Hunger Strikers at UN Headquarters Call for End to Yemen War


Hunger Strikers at UN Headquarters Call for End to Yemen War

Nika Knight, staff writer

Peace activists are holding a week-long vigil and hunger strike at United Nations headquarters in New York City to demand an end to the U.S.-backed, Saudi Arabia-led war in Yemen and humanitarian aid for the country's starving population.

The hunger strike and vigil, organized by Creative Voices for NonViolence, the New York Catholic Worker community, the Upstate Coalition to End the Wars and Ground the Drones, Friends of Franz and Ben, and CodePink, will also include a demonstration at the White House Thursday.


Trump doesn´t give a damn about the kids in Yemen or kids in any other country and neither do half the rest of the Yanks. As far as the UN they are too busy kissing Yankee asses to do anything. None of this will end until the people of the world fight back


Doesn't it overwhelmingly confirm the fakery of the United Nations when these nations continue
to ignore the terrorist behavior of the US, especially in regard to these illegal wars of aggression?
Doesn't that ring some kind of a bell in their minds for them -- something like "Nuremberg"?

We not only have a criminal US government, we have it dancing nude in the streets on the way
to the bank.

Are all of these nations looking forward to WWIII?

Even more unfortunately, the answer may be even sadder -- i.e., the US controls the UN which
may be why troops engaged in pedophilia seem also to be getting away with criminal acts.
