As the bombs fall, and the people of Yemen wonder how much more bloodshed they’ll witness, a determined group of protestors marched on the embassy of Saudi Arabia in London.
There is growing anger at the west and the coverage of the fast deteriorating situation. Britain has given its support of the Saudi action but has said nothing about the growing humanitarian crisis.
It’s been over a week since the bombardment of Yemen by Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners began and protesters in London want governments like those in Washington and London to do more to try and convince its middle eastern partner in Riyadh to stop the bombardment, to stop the killing of innocent women and children.
So far it seems, the pleas to find a diplomatic solution to Yemen’s crisis, one that does not involve the killing machines of Saudi and co have fallen on deaf ears.
