Youth's opinion on the Gulf Initiative in Taiz today
Youth opinions of the Gulf Initiative in Sana'a

Regarding the JMP signature of the Gulf Initiative
We are the peaceful youth revolution, we are renewing our firm rejection to the Gulf Initiative that does not represent our revolution at all. We consider it a disregard to the rights of the Yemeni people and a clear convolution on the revolution. Signing the Gulf Initiative by the opposition is an insult to the blood of the martyrs and an underestimation to the demands of the youth's revolution for a political settlement shared by the regime and the opposition. We emphasize that dependency time has long gone, the people are the ones holding the only decision in determining their fate. No one has the right to give out guarantees and immunity and forget about the Yemeni people's rights to those who looted the rights and shed the blood of its citizens.

Hence, we stress that we are continuing our protests in the different Squares and in escalating our peaceful struggle until the remaining parts of this dying regime falls. Also, until we acheive all the goals of our revolution and establish a modern civil country that guarantees freedom, justice, equality security and peace of mind for the revolution and to the friendly countries. Where a Yemeni person can resotre his own freedom, dignity and sovereignty.

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

Mohammed Qahtan: We do not guarantee the lifting of the sit-ins; the youth revolution have clear goals and we want to establish a modern democratic civil country. This revolutionary situation will remain even after the departure of Ali Saleh.
