Toronto, September 8, 2018
The Latin American and Caribbean Solidarity Network (LACSN) a democratic, non-profit and independent organization based in Toronto, that brings together various grassroots groups, networks and organizations that carry out work in solidarity with progressive and democratic transformation processes taking place in Latin America and the Caribbean.
I stand today on behalf of LACSN in solidarity with the people of Yemen. LACSN strongly condemns the deadly air strike in Yemen, which killed 22 children and four women.
For the past 4 years, the western backed Saudi-led coalition have targeted everything in Yemen. The list includes hospitals, factories, bridges, water tanks, power stations, school, universities, wedding halls and even cemeteries! This has caused a severe damage to the Yemeni economy and tens of thousands of people have lost their lives.
LACSN members stand in unity condemning the continuous attacks on the people of Yemen, where women and children are victims of this horrendous attacks.
We call for a cease fire and for a peaceful end.
We call to stop the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia
We call to save the people of Yemen
Stop the slaughter
The people united will never be defeated!
