The Coordination Council for Retired and Demobilised Southerners has on Tuesday vowed to ignite a “revolution of the hungry” against Hadi’s government if its demands were not met.
The Council called in a statement for the restructuring of the armed factions in Aden.
The Council also gave the new Hadi government two weeks to implement its demands, as represented by the payment of 6-month salaries, in addition to the previous years 2016 and 2017, in addition to the speed of developing radical solutions to the problems faced by demobilised former military personnel.
Since 2015, the Coordination Council for Retired and Demobilised Southerners has been leading a movement against the “Hadi government”, in an attempt to improve the status of its members, which includes hundreds of officers and personnel laid off since the 1994 Yemeni Civil War.
It is noteworthy that the southern Yemeni provinces are witnessing a popular movement against the economic decline and the rise in food prices.
