemenis have been killed, over 85,000 Yemeni children have been starved to death. On March 25th, 2019, it will be FOUR YEARS of war. The war in Yemen has been called the "worlds worst humanitarian crisis in decades" and "the forgotten war". This event is to remember Yemen and to hear stories of oppression and resistance from our communities. Join us for a day of poetry and art, while we hear stories of peace and war-whether in Yemen, Oakland, Palestine, Sudan and beyond..our struggles are tied. We'd love to hear your story!
