#SupportYemen – Silence Kills!

Yemen has been facing a humanitarian crisis for the past 8 months. This protest is to condemn the world’s silence and the current media blackout towards Yemen’s peaceful revolution, its peoples struggles and peaceful plight to over throw a dictatorial regime.

The protests are scheduled to be at the same time and in different cities across the world, where there is large Yemeni communities. The event will also be held in cities in Yemen. It will be a silent protest. The plan for this protest will consist of protesters standing for two hours with tape over their mouths to symbolize the worlds silence and indifference in Yemen.

These people have been protesting for 8 months now. Two short hours can do so much and its up to us to try our hardest to break the silence. Support Yemen stand, in solidarity with its people. Your support IS important to us. It is a life-line for MILLIONS of Yemenis! The event will be held on Saturday, September 24th of 2011.

Time of the event will be at 12:00 PM – 2:00PM
