Yemeni community in Canada to protest against Saudi war on March 26
SANAA, March 13 (YPA) – The Yemeni Community in Canada is to organize a protest in the Canadian capital, Ottawa, on March 26, 2018, the 3rd anniversary of the illegal Saudi War on Yemen, according to a statement issued by the Community on Sunday.
During the protest, a letter will be handed over to the government of Canada, concerning demands on halting arms sales to Saudi Arabia, lifting the blockade imposed on Yemen, and pressuring Saudi regime to stop the war.
Canada has sold weapons of war to Saudi Arabia, and on that ground alone Canada has made itself an accessory to Saudi Arabia’s crimes.
“The Yemeni Community in Canada will call on March 26, 2018 on the government of Canada to immediately halt all such dealings of war with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the statement said.
The protest will start in front of Prime Minister Trudeau’s residence in Ottawa, and then participators will march to Global Fairs Canada, Saudi Embassy and stop by the Parliament, according to the statement.
