Yemen Youth Fight For Democracy

A new generation is being born in Yemen of young people who wish to put an end to historic inertia and government corruption in order to move their nation into the 21st century. About thirty students from three universities released a document urging young people to unite and fight to end corruption in their nation. The Human Rights Information and Training Center(HRITC) worked with young college students in order to help them develop programs to reform Yemen society. The goal of the training center is to create a new generation of youth. “When we create such youth, they themselves will spread awareness among people in their districts and the environments they live in.”

The document focuses on political, social, and police corruption in Yemen. Young people intend to spread out in their nation offering workshops to all segments of the population.
