Yemen Hunger Strike Day of Action

New York City; April 10, 2017

From the Organizers:

A fast and vigil at the Isaiah Wall outside the UN Headquarters to support the one week solidarity hunger strike organized by Voices for Creative Nonviolence, New York Catholic Worker, the Upstate Coalition to End the Wars and Ground the Drones, Friends of Franz and Ben, and CODEPINK. The hunger strike is scheduled for April 10-16.

As we fast from all solid foods, we urge others to join us in calling for a humane response to the famine facing Yemeni civilians whose country has been ravaged by civil war and regularly targeted by Saudi and U.S. airstrikes.
