Eleanor Goldfield, host of Act Out! devotes the entire new episode to the crisis in Yemen, in which a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition has targeted civilians and infrastructure crucial for survival, leaving hundreds of thousands starving.
Here’s how Goldfield describes her guest:
Bushra al-Fusail is a Yemeni-American who lived under the ongoing airstrikes in Yemen for months before coming, ironically, to the country that makes the destruction of hers possible. Far from tucking herself away, she has been working tirelessly both on the streets and in the halls of Congress to raise awareness of the ongoing conflict in Yemen and perhaps most importantly, of the US role in the death and destruction in her home country.
In this special episode, she outlines the reality of war, the backstory of Saudi’s involvement in Yemen, the US role in the war and how we, the people of the US can #RememberYemen and push to end this horrific war.
