Stop Saudi war on Yemen, Dutch religious groups say


This 29 October 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Saudi Atrocities: America Has Blood On Its Hands

TYT’s Eric Byler spoke with Medea Benjamin, co-founder of anti-war activist group Code Pink, about the weapons deals between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia that magnify the death toll in Yemen, and human rights abuses against the Saudi people.

Various Dutch religious and philosophical groups have called on the Dutch government to help to stop the war in Yemen.

The groups include the National Council of Churches, the orthodox Jewish community, the Muslim board for contacts with the government, the Buddhist Union, the Hindu Council and the Humanist Union.

According to Dutch NOS TV, 1 November 2018 (translated):

They also want that “creating famine as a weapon of war should stop” and that a “safe humanitarian corridor should be created for the supply of food and medicine to the hungry Yemeni people“, as stated in UN resolution 2417 (2018).

Reform rabbi Awraham Soetendorp took the initiative for this letter to the government.
