Protesters in Taiz provinces called on Sunday, the expulsion of U.S. ambassador Gerald Feierstein from Yemen, following his statements on the peaceful March of Life launched from Taiz to Sana'a when he said it was not a peaceful march.
The protesters in Sana'a also called on during their demonstration today, the U.S. ambassador to leave Yemen, carrying banners condemning his statements.
Pointing out that the U.S. ambassador's remarks are irresponsible and do not meet the hopes and aspirations of the Yemeni youth who are looking for change.
They also asked him to withdraw his statements and apologize to the people of Yemen, pointing out that 15 of the martyrs were killed and more than 200 wounded in the March of Life by the forces of President Ali Saleh, who is trying to defend him.
Firestein, said in his statement to pressmen following the events of the March of Life, which saw confrontations between demonstrators and Saleh security forces, said that "the March of Life is not peaceful, and its access to Sana'a is to generate chaos led to cause a violent response by the security forces".
"It is not legal, so the government has the right to maintain law, if people said they want to reach the presidential palace and parliament to surround them, this is not legitimate." Firestein added.
