Yemen marks 3rd anniversary of the Friday of dignity massacre

Today, Yemen marks the 3rd anniversary of the Friday of dignity massacre, and Yemen has still never got its dignity. Kudos to the martyrs!

"Three years have passed since the ‘Friday of Dignity’ killings and the Yemeni authorities have yet to carry out a credible investigation or deliver justice. Promises that an independent commission of inquiry would be set up by President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi remain unfulfilled. By dragging their feet over ensuring a full and impartial investigation into these deaths, Yemen’s authorities are sending a disturbing message that justice and accountability are not a priority for them." -Amnesty
