After the massive success of the #ShameOnReuters campaign on twitter, headed by @Dory_Eryani (Hend) and @NajlaMo with the help of many like @almuraisy @crazyyafi @NoonArabia @ichamza @Dima_Khatib @SultanAlQassemi @AswatF24 and many more..
Yemeni tweeps, supporters, activists have connected through twitter and are determined to take on the GCC deal starting with the hashtag #No2GCCdeal.
The frustration of a constant deal reshaped many times for the benefit of Ali Abdullah Saleh has now become a campaign; to educate the world, to gain support and to get people to understand why Yemenis rightfully are against a GCC deal. I wanted to show you the many who oppose the GCC deal and why through tweets.
RT @Ronaldo_Yemen: A campaign has started under hashtag #No2GCCdeal protesting against the laughable #GCC deal which has caused #Yemen a lot of troubles. – @NasserMaweri
#No2GCCdeal because there’s a big big difference between ink of the deal & blood of the martyrs. #Yemen – @almuraisy
Our ppl said NO 2 a deal giving immunity from prosecution 4 those who committed crimes against humanity! That’s y we say #No2GCCdeal #Yemen – Yemen4Change
The #GCC deal signing saga gave the regime a life to kill the people. #SupportYemen and say #No2GCCdeal – @NoonArabia
The power of the people is much stronger than the people in power #No2GCCdeal #Yemen – @Nadaa2124
No immunity to murderers #No2GCCdeal This deal is based on protecting all Arab tyrants #Yemen – @brrhom
There has to be a bit of humor..
#No2GCCdeal #No2GCCdeal Because it only works for #Saleh & betrays the 25 million other #Yemenis – @crazyyafai
The #GCC Plan is #saleh’s license to stall and kill and stall and kill some more!! #No2GCCdeal #supportYemen and the #Yemeni ppl’s demands!! – @ameerah1yemenia
MT @shabadel: #No2GCCdeal because it’s a treason to the blood of the martyrs by giving #Saleh immunity from fair #trial. #ICC #Yemen – @NoonArabia
#No2GCCdeal – because murderous dictators should not be able to get away with killing thier own people while lying to the rest of the world. – @IMTomG
#No2GCCdeal because other dictators would want immunity as well, all tyrants have to be responsible for their actions – @YemenFreeVoice
RT @NoonArabia: Wise words and a must MT @RealistChannel: Revolutionaries must stick together because regimes do. #Yemen #Egypt #Syria #Bahrain #No2GCCdeal – @masrAllahma3aky
While I tweeted: #No2GCCdeal because it’s an insult to the Yemenis who have endured 33 years of corruption, hardship & increasing levels of poverty #Yemen
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me 3, 4, 5 times? We’re all freakin idiots #No2GCCdeal – @abubakrabdullah
As you can see most feel that the people of Yemen have given many chances to Saleh and have endured 33 years of his reign. Some see it as completely ridiculous that Saleh and his regime continue to murder people and yet they have to compromise. Blogger and tweeter @Noon_arabia has written explaining why Saleh is not trusted and her thoughts on the GCC deal read it Here
This was my little way to capture why people are opposing the GCC deal..I leave you with the words of a victim of the regime Maryam Najeeb: “Saleh’s forces were shelling the hospital, people were scared and some were badly injured.. where is humanity? Where is human rights? Even animals have rights to live, but we don’t?
Don’t forget to support the campaign – be creative and use the hashtag #No2GCCdeal you can also support by joining and sharing the FB Page
