Vigil for Yemen at Downing Street

by New Worker correspondent

MEMBERS of the Yemeni community in London held a silent protest opposite Downing Street last Saturday to demonstrate against the killing of peaceful protesters in Sanaa by troops loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The vigil, timed to coincide with more mass protests in Yemen, was a silent one, with protesters standing with tape over their mouths with the message “Silence Kills” and placards listed the number of deaths and called for freedom rather than slaughter in the Yemen. Many held the red, white and black Yemeni tricolour and others had it painted on their faces.
