Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for waging a brutal war in Yemen and for assassinating and detaining political enemies and journalists. And President Biden is getting ready to meet with him.
There’s more at stake here than a photo op — this meeting will further legitimize the Saudi regime, make it easier for hawks and war profiteers to push for more weapon sales, and impede ongoing efforts to improve human rights in the region.
Our collective outrage and pressure helped delay this meeting once before. And that collection of voices that spoke out are still strong — there are members of Congress and even folks in the White House who continue to oppose this meeting. And I know grassroots activists like you from all across the country continue to oppose this meeting as well.
We have to express our opposition loudly and quickly to not only potentially help STOP this meeting, but also to set the foundation for actually keeping the Saudi monarchy accountable.
