Fadi ToOn: Taiz, Yemen: Five Years of Siege – Call for solidarity

Our Yemeni cartoonist friend Anas Alathwary‎‏ has sent us this call for solidarity with the innocent people of Taiz to lift the siege on them.

To: All the Cartoonists around the world;
Taiz, Yemen: Five Years of Siege
Taiz Governorate is one of the most populated governorates in Yemen. It is well-known as a city of culture and arts. It’s a capital city is, in its three main entrances, being under the siege for five years (from 2015 up to now) because of the conflict. The road is a public right guaranteed by all the religions, laws and humanitarian conventions. However, the roads to this city are blocked. No other ways for people to go in and out of the city except one mountainous risky road with high expensive costs and instead of 10 minutes, at least five hours are spent on going in and out of the city. Even the goods, medicines and supplies are brought only through this road, which doubles the costs of such needs.
A lot of people died as a result of such a siege, particularly elderly and ill people, i.e. those suffering from cancer and kidney failures. People, including youth, women, children, etc. pay a lot of financial, economic, health, social, etc. costs for this tight unjust siege.
It is a humanitarian case that needs the world’s humanitarian consideration.
