Cambridge Dear Cole,

Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), the architect of the
Saudi/US war in Yemen, is planning a visit
this Saturday and Sunday to Cambridge and Boston, where he is expected to
visit both MIT and Harvard. Join us on Friday as we protest at MIT and ask
MIT to decline to host him.

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia, with vital support from the United States, has
been waging war in Yemen. Tens of thousands of civilians have
killed; over one million cases of cholera have been reported; and 22
million civilians are threatened by famine. Two million Yemenis are
displaced and they are living in squalid conditions, lacking basic
amenities such as clean water and healthcare.
Please join us in protest of MBS' visit to MIT!

MIT and Saudi Arabia cooperate on cybersecurity, technology, and economic
development. Saudi Aramco is a *founding*
member of the MIT Energy Initiative, and Saudi Arabia has an active
with the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST
which it should terminate, due to Saudi’s human rights violations.
