Activists demand Biden to end support for Saudi-led war in Yemen

Demonstrations took place in several US cities — including New York, neighbouring Newark, and San Francisco — while the former leader of the UK’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, actor and activist Danny Glover and prominent academic Cornel West attended an online rally.

The war in Yemen began in late 2014 when the Houthis seized Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, sparking a civil war that forced President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to seek refuge in the coastal city of Aden, and then later Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, anti-war campaigners say putting an end to the bombing campaign remains among their first priorities, and this means ending US support for the war.
