Support House Concurrent Resolution 81 (H.Con.Res. 81) directing the President pursuant to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution to remove United States Armed Forces from unauthorized hostilities in the Republic of Yemen.

This legislation currently has 30 cosponsors, led by Reps. Ro Khanna [D-CA-17], Thomas Massie [R-KY-4], Mark Pocan [D-WI-2], and Walter B. Jones, Jr. [R-NC-3].

H.Con.Res. 81 will receive a vote in the House on Thursday, November 2, 2017.

Libertarians have an opportunity to live up to our stated principles and save lives by working with a broad coalition to insist that the House pass H.Con.Res. 81 and end the war in Yemen.

This is a transpartisan effort to end the humanitarian catastrophe supported by U.S. Armed Forces in Yemen and we need your help!

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP END THE WAR IN YEMEN?

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and insist that they support H.Con.Res. 81

  1. Call the congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121
  2. Ask to be connected with your representative
    (unsure who that is? Enter your zip code here)
  3. When you’re connected with your representative’s office, say:

    My name is [your name] and I live in [your town]. I would like Congressman/Congresswoman [your representative] to co-sponsor House Concurrent Resolution 81 to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen.

    America’s participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen is exacerbating a horrific humanitarian crisis. U.S. military intervention in Yemen is needlessly killing civilians, endangering American security, and continuing a failed, aggressive foreign policy that is not in the interest of Americans or Yemenis.

    I ask that Congressman/Congresswoman [your representative] co-sponsor House Concurrent Resolution 81 to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen.
