May 1st Updates

Omar Obali died yesterday from wounds he survived from rape, due to the fact his mother testified in the dead of another child shot by government forces as a witness.

Rami Barmeel went out with some friends from Abu-Thar Al-Ghafari School in Mukalah in a peaceful protest calling for the resignation of the regime on March 12, 2011. That day he got shot in the head and passed away; no one witnessed the shooting except for an old poor lady that worked in Khaled Bin Al-Waleed School Mukalah. This lady testified against security forces; although she was threatened, she still testified. On April 4 2011 her son, Omar Obali got raped and she was suspended from her job.

The rape left some physical scars on the child who was hospitalized to Aden for a surgery by his mother. Doctors in Aden adviced her to send her son to Sana'a for treatment. Today evening, while Hood Organization were confirming hotel reservations to Omar's mom and contacting the Science and Technology University Hospital to secure the procedures; Omar died on his way to Sana'a. April 30th 2011.
In a statement by Hood Organization on May 1st: We all upon all the youth in the different squares around Yemen to maintain their peaceful protesting and their approach of a non-violent demand for change. You have made a stunning global model for a continuous peaceful struggle; where you have put down the hopes of many who said you will be violent. Your refusal to be dragged behind the schemes and attempts to change your non-violent ways made the world stand in tribute. Make sure you stay this way to cut down all the roads for advocates of sedition and warmongers.
