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.

In support of the demands of the Organizing Committee of the Yemeni Youth Popular Revolution:
Dear members of the United Nations,
Ali Abdullah Saleh, his family and his followers have surrounded us and obliged a collective punishment which prohibited us from having electricity, blocked roads which banned people from moving between governorates and militarized the cities and brought a collective punishment targeting us to obey his dictatorship and regime by force.
Saleh’s regime has killed the protesters, destroyed the houses of citizens, and kidnapped the youth activists and still threatening us with more destruction, burning, kidnapping and murder with his religious Fatwa from some of his supportive religious men taking an advantage of the world’s silence of his crimes.
We’re calling out to the living consciousness, sincerity and holy humanity in you.
Dear persons committed to human rights in the world.. We are being murdered once by Saleh’s regime weapons and his children, and we’re being murdered more by your silence. For the sake of humanity, we call you to support our right to live, our right of freedom and dignity, and for the sake of humanity; stop the shedding of blood in Yemen. And we provide you with primary statistics of the crimes of Saleh, family and thugs against the youth in Change Squares all across the country: Aden 33, Sana’a 358, Taiz 83, Hodiadah 7, Mareb 23, Hadramout 2, Ibb 4,al Baydah 5, Hajjah 2. Total fatalities are 517; injuries exceed 5000.
And for this, we ask the UN for the following:
1- Sending an international investigation envoy to research the crimes committed against the peaceful youth protesters by the Saleh regime and family.
2- The referral of Saleh’s crimes, his family and his regime to the international criminals court.
3- Not providing any guarantees that provide immunity to Saleh and his family from prosecution.
4- Freezing the financial assets of Saleh, his family and his regime responsible persons.
5- Stopping the military aid to the military whilst members of the Saleh family lead any wing of the national defense.
6- Stopping all sorts of financial and technical support.
7- We’re calling you based on the UN Charter and the International Declaration of Human Rights, and the international agreements, charters and covenants, and the statute of the International Criminal Court to stand on the side of the young males and females and the people of Yemen to achieve their legitimate demands in change and establishing a civil, modern and democratic country.
