Dozens at Brattleboro Rally

Two dozen people attended a rally in Brattleboro on March 27, 2022. The goal was to get Biden and congress to stop supporting war in Yemen. The event organizers have a web site at www.ActionCorps.org.

On January 25, 2021 in Northampton there was a rally to demand Biden enforce a law that should be stopping corporations based in the USA from selling bombs and other weapons that are being used by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to kill people in Yemen. About 35 people were at the Northampton rally, Marty Nathan, MD told the Valley Post in January 2021. About 250,000 people have died in the Yemen war, the UN web site said in January 2021. The site said it was “the world's worst humanitarian crisis.”

Yoav Elinevsky lives in Amherst and is on the board of Massachusetts Peace Action, one of the groups that organized the rally. In a January 26, 2021 voice phone interview Elinevsky told the Valley Post, “The rally went really well. The biggest weapons makers in the U.S. sell billions in weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The Leahy law, named after Vermont senator Pat Leahy, bans this. Biden needs to enforce this law.”
