People of Aden and Hadramout cities organized a huge demonstrations to show reconciliation and tolerance; calling the day "Reconciliation Day".
What I found interesting was how media in Yemen dealt with this event. News were divided. Mainly, I found conflicting media contents about the event. One media outlet say; people of south assured unity (read here), another say they assured independence (read here). The political affiliation of the news website has a lot to do with that. The first is a northern-affliated. The latter is souther-affliated. Hence, it's absolutely important to read between the lines.
This is a clip from the demonstartion in Aden city
And this is from al-Mukala city, Hadramout
The crowd were huge.
And this is ironic! The man with the Che Guevara t-shirt is Ali al-Fathli. He is one of the influential leaders of al-Qaeda or Ansar al-Sharia in Abyan Ciy.
He joined the demonstration after, reportedly, he was kicked out of Abyan by the security forces.
