No "We are the children"
for the children of Yemen

80 percent of people in the Arab world's poorest country are in danger of starving to death under a US-backed and US-enabled blockade and bombing campaign.

Have the CNN, BBC, NBC, Fox, Sky, etc told you about that?

Obviously news that doesn't directly touch on Russia.

(The Saudi campaign in Yemen wouldn't be possible without American diplomatic, intelligence and logistics backing.)

Horn of Africa - people caught in the Malthusian Trap


Aid agencies have accused the world's richest countries of ''wilful neglect'' in failing to fund appeals to save millions of Africans from famine.
Nearly 11 million people are at risk of starvation in the Horn of Africa, including 500,000 children who "are suffering from imminent, life-threatening severe malnutrition," according to UNICEF. 1.6 million additional children under five years old are severely malnourished.
