I am featured among Sweden's top 100 influential women



I am humbled to be featured among some of Sweden's top 100 influential women.
Thank you, Expressen

The 75-year old newspaper reminds us that Sweden could celebrate multi-national Swedes & ensure that a Yemeni refugee like me is welcomed to be the Swede-Ethio-Yemeni she wants to be.
Even though I am not writing in the hope of getting an influence, I pray for that influence -and many other wonderful peace advocates' influence- to bring peace to Yemen. ✊🏽

Is Yemen's mass starvation a war crime?


While the internationally-led pledging conference for Yemen today is believed to be a success, I just co-spoke on Al Jazeera English, along with MSF's Hakim Khaldi and LSE's David Keen about how the international community fails to get Yemeni civilians' priorities right.

Justice for the martyrs!



Like today, last year, human rights activist, Reham Al-Bader was killed by a Houthi sniper while delivering humanitarian aid in Taiz. For Reham, for Taiz' martyrs, never forget, never forgive!




On Sat, Taiz will commemorate four martyrs killed by Houthi snipers over the past 2 years: Photojournalist Mohammed al-Qadasi, journalist Osama Salam, activist Moa'amen Saeed & Reham. Never forget their names Never Forgive Justice for the martyrs!
