Yemeni-Americans with the group Liberate Yemen launched a hunger strike on March 29 to demand an end to the Saudi-led and U.S.-backed blockade of Yemen. Considered the worst humanitarian crisis taking place in the world today, the U.N. says millions face starvation and 400,000 children could die if conditions are not improved. President Biden has announced an end to aid for the Saudi offensive, but hunger striker Iman Saleh says the U.S. must end all military aid to the Saudis.
