International day of action for Yemen to take place on January 25

Several anti-war and humanitarian organisations from across the world have announced coming together to call for an international day of action for Yemen on January 25th 2021.

“We are asking organisations to call protests in towns and cities around the world,” their statement said.

“This is a situation in which action can make a difference.

The Saudis are making no headway in the war. Their war coalition cracked in 2019 when the UAE pulled out, and they face serious economic problems at home. International opinion against the war is growing and leading politicians in the West, including President-elect Joe Biden, have been forced to speak out against it.

We call on people around the world to protest the war on January 25, 2021, just days after Biden’s inauguration and the day before Saudi Arabia’s ‘Davos in the Desert’ Future Investment Initiative,” the statement continued.

So far, over 100 organisations worldwide have committed to the campaign.
