Yemen's Youth Revolution Announces Final Plans to Force Saleh to Step Down

By Fatik Al-Rodaini

Sana'a, May 10, 2011- Yemen's youth revolution and the opposition coalition, the Joint Meeting Parties, announced on Tuesday their final plans to force Yemen's longtime embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down immediately.

In a statement posted in the internet, it said that the next Tuesday it will be the Day of Crawling to the republican palace where President Saleh lives in order to force him to step down.

''President Saleh takes benefit from the time in order to deplete the youth revolution,'' the statement said. "By escalating our reactions against him we can achieve the victory to our revolution," statement added.

The statement contented on ten steps which will accomplish the goal of youth revolution.

Youth revolution's statement coincided with the meeting of the leaders of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, Tuesday to discuss regional issues. The political crisis in Yemen between President Saleh and the opposition is on its agenda after a recent GCC plan to end the stalemate fell apart.

Youths in Yemen believed that the Saudi and US stance wanted to deplete their revolution in favor of President Saleh.

The GCC offered an initiative to solve the current crises in Yemen between the tuling GPC and the opposition, but it was stalled because Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh rejected to sign the agreement.

President Saleh has been facing nationwide protests since the beginning of February demanding his immediate ouster.
