January 25: The World Says No to War on Yemen

January 25: The World Says No to War on Yemen


Samidoun has joined with over 300 organisations from 18 countries to sign up for a call to action against the war on Yemen so far, making this the biggest international anti-war co-ordination since the campaign against the Iraq war. This protest is timed to take place just days after the inauguration of Joe Biden, who has promised to end US support for the war. This is our one central aim – to hold him to his word and force fellow governments to follow suit.

Unfortunately, due to the circumstances in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic many of the planned physical protests have had to be postponed but our global movement will not be silenced. For the World Says No to War on Yemen Global Online Rally we have brought together a group of prominent voices from across the world to speak out against this utterly brutal war and call for its immediate end.

Amongst those joining us at 7pm GMT on Mon 25th January will be…

Ahmed Al-Babati (British-Yemeni Soldier)
Dr. Shireen Aladeimi
Apsana Begum MP
Jeremy Corbyn MP
John Finucane MP (Sinn Féin)

Danny Glover (Actor)
Kate Hudson (CND)
Daniele Obono (French National Assembly Member)
Yanis Varoufakis (MeRA25 Secretary-General)
Dr. Cornel West
