Yemen’s child soldiers

Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen (April 19, 2015 Update)

Saudi Arabia, with the help of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Sudan, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Somalia, and the United States, continues its attack on Yemen. This is no war due to being attacked, but one to ensure a Sunni pro-Saudi government is restored in Yemen. So far more than 700 people have been killed, most of them civilians, including dozens of children. More than 150,000 people have been displaced around the country, and children, as young as 7-years old, have watched their schools get demolished, and are now holding weapons instead of books.

I normally wouldn’t endorse things but if you go to this link here then we can try to help preserve water in California.

For those of you that don’t know, CA is experiencing a major drought right now, and it will negatively impact all of the US. The Central Valley, which produces a good majority of all produce every year due to favorable weather conditions during the winter season, will likely have to cut back on production unless the state finds another solution for water.

The governor has asked the people and their business to cut back on water use, but clearly, that’s not enough: the state has one year left of water.

What most people don’t know is that companies account for a majority of CA’s water use–not the people living there. Despite the fact that the state has issued a water conservation alert, Nestlé continues to use up water supply for commercial sale.

If you sign the petition in the link above, we can at least bring awareness to issue and try to convince others to help preserve more water.

Here is a website more on the issue.

Here is a website to the governor of CA’s contact info (for a more direct approach).
