With the stroke of a pen, Trump last week cruelly condemned hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of innocent women, men, and children to starvation — but Kiwis can help stop it — says Human Rights group Avaaz.
Avaaz says the UN immediately raised the alarm that Trump’s decision to designate Northern Yemen’s rebel government as a terrorist organization would lead to a famine not seen in 40 years.
12 million children among the population at risk
“It will make it virtually impossible to deliver life-saving food and medicine to a country where almost 80 per cent of the population — including 12 million children — are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance,” says Avaaz.
“Hope for Yemeni children now rests with the new US President Joe Biden.”
Avaaz points out that President Biden promised voters that he would end US support for Yemen’s war — and insiders say that a massive rallying cry from all over the world could help push his administration to quickly reverse Trump’s deadly final act, and save millions from starvation.
Avaaz says: “Join now. Share with everyone. Together we can deliver 1 million voices directly to key figures in Biden’s team, and through high profile media ads as soon as they take office.”
