Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are declining to take a formal position against the U.S.-backed Saudi war on Yemen.
Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, the most powerful human rights organizations in the world, are declining to endorse a new political push to end U.S. participation in the catastrophic Saudi-led war on Yemen.
The groups are taking no position on the bill, S.J.Res.54, even as it gains political momentum and a groundswell of grassroots backing from About Face: Veterans Against the War, Just Foreign Policy, United for Peace and Justice, Oxfam America, Indivisible and other organizations.
