Massive Demonstration Marks New Era of Revolution in Yemen Capital

 Yemen Post Staff

Thousands of Yemeni people poured onto the streets of the capital Sanaa, in a demonstration which marked a new era of the popular uprising amid ongoing demolition of the protest camps across the republic.
For the first time since the uprising erupted in early 2011, the demonstration passed through areas including the presidential zone and other places which have been very dangerous since loyalists of the ex-regime have been stationed there to crack down on revolutionaries.
The people gathered on Taiz Street and walked passing through many streets chanting 'freedom and dignity slogans'.
They carried the flags of Yemen and Syria and chanted slogans: the people want to prosecute the serial killer, referring to the ex-leader, Saleh; and 'the people want to build a new Yemen'.
They also chanted slogans in solidarity with the Syrian people, who have been struggling to oust the Assad regime for more than one year.
The Yemeni parties signed in November a West-backed power-transfer deal, which saw Saleh relinquish power after 33 years in office and after almost nine months of protests against his rule.
Saleh signed the deal in return for full immunity from prosecution over administrative and financial corruption and his aides were given immunity from prosecution, but not from terrorism-related issues.
Locals in some areas warmly welcomed the protesters and poured waters and sweets over them, chanting together: corrupt officials must go out and free people must build a new Yemen.
The protesters held a sit-in at the republican palace in downtown Sanaa, not far from the change square, and chanted slogans blessing the victory of the forces against Al-Qaida militants in Abyan province.
The Yemeni army on Tuesday waged fierce battles against Al-Qaida militants forcing them from their last strongholds in Abyan after months of a US-backed offensive.
