Based on our united peaceful struggle in this revolution and the embodiment of the revolutionary partnership, along with the transparency principle, we, -youth of the peaceful revolution- condemn what the committee that is assigned to welcome the UN Commissioner of Human Rights mission that visited the Change Square yesterday, Wednesday, for questionable behaviours and concealing a type of ambiguity and lack of revolutionary transparency, including:
1. Not informing lawyers committees and those in charge with monitoring and documenting of the UN mission visit to the Change Square. Where they were supposed to inform them in advance of that visit so that all the competent committees can provide all their documents, photos and videos; and so that that they can be processed and submitted in a full file to be handed over to the UN mission during their visit.
2. Calling for a mass march at the same time the UN mission is scheduled to arrive to the Change Square and emptying the Square from the youth.
3. Disappearance of all the photos that show the forms of violations and extent brutality of the regime in suppression on the protesters, which were scattered in the Change Square, from the UN mission. All that was presented to the mission from martyrs’ photos were only personal photos (IDs) before their death.
Therefore, the youth revolution are holding the JMP and the committee charged to receive the delegation all the negative results that may emerge from the results of the investigation. We demand them to reveal and explain the reasons for those actions that led to limit the amount of violations and not give them enough coverage, this counts as a large complicity with the regime. We hold them fully responsible on these actions and on the martyrs blood who died for the objectives of our glorious revolution.
Glory and eternity for the pure martyrs, recovery for our heroic injured, victory for the revolution.
Long live free Yemen.
