Call / Meeting Info


Event Information

Join the Middle East and Africa (MEAA) Subcommittee of the DSA International Committee for a political education session on the ongoing American-British aggression on Yemen and its relation to the Israeli aggression on Gaza. We will walk through Yemen’s post-unification history, of the Yemeni government’s blockade of Israeli shipping in the Red Sea, and of Yemen’s counter-hegemonic role in the region. The actions of the Yemeni government, led by Ansar Allah (or “the Houthi movement”), are an expression of internationalist solidarity with the Palestinian people and a demonstration of the concrete actions needed to end the genocide in Gaza.

Our guest speakers will include:

  • Rune Agerhus, Political Analyst, International Commission for Solidarity with Yemen
  • Jehan Hakim, Chair, Yemeni Alliance Committee
  • Max Ajl, Researcher, Tunisian Observatory for Food Sovereignty and the Environment

Zoom links will be provided after registration. All are welcome!
