BBC English Site: Yemen forces fire on Aden demonstrators

Posted by FREE ADEN on February 22, 2013

Security forces in the Yemeni city of Aden have fired on protesters calling for southern independence, killing at least four and wounding many others.

The demonstrations in the southern port city came on the first anniversary of the uncontested election of President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi.

Supporters of the president are holding a rival protest in the city.

Amnesty International has urged the authorities to end what it calls the routine violent repression of protests.

“The Yemeni authorities must end the routine violent repression of freedom of assembly,” the human rights group said.

“The Southern Movement and its followers have a right to protest peacefully, and the Yemeni authorities must allow them this right.’

Dozens of protesters were wounded 10 days ago when rival rallies clashed and security forces opened fire.

City paralysed

In Thursday’s unrest, security officials said two policemen were wounded by snipers overlooking the main southern separatist protest, the AFP news agency reported.

Nearly 30 separatist protesters were wounded on Thursday in Aden.

The city was paralysed as security forces deployed heavily around to try to keep rival rallies apart, AFP reported.

Pro-government supporters, mostly form the Islamist al-Islah waved Yemeni flags and carried portraits of the president.

Separatist protesters chanted “Revolution in the south, occupiers go out.”

Calls from the south for independence are not new. South Yemen was a former British colony and later a socialist secular state and was not united with the North till 1990.

Many in the south feel they have been disenfranchised for decades.

After the pro-democracy uprising they have had more space to protest.

Demonstrators are calling for more autonomy for the South of the country on the one year anniversary of the uncontested election of President Mansur Hadi. Out of all the revolutions in the Arab world the UN Security Council regards Yemen as a rare success story.  The Gulf Cooperation Council negotiated for President Abdullah Saleh, who had ruled Yemen for thirty-three years, to step down from power.  Elections were held this time last year and President Mansur Hadi was voted in.  But some Yemenis, especially those in the south, feel as if little has changed and are critical that President Hadi was the sole candidate on the ballot.  Thousands of Southern Yemenis wanting more autonomy or independence from the North, have converged on Aden, in regular protests that have been growing since the revolution.  But rival unity protests are also being held today by supporters of the President.  They are being organised by a dominant party in the ruling coalition government, the Islamist Islah party.  Dozens were wounded ten days ago when the rival rallies clashed and security forces opened fire.   Amnesty International has urged the Yemeni authorities to end what it calls the routine violent repression of freedom of assembly.  Calls from the South for independence are not new.  South Yemen was a former British colony and later a socialist secular state and was not united with the North till 1990.  Many in the South feel they’ve been disenfranchised for decades and after the pro democracy uprising they’ve had more space to protest.  But with the recent killings and the arrest of two prominent leaders of the Southern Movement on Wednesday, some fear a return to repression.

21/02/2013.

4 South Arabian protesters have been killed and more than 20 were injured in less than 2 hours by Yemeni security forces and armed personnel of Islah party, partner in the ruling in the Arab Republic of Yemen. This happened during a peaceful protest of Southern Arabians calling for liberation of South Arabia from the Yemeni occupation.  The Tribal State in Yemen got this courage by the recently announced Security Council Resolution which is perceived as a green light of knocking down any protest in South Arabia.

“We are the decision-makers” Gathering in the Capital Aden 27/1/2013

Reconciliation and Tolerance Gathering in 13/1/2013.

Reconciliation and Tolerance Gathering in 13/1/2013

Since last night southern activists have marched from all South Arabia to the capital Aden in hundreds of thousands gathering in “Khormaksar” area. This march and gathering came to show the international community that South Arabian’s are the decision makers to determine what they look for. South Arabian call again in this gathering, and in all previous ones, their fair demand to have their country back which was occupied by Arab Republic of Yemen in 7/7/1994 under the religious excuse of what so called “unity”!

The strange thing is that NO media coverage of this gathering which consist of hundreds of thousands by regional and international media!! This proves the statement that all regional and international media correspondents are limited to Yemeni nationals and tied to top official in the Yemeni occupation system; in addition to that they are totally bias themselves. Many gatherings established by South Arabians, besides events took place in South Arabia are ignored by those correspondents not to mention the fabrication of those correspondents of news to harm the Peaceful Movement of South Arabia.

More than 80 refugees were killed in a government raid against a camp in north Yemen where Shi’ite rebels are challenging President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a camp source and news reports said on Thursday.

A refugee at the at Adi at Wadi Sufyan, at the centre of fighting which erupted in early August, said about 87 people died in the raid on Wednesday afternoon.

The source, who did not want to reveal his name, said the bodies were buried on Thursday, including 45 women and 16 children.

“The camp was taken by surprise by the air force bombing them,” he said. “When one plane starting firing some people ran towards the water canal, but they were killed when the plane fired at them again.”

The independent website News Yemen said 85 people died.

“An air raid hit them in the area when they were sleeping under trees and plastic awnings,” it said, citing witnesses.

It said the air force then staged a second raid on the camp.

The rebels, who also posted images of dead and wounded from a previous alleged air raid in al-Talh on Monday, accused the government on their website of committing brutal crimes.

The International Committee of the Red Cross said the situation was growing more “precarious by the day”.

“The tragic loss of civilian lives in Wadi Sufyan, where more than 80 civilians were reportedly killed, demonstrates that thousands of people are seriously endangered by fighting in remote areas,” Martin Amacher, the acting head of the ICRC delegation in Yemen, said in a statement.

 

‘HORRIFIC ATTACK’

The Yemen Centre for Human Rights, a non-governmental organisation, said it had evidence that planes had targeted a crowded market area in al-Talh, causing dozens of casualties.

“The Centre calls on the Yemeni government, as the party responsible for protecting lives, to order an end to targeting civilians,” a statement said, asking for humanitarian corridors so people and aid could move in safety.

An official statement said Saleh had ordered an investigation into Wednesday’s camp attack. The government has not commented on the reports of deaths on Monday in al-Talh.

On the night of 13/9/2009, thousands of South Arabians gathered in Radfan from most South Arabia’s cities. This gathering was organized by the “Head of South Arabian Revolution” to show consideration with Al Ayam news paper and to free South Arabian peaceful movement’s detainees.

 

So many speakers and sheiks gave their speeches, including three well known social females, and all focused on the unity of South Arabians to get their freedom, freedom for Al Ayam newspaper, freedom of our prisoners.

 

The most important speaker of that night was Dr. Naser Al Khabji who focused on the unity of South Arabians too, and declined that some leaders like Al Atas or Ali Naser are negotiating with the occupation regime. He added that this news comes within the psychological war that the occupation regime is conducting, and he added that all of us agree on the condition of the freedom of South Arabia and NO negotiation under occupation.
