The Yemeni people have been protesting for 8 months peacefully, demanding a political regime change from an autocratic, corrupt system to a just, civil and transparent rule of law.

Their peaceful protests have been ruthlessly attacked by the presidential regime, killing hundreds and injuring tens of thousands. 

 Political transition has been hijacked by the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Join the Yemeni Youth and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkol Karman in their call for measures & TARGETED SANCTIONS against President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

You can listen to their voices here: http://voicesfromyemen.wordpress.com/

The demands:

1. An international investigation into the Saleh regime’s ruthless crackdown on peaceful youth protesters.

2. The referral of Saleh, his family and his regime to the ICC (International Criminal Court).

3. Abstaining from providing guarantees that ensure immunity to Saleh and his family from prosecution.

4. Freezing the financial assets of Saleh, his family and his regime officials.

5. Halting all military and paramilitary aid to Saleh’s regime.

6. Refraining from providing financial and technical support to the Saleh regime.

7. Help the people of Yemen to achieve their legitimate demands in political regime change and to establish a civil, modern and democratic country.

Please support these legitimate demands.
