It’s time to put an end to the murder of innocent people in Yemen.

    1. Petition by

      Yemeni Youth

      Yemen, Yemen

Article 19 of the Universal declaration of Human Rights - Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

This is an independant petition.

This petition will be handed directly to the British government during a meeting in a few weeks time.

  The revolutionists in Yemen have grown disheartened with the lack of adherence and awareness towards the revolution despite the mass butchery that occurs on a daily basis in the streets of Yemen. Since the return of Saleh, there has been incessant violence in both Taiz and Sanaa with the government introducing bleak crackdowns by using heavy artillery to target the protestors. The orders given are shoot to kill, resulting in over 100 confirmed deaths. In the past 9 months ago an estimated 2,000 people have been murdered and 3,000+ severely injured.

The sitution in Yemen has escalated to a point of desolation. There is widespread hunger, lack of essential living aids such as water, gas and electricity, sky rocketing prices and the average man left incapable of providing for himself and his family.

We need tough action, no more prolonged peaceful transitions or negotiations with a regime that refuses to listen. The time has come for them to leave now.

The international community must acknowledge that Yemen’s demands for freedom are legitimate. We are asking you to speak up and exact that your voices be heard, let them know that you are relentless in this fight for freedom.

We ask of the International community too:


- Hold Ali Abdullah Saleh and his collaborators accountable for barbarity towards civilians and be tried as war criminals, in accordance to their violation of a number of articles stated in the International Humanitarian Law *

- Initiate a full investigation backed by the United Nations into the corruption, crimes, economical mismanagement and role of the government in the formation of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen

- Pledge undivided support to the Yemeni Youth revolution.

- Fully condemn Saleh’s autocratic regime for their failure to maintain peace and stability in Yemen.


- Freeze all of Salehs assets, place them towards developmental funds and the national bank for the new goverment. 

- Call for an immediate ceasefire with strict sanctions to be imposed on those who fail to commit to the ceasefire.

- Take prompt action on humanitarian and medical aid that is essentially needed in certain areas of Yemen.

PLEASE SIGN! Our revolution will remain peaceful till the end.

المادة 19 من الاعلان العالمي لحقوق الانسان - لكل شخص الحق في حرية الرأي والتعبير، ويشمل هذا الحق حرية اعتناق الآراء دون أي تدخل، واستقاء الأنباء والأفكار وتلقيها وإذاعتها بأية وسيلة كانت دون تقيد بالحدود الجغرافية 

سيتم تسليم هذه العريضة بشكل مباشر الى الحكومة البريطانية خلال اجتماع سيعقد في مدة اقصاها اسبوعين . 

لقد نما الثوار في جو بائس مع عدم وجود وعي والتزام دولي تجاه الثورة اليمنية على الرغم من المجازر الجماعية التي يرتكبها النظام بشكل يومي . فمع عودة صالح لم تتوقف اعمال العنف في كل من تعز وصنعاء وذلك بشن حملات عسكرية يومية وعشوائية يضرب فيه المدنيين العزل بمختلف انواع الاسلحة المدفعية والقنابل ومصادات الطائرات . لقد اسفرت هذه الاعتدات خلال التسعة اشهر الماضية عن مقتل 2000 شخص وجرح 3000 بجروح بالغة الخطورة .

لقد اصاب الانهيار الاقتصادي والاجتماعي مجمل اطراف الحياة وابسطها من نقص وسائل المعيشة الضرورية كالماء والكهرباء والغاز. وادى ارتفاع الاسعار بشكل خيالي الى تفشي الجوع والفقر على نطاق واسع في جميع ارجاء الوطن اليمني ولم يعد المواطن البسيط قادرا على توفير اقل متطلبات اسرته .

اننا نطالب باتخاذ اجراءات صارمة ضد من تسببوا في بلوغ وطننا هذا المنعطف الخطير ونرفض رفضا قاطعا اعطائهم اي فرص للمساومة او التفاوض ونعلن انه حان الوقت لرحيلهم الفوري عن السلطة .

ان على المجتمع الدولى الاعتراف بالمطالب الشرعية للغالبية العظمى من اليمنيين بالحق في العيش بحرية وكرامة علي ارض وطننا .  فمن اجل كل الشرفاء الذين يقفون الان في الساحات اليمنية يتلقون  الرصاص بصدور عارية الا من حب الوطن ومن اجل مستقبل خال من الخوف ندعوكم الى الوقوف وقفة واحدة لنسمع اصواتنا الى المجتمع الدولي ومطالبته بالتالي :

-القاء القبض على علي عبدالله صالح ورموز نظامه للاعمال الاجرامية الهمجية والانتهاكات التي ارتكبوها ضد المدنيين العزل ومحاكمتهم كمجرمي حرب وفقا للمواد المنصوص عليها في القانون الدولي الانساني .

-الشروع باجراء تحقيق شامل مدعوما من قبل الامم المتحدة في قضايا الفساد وسؤ الادارة الاقتصادية  والتحقيق في دور نظام صالح في تشكيل تنظيم القاعدة والسماح له باتخاذ الاراضي اليمنية مسرحا لعملياته الارهابية .

-ادانة نظام صالح الاستبدادي وفشله في الحفاظ على الامن و الاستقرار والسلام في اليمن .

-الدعوة الفورية لكافة الاطراف المتصارعة لوقف اطلاق النار وسحب جميع الاسلحة من المدن الرئيسية . وفرض عقوبات صارمة على من لا يلتزم بذلك .

-التعهد بدعم ثورة الشباب اليمنين .

-الاسراع بتقديم المساعدات الانسانية والطبية الى المناطق التي تشهد صراعات . وكذا المناطق التي هي في حاجة ماسة للمساعدة.

 

ســـوف تــبــقى ثــورتــنــا ســلــمـيــة حـــتـــى الـــنــهــايــــة .

       حينما تعود الى بيتك حدثهم عنا وقل لهم

                                 من اجل غدهم نمنحهم حاضرنا                              

 

سوف تناقش العديد من النقاط الاخرى بمزيد من التفاصيل في الاجتماع .

      Enough is Enough, Saleh should know nothing lasts forever, and the time has come for him to go with his malicious, backward, self serving government.

      The people of Yemen who demonstrate on the streets are heroic, they stand up to be counted and demand change, they do this despite the threat of slaughter from the ruling oppressive regime.

      Yemen has had a long and rich history, it can have a long and rich future if the government that comes next acts on behalf of the many instead of the interests of the few.

      Go Saleh, you have held your people down for too long and given them nothing, you and your kind on the other hand have prospered but at what cost? On judgement day we all must answer for our actions.
