Mass protests against economic misery hit Abyan

Mass protests against economic misery hit Abyan

Massive protests  held on Saturday in Al-Mahfad district of Abyan province, south of Yemen, to denounce the economic deterioration.

Dozens of protesters roamed the streets of the district, chanting slogans rejecting the high cost of living and continuing the deterioration of the price of the Yemeni riyal against foreign currencies.

The participants considered that the economic collapse is systematic and deliberate by the Saudi-led coalition and the exiled Hadi government for starving the Yemeni people.

They demanded to quickly stop the collapse of the value of the riyal and reduce major corruption and looting of financial revenues.

The occupied southern provinces are witnessing a widespread popular movement against the irresponsible practices of Hadi government by continuing to print the currency without a cash cover, which has caused the collapse of the economy.
