Voices for Creative Nonviolence
Kathy Kelly explains how much of the war and terror from Saudi Arabia, particularly in Yemen, is supplied by the United States and how the climate of that needs to change. For those imprisoned she says, being imprisoned herself over sixty times, says that, "imprisonment last a long time".

She urges us to forge unity and resist against the malicious act of the United States and push for accountability.
