Sana'a, May 14 ) The organization Women Journalists Without Chains revealed that strikes against freedom of expression and opinion have increased, especially in the first quarter of 2008.

There is approximately one violation per day against freedom of expression, said the organization.

The organization's statement came during one of the weekly strikes that the organization holds at the Tahrir – or “freedom”” – square in the front of the Cabinet's office and the media ministry.

The journalists who attended the strike criticized the continued imprisonment of journalist Mohamemed Al-Magaleh
