Protesters Demand End to U.S. Involvement in Yemeni War
During Global Month of Action For Yemen, SF Protesters Rally Outside Pelosi's Office
While Congress is deciding what amendments will stay in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes Pentagon spending, protesters outside Nancy Pelosi's office in San Francisco demanded on August 16 that the House Speaker do everything in her power to end U.S. participation in the brutal Yemen war. The U.S. has given a Saudi-led coalition a range of military aid to attack Yemen, including refueling for Saudi planes that bomb civilians, satellite information for bomb targeting and U.S. military forces who work with the Saudis.

The San Francisco demonstration was part of a U.S. wide Global Month of Action For Yemen, commemorating a year since the bombing of a school bus killing 40 Yemeni school children. Raising large banners and projecting their voices through megaphones, rally speakers said they want the House-Senate conference on the NDAA to include the Smith-Khanna amendment to end all U.S. participation in the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen and the Malinowski amendment to stop bomb sales to Saudi Arabia. The NDAA is expected to be finalized by mid-September.

The conflict in Yemen began in 2014. The fighting in the Arab world’s poorest country has killed thousands of civilians and created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, leaving millions suffering from food and medical supply shortages.
