May 12th Updates + Statements

Brussels, 11 May 2011
A 180/11

Statement by High Representative Catherine Ashton on Yemen

Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the Commission, issued the following statement today:

“I am following with the utmost concern the developments in Yemen. I condemn in the strongest terms the ongoing violence and repression against
protesters in Sana’a, Taiz and other cities. I call on the government and
security forces to end the use of violence immediately.

I welcome the statement of the Gulf Cooperation Council of 10 May urging Yemeni parties to sign the political transition agreement. I wish to add my voice to those of the GCC leaders by calling on both sides to sign and implement it without further delay. The solution is there. The moment is now. The Yemeni
people have waited for too long."

Statement on Behalf of the Revolution’s Media Center

We are the youth of the peaceful revolution in all the different revolutionary squares around Yemen; Ali Saleh’s regime holds the complete responsibility on the brutal attacks and the murders against the peaceful youth protesters; particularly the horrific crimes that were committed in this day in Sana’a, Taiz and Hodeidah.

We assure that these criminal acts will only make us more determined to overthrow the regime and trail it by continuing to peacefully escalate until we reach the goals of the people and youth peaceful revolution.

We also call the rest of the Yemenis to quickly join all of the honourable squares to support the youth and to stand by them as well as to reject this corrupted regime that practices all kinds of killing and intimidation against the Yemeni people. We call upon our brothers particularly in the Gulf Countries Council and the countries around the world that staying silent about the crimes that the regime is practicing against the peaceful revolutionary people allows him to commit more of them. We urge you to identify your positions clearly and to stand by the people’s choices and fair demands.

Glory and Eternity to the Martyrs, Victory to the Revolution, Long Live Free Yemen
