US Ambassador to Yemen to Attend Pro Saleh Event; Yemen American Activists Angered

Yemeni revolution activists are angered that US ambassador to Yemen Gerald M. Feierstein accepted to attend an event that will be organized by the (pro Saleh) Yemen-American Political Action Committee (YAPAC) in the United States on the 20th of October.


Leaders of the Yemeni community in the US, heads of pro-revolution agencies and activists turned down an invitation by YAPAC to attend the event, which will be held in the US state of Michigan, saying their attitude was on the ground that YAPAC backs the former president and his aides and after it refused to announce a pro-revolution position.

The activists contacted the US department of state expressing their dissatisfaction of the ambassadors attendance and their personal refusal to attend the event that will be organized by YAPAC.

Members of YAPAC never staged or backed demonstrations against dictatorship and corruption, activists said, insisting the committee backs the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh who resigned after the 2011 unrest.

The US department of state did not cancel the ambassadors plans to attend the YAPAC event, but accepted that the ambassador also meets the pro-revolution people and organizations away from the venue and time of the pro-Saleh event.

A Yemeni American activist says that in less than a week, revolution supporters defeated the loyalists and relatives of the ousted president earlier this week when Harvard University in Boston cancelled recommendations playing down the importance of restructuring the armed forces and rejecting sanctions against the obstructers of the political transition in Yemen.

The recommendations were expected to be presented by a Yemeni workgroup close to foreign minister Abu Bakr Al-Qirbi at a conference on Yemen early next week.

The cancellation came after wide protest by the revolution fans and led to a decision by the university to reconsider doubtful funds for the conference organizers provided by the business manager of Yahya Muhammad Saleh, a nephew of the former president who holds the post of head of staffs at the central security organization.

This commander is expected to be replaced next week amid calls to accelerate the restructuring of the armed forces to pave the way for a productive national dialogue conference.

Yemen's revolution leaders say that loyalists of the former president including professors, businessmen and scientists receive large funds from unknown bodies with the aim to play down the importance of the restructuring of the Yemeni forces and to resist sanctions against the obstructers of the West-backed power-transfer deal.
