This is a video on the anti-dictatorship movement in Yemen. Regime thugs attack a pro-democracy demonstration in Sanaa.

17 April 2011.

NOS TV writes about it today, translated from their Dutch:

Yemeni women demonstrate against president

In Yemen, more than one hundred thousand people demonstrated against President Saleh. It was a reaction to a remark by the president yesterday that to demonstrate is supposedly “anti-Islamic”. Among the protesters were also many women who reacted to misogynistic statements by the president.
