Houthis Beef Up Security for Funeral ...

September 16, 2014
Amran, Yemen

Shia-Houthis buried seven of their followers who were killed in three explosions in the Houthi-run central province of Amran. The Houthis were forced to beef up security during the burial procession in fear of more explosions going off nearby. Family members of those killed say they will continue to sacrifice the lives of their loved ones until the Yemeni government steps down from power and there is a reinstatement of fuel subsidies. Houthis blame Yemen’s main opposition al-Islah party for the explosions that killed the seven protesters. The central province of Amran has been under the control of the Shia-Houthis since July after they defeated the tribal and army forces who were loyal to the government.

Sound Bite 1:

"We are out today, to burry the martyrs who were killed by the traitors who do not fear God. We ask them, "Who are you working for? Why are you doing those things? For the sake of whom are you committing these crimes? You have no ethics, no principles, and no conscience"."

Sound Bite 2:

"We address our message to ISIS, America, and Israel, and we tell them that all the explosives they are planting in the streets, and the attacks they are doing, do not scare us. We will keep going, our revolution comes from the revolution of al-Hussein. No amour of explosions can scare us, we will dedicate dozens of martyrs for the cause of our revolution and until justice is served".

The funeral procession moved around in the city with the participation of many national public figures. Participants carried the Palestinian flag.

After the funeral, clashes broke out between local civilians and Israeli forces in the area of Bab al-Zaweya. Young men threw rocks and empty bottles, and Israeli forces hit back with live bullets, rubber bullets, and sound bombs.

17-year-old Palestinian Mohammed al-Araj is laid to rest after being shot and killed during clashes with Israeli troops the previous night at the Qalandia checkpoint separating the West Bank from Jerusalem. Israeli security forces shot dead Mohammad and wounded 150 other people during the massive, 10 000 person protest in support of fellow Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The confrontation, and several smaller skirmishes throughout Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, came on Laylat al-Qadr, or Night of Destiny, when Muslims pray through the night as the holy month of Ramadan nears its end.

Istanbul, Turkey 

May 26, 2014

 

On 22 May 2014, 34-year-old Alevi-Turkish protester Ugur Kurt, cleaner and father of one, was killed by Turkish police. He was shot in the head by a stray bullet as the police dispersed a group of demonstrators expressing their grief over the Soma mining distaster that had taken the lives of 301 miners on 13 May 2014. The demonstrators were also protesting the shooting death of 15-year-old Berkin Elvan, killed by a police-fired gas canister during protests in March of that year. Kurt, for his part, was killed outside an Alevi worship sight in the impoverished neighborhood of Okmaydani in Istanbul. 

Following these events, the Chepesi Party, an unrecognized political party comprised mostly of young people, clashed with the police. Members of the party shouted "Katil" (Criminals) at authorities. On the morning of 23 May, a police bus was hit by a Molotov cocktail, causing panic among policemen and leading one of them to fire in the air to disperse protesters. As the day continued, clashes in the neighborhood continued. By nightfall, protesters were taking aim at security cameras. More than 38 were arrested during the night of 26 May.
