Yemen Demonstrators Affirm to Stay in Revolution Tents until Demands Met

Thousands of people on Wednesday took to the streets in Yemen's capital Sanaa to affirm the determination of the protesters to stay in the change and freedom squares and not to leave until all goals of the popular uprising which erupted in early 2011 were met.
In the past two days, protesters started to remove their tents from the change square outside Sanaa University and came back to their provinces.
Reports have emerged parties and the revolution organizational committee have started to order protesters to leave the square to spread the popular revolution and reopen roads in downtown Sanaa. The reports, however, were denied though protesters are continuing to remove tents, especially those on the edges of the several-km change square.
Today's demonstration originated at the change square passing through Street 60th and the Assir area where tens of protesters were killed in last year's crackdown.
Demonstrators carried photos of martyrs, who were killed last year, and affirmed they will continue their revolution and their refusal to leave the squares until their demands were met.
They also carried Syrian flag and chanted slogans in support of the Syrian people who have been cracked down by the Assad regime for more than one year, and demanded trials for and departure of relatives of ex-leader, who continue to hold senior military and security positions.
The Yemeni parties signed in November a West-backed power-transfer deal after the mass protests, which has been facing obstruction including rebellion of some military commanders.
Army commanders, including relatives of the ex-president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, have been resisting to give up their posts under decrees by the new president.
