January 27 2003

In a session held last week, the Yemeni parliament called upon Yemeni people to stage peaceful demonstrations against the US-led war to attack Iraq. Parliament members strongly criticizes the US military buildup in the region and said in a statement that the threat of attacking Iraq confirms that there is a plan to change the political map in the Arabia Peninsula so as to strengthen ‘Zionist’ control of the region. It also asked demanded that the government denounces any strike against Iraq and the offensive actions committed against the Palestinian people.
As the US seems committed to go for a war against Iraq, it is expected that many massive rallies and protests would take place in the coming days in Yemen and other Arab countries.
