Action Alert: Save TPS for Yemen!

The Trump administration is deciding whether to allow Yemenis — fleeing one of the most brutal humanitarian crises in the world — to remain in the United States. With the U.S. fueling the devastating Saudi- and UAE-led coalition war in Yemen, we MUST have a pathway for Yemenis seeking refuge here. Demand Representative Nydia M. Velázquez and Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten E. Gillibrand do everything they can to save TPS for Yemen NOW! Add your name to Save TPS for Yemen

What’s Happening In Bolivia? Get Informed & Take Action for Peace

We are very concerned about recent developments in Bolivia. Freedom of the press has been threatened by the government, resulting in an alarming lack of coverage of the gross human rights violations being committed by the armed forces against civilian unarmed protesters. An executive order issued by the currently acting president exempts the military from criminal responsibilities related to the use of force.
See this report form Medea Benjamin, currently in Bolivia. Sign petition urging Micelle Bachelet, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, to go to Bolivia to provide witness and support for human rights.

End U.S. Support for Turkey’s Invasion of Syria

We watch in dismay and anger as Turkey invades northeastern
Syria in an attack on the Kurds and the Rojava communities there. This invasion would not be happening without U.S. support.

Following are some articles to help understand what’s happening.
BFP does not officially endorse these articles but the information may not be found elsewhere, and the perspectives are worth considering.
If you’re not familiar with Rojava, see the
Call to Defend Rojava: An Open Letter published April 23, 2018.
Signatories include Noam Chomsky and others.
