Stop the war in Yemen

DiEM25 recognises the immense humanitarian crisis that has engulfed Yemen. We have an ethical duty towards the Yemeni people to support coalitions that seek to cease this senseless war. A solidarity campaign devoted to ending the humanitarian crisis destroying the region will only be successful if the international community shows unwavering and massive support for the “Stop the War in Yemen Campaign”.

Our responsibility includes denouncing the complicity of Western governments in prolonging the deadly 6 year-long humanitarian crises in Yemen. We must insist they use all means to stop the war and help advance peace in Yemen. We demand that our governments cease violating the Arms Trade Treaty and halt all arms sales to belligerents involved in the conflict. All legal avenues must be pursued to investigate the violations of international humanitarian law and arms control regimes by all parties involved and benefiting from this conflict.

We demand that the incoming Biden administration reverse the designation of Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation by the outgoing Trump administration. This classification has the real-world effect of severely disrupting humanitarian aid for the 20 million Yemenis that live under Houthi control – with aid organisations having to choose between violating U.S. law or ending their humanitarian and peacebuilding actions in Yemen. This designation creates conditions tantamount to collective punishment and must be revoked.

We will hold our respective governments along with their partnerships with private institutions accountable for their role in fuelling hostilities through rhetoric and divisive political and economic tactics and for their role in exploiting insecurity in the entire region.
