Journalist in Yemen: ‘Our People Are Honored to Stand for Palestine’

After carrying out US strikes on Yemen this week in retaliation for its solidarity with Palestine, the Biden administration announced that it is once again designating Yemen’s Ansar Allah (also called the Houthis) as a “terrorist” organization. The impacts of Ansar Allah’s embargo of all ships destined for Israel are far-reaching. The embargo has financially impacted 20% of global trade and revenues at Israel’s key Eliat port has fallen by 80%. Despite the US attacks, Ansar Allah has vowed not to stop until Israel ends the genocide and lifts the siege on Gaza.

Wait! we need your help!

BreakThrough News is building the media arm of the movement. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.

Think to yourself, is this article something that would be published anywhere other than BreakThrough?

Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.

Working-class people deserve better, we deserve media for and by us. We are not funded by billionaires or corporations – we are funded by you. Without you, BreakThrough would not be possible, so become a member and build the media arm of the movement with us.
