A crucial update on Congressional efforts to stop the devastating war and blockade in Yemen.
Our guest is Kate Gould, Legislative Director of Middle East Policy for the Friends Committee on National Legislation.
Advocates for Middle East peace, along with key members of the U.S. Congress, have been working steadily to block weapons sales to Saudi Arabia; to invoke the War Powers Resolution of 1973 to end military support of the war in Yemen; and to reassert the power of Congress to legislate on these matters. Their efforts are finally beginning to pay off in the US Congress, but it will take unrelenting pressure from constituents if millions of Yemenis are to be set free from starvation, misery, and death.
