Sana « a, 9th May–The civil coalition of youth revolution (CCYR) asked the Gulf countries to stop encouraging Ali Abdullah Saleh and his regime, the killing of innocent people of Yemen and to let this nation determine their future themselves.
» The CCYR also called for the people in Europe and America to condemn ”inhuman crimes committed by Salehs regime against peaceful protesters,” warning so-called ambitious people–the dialogue committee and the joint meeting parties–against signing a pro-Saleh initiative..
« The CCYR called the world public opinion, Amnesty International and other human rights organizations, the American government, President Obama and the European Union to condemn, “inhuman crimes committed by Salehs regime against peaceful innocent protesters across Yemeni provinces.”
» The coalition also demanded American and European agencies to “ask for Saleh « s immediate departure from power, as his legitimacy ended, and to condemn the guarantee of Salehs immunity from prosecution offered by the Gulf Cooperation council (GCC).”
» A statement issued by the coalition warned ambitious members of the dialogue committee and joint meeting parties « leaderships against signing the initiative, saying signing would make them “of Salehs advocates and of marginalized politicians, for the initiative is not welcome. We ask our brothers in Gulf countries to apply pressure –and they are able to- on Saleh and his regime to leave. We express our sadness over silent attitudes towards the daily looting and killing of Yemeni people”
» The statement added that, “the meeting held in the GCC took the initiative of declaring a respect for Yemeni people « s choice since the start of the youth revolution,” confirming that the declaration was “deeply trusted by Yemeni people, then the de-legitimized president suddenly asked these countries to offer an initiative to take him out of the difficult situation that resulted from his policies of damage and criminal wars, namely those committed against the south and Saada”
» “People of Yemen welcomed the initiative in its first version including Salehs ouster, with declaring a silent intent of non-investigating the war crimes and the looting of the public budget,” the statement said.
« “Despite the GCC » s conditions included in the first version of necessary consent to the initiative without making any amendments, the GCC, in deference to Salehs will, drew Saleh away signing by making consecutive amendments, starting from the departure demand to transferring authority with a resignation in-between and ridiculing the subject by creating tens of signatures for weightless figures and parties,” the statement added.
“The initiative in its current form depicts the people revolution as a conflict, between Saleh and the joint meeting parties, that the initiative attempts to address by neglecting the matter altogether, saving Saleh and his corrupt regime from collapse and inquiry into a 33-year criminal wars, looting the public wealth and acts of displacement, making the people ignorant and starving,” the statement said.
Saleh “killed peaceful demonstrators, gave the public wealth for thugs, distributed money and firearms for wars against his people, like Al Kadhafi and Alasad did. The GCC gave him a lifeline and an open-ended check to a lasting office term that forms a danger for Yemen, the region and the whole world. They also exempted him from an inquiry into recognized crimes against humanity.”
« The statement confirmed that, “as spokesmen of millions of the Yemeni people across the Yemen » s freedom squares, we demand these countries to stop encouraging Saleh who is killing his people, so that Yemenis could make their destiny themselves, to respect the peoples desire to build a democratic modern civil state, and to bring Saleh to justice along with his followers.
« The coalition stated that “the principle of brotherhood and neighborhood make it necessary for these countries to respect the Yemeni peoples opinion as they very well know dangers of the continued existence of the corrupt dictatorial regime. They also know about his lies about terrorism, so-called Alqaeda, Huthis, Salafi and extremism that he chews in order to illegally procure money and deceive the world.”
