U.S.-Backed Coalition Using Starvation as a Weapon in Yemen
Many people in the US are unaware of the crisis in Yemen which is reaching genocidal proportions. We'll speak with writer and activist Shireen Al-Adeimi about the US-backed attack on Yemen’s port city of Hudayda, and its deadly consequences for the people of Yemen, who are already suffering disease and starvation from years of US-Saudi attacks. For the last three years the U.S. and its allies have bombed, starved, and sickened millions of children, forcing tens of thousands of parents to watch them die before their eyes. Now these criminals are deliberately cutting off the meager food aid in Yemen that has been keeping millions of hungry, sick, and malnourished children—and millions of adults—alive.
Shireen Al-Adeimi is a Yemeni student who just completed her doctorate at Harvard University and has been writing and speaking about the situation in Yemen.
