Protests are continuing in Yemen for the 23rd day, escalating their calls for the end of the regime. The government is under mounting pressure because of the expansion and escalation of the protests and the growing number of resignations that are occurring from with its ranks.
Seven university professors in Taiz announced their resignation from the ruling party on the 7th of March 2011, the same university where thirteen professors resigned earlier from the GPC and joined the youth in the square in their call for the resignation of President Saleh.
The squares in many Yemeni cities have seen the presence of the highest percentage of demonstrators and protesters, with millions calling for the fall of the regime.
Hardly a day passes without a declaration of support for the revolution, with more powers, tribal, civil and political, demanding the departure of President Saleh and his regime. 13 Parliament members have announced their resignation from the GPC (ruling party) because of what they called ‘the failure of the current regime.’
Last week famous and well known tribal leaders came to Change Square in Sana’a announcing their resignation from the party and declaring their support for the protesters. The final important resignation was the resignation of the deputy Minister of Youth in front of the protestors in Sana’a.
In this chaotic situation, with support for the protesters increasing, from Sana’a to Taiz to Aden calling with one voice ‘the people want the fall of the regime,’ one big question arises: whether the current regime will lose all its political and tribal allies in a record time.
