According to a United Nations (UN) report on October 25th, half of Yemen’s population is facing “pre-famine conditions.” The UN also notes that more than 3 million Yemenis have been internally displaced. Many Yemenis are in dire need of healthcare, but are unfortunately unable to receive it, due to the sea, land, and air blockade placed on the country by Saudi Arabian warships since 2015. Tens of thousands of Yemeni civilians have been killed.

The Saudi coalition that is currently using airstrikes on Yemen is operated, financed, and led by the United Stated and its allies, including Canada, France, the UK, UAE, and Qatar. Without this material, financial, and logistical support from imperialist powers, Saudi Arabia would not be able to carry out its brutal war on Yemen.

As people in good conscience, who oppose imperialist war, we must make our voices heard and oppose Canada’s support of the war on Yemen! 

Please join us Saturday, November 3rd at 1pm in front of the Minister of Justice, MP Vancouver Granville Jody Wilson-Raybould's office to send a strong anti-imperialist/anti-war message to the Canadian government that we oppose its imperialist involvement in Yemen! Bring your anti-war signs, your friends, and your family—we will be meeting at 1245 W. Broadway.
