Differences to American Revolution
  • Many youth are at the heart of the revolution in Yemen
  • Many religious reasons
  • Within the same country, not trying to gain independence
  • Trying to topple one regime, not a whole country’s power over them
  • Yemenis won’t use arms (weapons)
where the country is going
Where the country is going…
  • I believe that the revolutionaries will win out. However, in order to do this they will need support and help from the UN and/or other countries. I think that Saleh will be forced from power and a new government will eventually be set up
