End the War on Yemen!

On January 22, 2021 the Nuclear Ban Treaty comes into effect at the United Nations. None of the nuclear states are party to this treaty, and it is up to people who live in these nations to do all that is possible to call for them to: end the new nuclear arms race they are all engaged in, abide by Article VI under the NPT to negotiate nuclear disarmament and join the Ban Treaty.
The international community has declared a day to call for an end to the war on Yemen on January 25, 2021. The U.S. and UK have been allied with Saudi Arabia and the UAE by providing support, intelligence and selling weapons to both nations for attacks on Yemen. Yemen is one of the poorest nations in the Middle East and has been catapulted into the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
Join this standout to declare: Nuclear Weapons are Illegal and End the War on Yemen!
