Fighting escalates around Yemen's key port city

Оценок: 6 | Просмотров: 873
(4 Nov 2018) Fighting has escalated around Yemen's key port city of Hodeida, as airstrikes and naval artillery pound rebel positions around the Red Sea coastal city. Government backed-troops are launching a major ground assault in an attempt to wrest Hodeida from dug-in Houthi rebels. More than 150 combatants were killed over the weekend from both the rebel and government-backed sides, officials said Sunday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals. Fierce fighting also erupted in the provinces of Bayda, to the south, and Saada, a Houthi stronghold in the north, they added. Yemen has been at war since March 2015 when the rebels, known as Houthis, occupied northern regions and forced the government into exile. Since then, a Saudi-led, US-backed coalition supporting the largely exiled government has blockaded the rebel-held north and waged a devastating air campaign, causing thousands of deaths. The US has sold billions of dollars' worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and provides logistical and other support to the coalition, while the coalition, which backs the exiled government, accuses the Houthis of acting as Iran's proxy.

HOW WE CAN HELP YEMEN!!! We need to hit the streets and get the word out. The media is not reporting on Yemen like they should because of this the people of our nation are not outraged. They don’t know genocide is being conducted in our name, so that we can prosper off of arms deals. We need to take it upon ourselves to get the word out and spread awareness. We need to print flyers that have a short description of what is happening in Yemen, so they know that there is a genocide. It should include some links so they can look into it. It should tell them how to contact their representatives to express that they do not want to support this genocidal war against civilians. It should also tell them to spread the word. Do not ask for donations or shove info onto them. Just hand them the flyer and let them look into it. We can hand these out on busy street corners, to passerby’s, we can hand them out in front of stores, put them on car windshields. Next we need to stand on busy street corners with signs that give a quick description of what is happening, such as US backed Genocide in Yemen, that would be sufficient. Just to get people’s attention, and they might go home and look into it. We should organize events like this. We could also hold candle light vigils. Let’s not wait for someone else to organize this lets just go out and do it. We have lives to save, Let’s do it! Lets help save lives, and help our nation to be aware of what is happening, and have them help us stop it by using our democracy, and having the voice of the people heard.
