U.S. Congress Finally Votes to End One of Its Wars
Following major public pressure by World BEYOND War and many other organizations, both houses of the U.S. Congress have finally voted together to end U.S. participation in a war, the war on Yemen. This is the first such use of the War Powers Resolution since its passage in 1973. Here’s who voted which way. Now we need Trump not to veto, and if he vetoes Congress to override. Then we need Congress to pick another war to end, and another, and another, and the preparations for any more. Thank you to everyone who has helped thus far!
