U.S. Activists Protest Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia

Washington, September 9 (RHC)-- A prominent U.S. human rights organization has organized an event in Washington DC to protest the sale of U.S. weapons to Saudi Arabia.   Activists from Code Pink, a peace and social justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars, condemned the killing of civilians by Saudi Arabia, and expressed solidarity with the Yemeni people.

The protesters painted their hands with red paint to symbolize what they called Washington’s complicity in the killing of innocent Yemeni civilians.  The Code Pink activists also called on U.S. lawmakers to stop spending their tax dollars on supporting the Saudi kingdom.

Arms sales by western governments to Saudi Arabia have come under scrutiny by several rights groups due to Riyadh’s bombing campaign in Yemen.
