Get Ready, Yemen's About To Have Its Own "Day Of Rage" Tomorrow

Yemen Riots

Yemen is prepping for its own “Day of Rage” tomorrow which will see the country’s opposition protest against the rule of its president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, according to RFI.

Saleh announced today that he would step down in 2013, after 30 years of rule. That hasn’t stopped protestors plans for another big event, however.

The day’s events are a continuation of what has been weeks of protests in the country’s capital of Sanaa. The protests are partially blamed on the rise in food prices and high unemployment rate, a staggering 40%.

Egypt had its own “day of rage” on the 25th of January.
