Thousands of people protested in Yemeni capital Sanaa on Sunday, to condemn the Saudi-led war on Yemen in a conflict that is now in its third year.

Several Houthi flags and images of Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi dotted the landscape, carried by scores of chanting protesters. A member of the Houthi political bureau accused the Saudi-led intervention of committing crimes against Yemen, and expressed the desire of the people not to negotiate with the coalition, only for the “brutal aggression” to end.

The Saudi-led bombing campaign continues in Yemen along with US backing, with casualty figures exceeding 16,200 people since the beginning of the war in March 2015. A reported 40,000 have been injured and more than three million people have been displaced.

Earlier this year, the UN made an urgent appeal to stave off famine in the country, as over 7 million people are facing the plight of starvation. Currently, over three million people, including 2.1 million children, are acutely malnourished.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
