[SDCPJ] PLEASE! Call your Senator this week to block arms deal to Saudi Arabia






A Message from the Friends Committee on National Legislation
 

As early as tomorrow, the Senate will vote on the Murphy-Paul-Franken-Lee bill to block a $1.15 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia.
Thanks in no small part to people like you, there is increased momentum for this vote to block the deal in the midst of Saudi Arabia's continued bombings of schools, hospitals, and other civilian areas in Yemen.
Will you call your senators and urge them to block the arms deal to Saudi Arabia?
Please call the Capitol Switchboard at 1-855-68-NO WAR (1-855-686-6927) to urge both of your senators to join Murphy and Paul in blocking bombs to Saudi Arabia. Here are some talking points to help you make your call:
  • Hello, my name is [NAME] and I'm a voting constituent calling from [CITY, STATE].
  • I hope the senator will vote to support the Murphy-Paul bill to block the $1.15 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia.
  • The Saudi-led war in Yemen is a humanitarian catastrophe and the U.S. shouldn't be rewarding the killing of civilians by sending more tanks and other military equipment.
Thanks for all you do for peace,
Kate Gould
Legislative Representative
Middle East Policy
