An Evening of Poetry, Music and Discussion For The People Of Yemen

The world's worst cholera epidemic and humanitarian crisis has developed in Yemen, already one of the world's poorest country. That is the result of a horrific war unleashed on that country and its people by Saudi Arabia which reacted to a takeover there by Houthi rebels. The Saudis see the rebels as allies of Iran, its enemy in the region. But The conflict has been fueled and expanded by support to Saudi Arabia from the United States which has sold them millions of dollars weapons which have been unleashed on Yemen. The United States is said to have troops on the ground which could lead to an even greater and dangerou regional war. 

Speakers and artists for this evening event will be announced shortly. 

Contributions for humanitarian aid to Yemen will be accepted.
