Coordinating Council of the Youth Revolution of Change condemns the attack carried out by the First Armored Division against the protestors of Victory Square in 60th Street, in which they used live ammunition and weapons; small and medium, we also call on the coordination of all revolutionary forces to support the youth immediately in 60th Street, which is an extension of Change Square We also call for an urgent investigation about what happened, we have been told that the reasons for the attack was that a definitive source for the First Armored Division confirmed that the Organizational Committee and the elements that will be named later on had informed the leadership of the division that the young youth who came out in the sit-in in 60th Street are infiltrators and saboteurs and carrying weapons as they aslo have told them that they have been monitoring the movements of some people and have given their names for the division saying that the monitored people are believed to be national security agents where ironically the actually names that participated are for reporters , and senior doctors, including media anchor/Ahmad Al-Musibli. Therefore, the Coordinating Council for the Youth Revolution of Change demands an answer from the Organizational Committee to disclose the reasons for why troops from the division were sent to to the demonstrations which were aimed to uprise the revolution and to as well notify the division.

We call upon all the revolutionaries to not recognize this party associated group which has been spreading lies about youth and has long sought to resolve the revolution and call for the formation of a Transitional Council as soon as possible and we call on the revolutionary youth to continue the revolution and not to wait for the GCC initiative in there tents seemingly a negative step in the direction of the path of the revolution.

A statement regarding the attacks by the First Armored Division on the peaceful protesters in 60th Street

The Media Council of the Youth Revolution in the Change Square of Sana'a condemns the brutal attack inflicted on the youth revolutionaries during their sit-in in 60th Street near the acting President AbduRabo Mansour Hadi's house to demand the formation of an urgent Presidential Transitional Council to manage the country in the transitional phase by the First Armored Division. The soldiers assaulted the youth and hit them with batons and rifles as well as fired live bullets to the air to intimidate and terrorize the youth. They also threatened them with death if they continue in the sit-in and arrested some of the youth that we don't know their fate until now. They did not even respect the females where they were assaulted as well and intimidated.

As a result of this barbaric irresponsible act which corresponds with Saleh's regime, puts us in front of a mysterious picture of the disposition of actions in the next phase. It is a violation of the freedom and rights of peaceful expression in a revolution that did not end yet. Therefore, we call for an immediate investigation under the supervision of the youth who were assaulted to find out the reasons and circumstances that led to these attacks. Although the mechanism and organization of this planned march that was announced in advance with its goals was already mentioned to the First Armored Division before it happened and they never showed any objection.

We renew our complete rejection of any unequivocal support to the revolution or the youth by any party that is restricting the freedom of the revolutionaries and restraining them from continuing their peaceful struggle until meeting all their demands. As we also reject any attempts to militarize the revolution or to circumvent it in any way possible.

Asserting that these irresponsible acts will not deter us from continuing our revolution until achieving all the demands and goals of the revolution and to build the modern civil state.

Glory and eternity to the martyrs, victory to the revolution, and love live free Yemen
