Thousands of Shi'ite Muslim Houthis staged a rally in the capital Sana'a on February 2nd to show solidarity with the Houthi movement's decision to grant Yemen's political factions a three day ultimatum to pull the nation out of its political vacuum.

The protesters said political factions have only two days left to reach an agreement, otherwise the Houthi leadership would take matters into his own hands and form a presidential committee to govern Yemen for an interim period.

Army officials tried to maintain order at the demonstration where protestors burned US, French, and Israeli flags, shouting "Down with the US! Down with Israel!"

The protesters also expressed their view that Yemen is better off without President Hadi and that the people of Yemen will take control of their own political affairs without the President. They also called for the establishment of a presidential committee to take control of Yemen’s political affairs and to pave the way for early presidential elections after President Hadi formally submitted his resignation.

“Cristina! Asesina! Argentina!" went the cries outside of Buenos Aires’ Casa Rosada Monday evening. The Plaza de Mayo setting – home to countless famed moments in Argentine history – was just one of several where Buenos Aires citizens gathered in the thousands to declare their accusation that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was responsible for the death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who only days ago accused the president of covering up Iranian ties to a 1994 terrorist bombing. Similar protests happened all over the country, meaning tens of thousands of Argentines at the very least are convinced that their head of state is somehow responsible for the murder.

Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Protest

Hong Kong,
Sunday, September 28, 2014

There has long been simmering discontent within Hong Kong regarding the granting of universal suffrage when voting for the chief executive in the upcoming 2017 elections. When Beijing handed down a decision that effectively restricted candidates to those of China’s choosing, the pro-democracy camp in Hong Kong promised to fulfil its threat of widespread demonstrations led by a movement known as Occupy Central with Love and Peace.

University students led the way with protests in the government headquarters in late September. This prompted Occupy Central organisers to bring forward their anticipated protests in the Central district. On 28 September thousands gathered near the government headquarters to express their dissatisfaction with Beijing’s arrangements and the Hong Kong’s government’s failure to respond to concerns.

The protesters were remarkable peaceful, but were antagonised by police firing pepper spray into one section of the crowd. Protesters had donned goggles, face masks and raincoats, and armed with umbrellas, protesters were prepared to resist police efforts to disperse the crowds. However, when the police started firing teargas into the crowd, this evoked outrage and shock among many. In fact, the action had the opposite action because it drew out more people to protest against the use of police force.

The protests have remained remarkably peaceful. Protesters have remained ‘camped’ in several areas of Hong Kong to blockade traffic. Many were also seen picking up rubbish and even separating it for recycling! The protest movement, heavily populated with young people, knows it needs to maintain the moral upper ground by not provoking the police.

Crowds are expected to swell in central Hong Kong ahead of Chinese National Day on October 1.

Shia-Houthis buried seven of their followers who were killed in three explosions in the Houthi-run central province of Amran. The Houthis were forced to beef up security during the burial procession in fear of more explosions going off nearby. Family members of those killed say they will continue to sacrifice the lives of their loved ones until the Yemeni government steps down from power and there is a reinstatement of fuel subsidies. Houthis blame Yemen’s main opposition al-Islah party for the explosions that killed the seven protesters. The central province of Amran has been under the control of the Shia-Houthis since July after they defeated the tribal and army forces who were loyal to the government.

No amour of explosions can scare us, we will dedicate dozens of martyrs for the cause of our revolution and until justice is served".
