Why people with a voice must demand that world leaders intervene in the Saudi-led coalition attack on the Yemeni people.

This is the basic history of territory, and important differences between Yemeni and Saudi way of life and beliefs.

This attack on Yemen, a country of peaceful and simple-living people, is rooted in the royal family’s personal vendetta which dates back to 1932.

That is the year world leaders agreed to allow al-Saud to claim the territory he had besieged using paid militia, going from village to village pillaging and killing; and even back then the Yemeni fought off al-Saud’s invasion of Arabia.

Yemen was recognized as an independent nation at the time al-Saudi was given territory in Arabia to call his personal realm.Yemen was recognized as a separate nation at the time al-Saud was allowed to claim territory in Arabia as his realm, and it is made clear in this map from 1932 that outlined al-Saud’s Kingdom borders.

You see, Abdulaziz al-Saud was never crowned by the people – he crowned himself – and the world leaders backed him as king.

And today, over 2.5 million innocent Yemeni are trapped between Western politics and Saudi weapon sales.

And the undeniable consequence is Saudi Arabia’s siege and systematic demolishing of Yemen.

map of middle east and africaThe self-proclaimed royal family has always inflicted inhumane suffering on their own citizens. Now they have laid siege to a bordering country and trapped its people; inflicting Yemenis with the slow, painful death by starvation; loss of limbs, livelihood and loved ones; fear from constant unlawful airstrikes that drop outlawed cluster-bombs on their homes and facilities; and then there are militant snipers indiscriminately killing civilian men, women, children, even babies – and the people have no safe place to run or hide – and the world leaders still back the king.

Below is a point by point reason why people in Western nations need to protect the Yemenis, and save their culture from complete destruction by the Saudis.

It is time to stop the invasion by Saudi Arabia and give Yemenis back the freedom to choose their own government.

Even more importantly the ability to protect their way of life from a neighbouring tyrannical kingdom that will subject the Yemenis to a fate worse than death.

Put yourself in their shoes… walk a day… and then write your government and the United Nations Security Council – demand the UNSC intervene in the attack on Yemen.

  • The May 18-21 festival appeared to be a Saudi charm offensive aimed at federal policy makers as the Trudeau government fields questions about its decision to grant export permits for the armoured vehicles to a country that U.S. watchdog Freedom House regularly ranks among “the worst of the worst” on human rights. The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14. That date was nearly two weeks after mass executions in Saudi Arabia drew public condemnation from the Trudeau government.
