2,000 Yemeni teachers protest against arrear of wages

Around 2,000 Yemeni teachers marched on Sunday from Sanaa University in the capital, where tens of thousands of anti-government protesters have been camping for weeks, to the cabinet building in downtown to protest against arrear of wages.

The rally marched peacefully as the demonstrators carried the Yemeni national flags and placards, reading “Government and its ministers are servants of people, not instruments of repressing and confiscating others rights.”

“We took part in this march to protest against either suspending or delaying paying our salaries,” teacher Naif Muslih told Xinhua.

Earlier the week, chief of the Yemeni Teachers Syndicate Fuad Dahabh threatened to stage a rally to march forward to the building of the cabinet and set up tents for camping there until the cabinet meets their demands.
