Next stop: Yemen. Af Autonom Infoservice (25. marts 2011)
“I Tunesien og Ægypten har folkeopstandene fejet diktatorene fra magten. I Libyen forsvarer oprørerne desperat de befriede byer i en hård kamp mod Gaddafi-klanens elitetropper. Nu er turen kommet til Yemen.”

Le Monde Diplomatique

Opprørets mangfoldige enhet. Av Laurent Bonnefoy (nr.6, juni 2011)
“I Jemen pågår det et folkeopprør uten sidestykke. Mangfoldet blant demonstrantene og den ikke-voldelige mobiliseringen minner om Tunisia og Egypt. Revolusjonens enkle, men radikale mål (avsette diktatoren), bryter med inntrykket av Jemen som et voldelig og konservativt land.”

JMP rallies in Taiz were mainly expressions of progressive nationalist politics. In Taiz, many youth carried posters of Che Guevara. This signaled a resurfacing of Marxist politics, which has a long history in the country, especially in Aden and other cities of the pre-unity south.

Yemen revolution: Saleh regime on the verge of collapse. By Frederik Ohsten (24 March 2011)

The Class struggles in South Yemen. By Frederik Ohsten (12 January 2010)

“Yemen is among the world’s most corrupt and least developed nations, factors that explain a long running war in the north and an exploding independence movement in the south. Yemeni President Ali Abdallah Salih deals with legitimate dissent by jailing journalists, shooting protesters, and bombing civilians on a scale that reaches the level of war crimes. Salih has long been an al-Qa’ida enabler, but the December 25, 2009 Christmas Day terror attack brought new urgency to U.S.-Yemeni relations.”

“It considers these parties’ historic development and how they adjusted to the changed circumstances of the post-Cold War world. The YSP has fared much better than its Afghan counterpart. There are many reasons for this, but perhaps the most striking is the legacy of the past regime. The YSP was far better at institutionalizing its position in Yemeni society than was the PDPA in Afghan society.”
