Youth Led Sit In: Condemning Political Interest Group’s Exploitation of Revolution

Location: 60m Street, Sana’a Yemen
Date: June 14, 2011

Youth and opposition members organize a march demanding the initiation and establishment of the transition government. In this rally, tensions were high, as there were disagreements b/w Youth organizers and members of the opposition (specifically the Islah) on whether to march or launch a sit in. As members of the opposition pushed the masses to march, a couple of hundred Youth demonstrators stood their ground on 60m Street and planned on remaining there for three days; however, they were met by dozens of Mohsen soldiers, who warned that if the sit in didn’t grow, they would consider the demonstrators thugs and be compelled to react w/ force; forcing demonstrators to leave.
