Today marks one year since the horrifying murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi officials in the Kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.
Because today, Trump has done everything possible to ensure U.S.-Saudi relations continue as business as usual. The Pentagon is deploying another missile defense system and even more personnel to the Saudi Arabia amid threats of war with Iran. And the U.S. is STILL selling bombs and giving military information to fuel the brutal unending Saudi-led war in Yemen.
There will be no justice for Jamal, no justice for the people of Yemen until we force an end to ‘business as usual’ between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
Luckily, we have an opening right now. As you read this, the House and Senate Armed Services Committees (HASC & SASC) are finalizing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). That bill could ban bomb sales and end military support for the war in Yemen. But we have to make sure the leaders of HASC and SASC know we’re still demanding an end to the war in Yemen, we’re still horrified at the assassination of Jamal. They have to hear us loud.
Tell HASC and SASC: End U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen NOW!
