On Thursday May 23, hundreds of people gathered on 60street to demand justice for two Youth that were shot dead the week before and whose killers have not been arrested yet.
On May 15, tribesmen reportedly linked to Sheikh Ali Abd Rabo Al-Awadhi, a powerful tribal leader and a National Dialogue participant killed Khalid Al-Khatib, 22 years old, and Hassan Aman, 20 years old.
Circumstances and motives of the crime are still unclear but the authorities are still looking for the criminals.
Thursday’s protest was organized to demand a rule of law and equal citizenship, as many think that corrupt powerful men can kill and steal, and get away with it.
Protesters marched to the house of President Hadi and chanted different slogans such as “Where is Justice, Mr. President?”, “Speak loudly, no more injustice after today”, or “The people want the implementation of the Law.”
“This issue does not only concerns our families but the entire society,” said Mohammed Aman, Hassan’s cousin, in a speech cheered by the crowd.
According to the organizers, protests will continue every Thursday until the criminals are arrested and justice is done.
