CALL TOPIC
U.S. military support of Saudi’s air campaign in the Yemen war targets civilian areas and vital civilian infrastructure, in violation of international law. It also hasn’t been authorized by Congress. Next week, the Senate will vote on S.J.Res. 54, a bipartisan resolution introduced by Senators Sanders (I-VT) and Lee (R-UT) to end U.S. participation in the Yemen civil war. If passed by both chambers of Congress, the resolution would declare the U.S. participation in the Yemen war unauthorized, and would end American support for Saudi war crimes.
CALL SCRIPT
1) Let’s call Congressman Smith’s office in D.C. at 202-225-3765…
Caller: Hello, I am a constituent of Rep. Smith’s; may I speak with the staffer who handles military actions?
I’m calling with my support for H.Con. Res. 81, to end our unauthorized war in Yemen. Congress has never authorized this war, and evidence shows that the airstrikes the U.S. is supporting are causing a humanitarian crisis and may amount to war crimes. The chaos has allowed terror groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda affiliates to gain more power and land.
Please ask Rep. Smith to cosponsor and vote yes on this resolution when it comes to the floor for a vote. Congress must exercise its constitutional power and end this unauthorized war.
2) Let’s call our Senators (Booker D.C. 202-224-3224, Newark 973-639-8700; Menendez D.C. 202-224-4744, Newark 973-645-3030)…
