Dear Mr. Ambassador

Your Excellency

I am one of the Yemeni people who cares greatly about the current situation in the YEMEN... In this respect and after having been informed that you are personally trying to intermediate between the parties involve on this issue together with the European Ambassadors in order to find a workable plan to solve the current problems, I would like to express to you my opinion that is also shared by many in Yemen... we are expressing this thought every week with millions of other people, refusing the idea of violent for change...

The movement carried out by the oppositions, supposedly also by the young generation, is day after day showing that it is conducting aggressive approaches in provoking the police and creating an environment that does not support a democratic and peaceful approach... but support rather the creation of attractive situations for the media, by presenting blood and aggression that media is interested to report...

It is clear to see that the miss-order that is being created by these manifestos does not reflect a modern and democratically way of asking for change...

The change is surely a required element to build the future,,, since without change nothing can be carried out... So no one is against changing for the better,,, however without jeopardizing what was already constructed ... and without creating chaos that will allow terrorism and instability to rise causing further problems and set back to the country...

The change should be adopted with respecting the law that all Yemenis have a strong believe in and are very good laws but that need to be administrated and managed in proper way to ensure proper implementation...

Hence no request for change should be adopted in violating the law and the law of order... This is currently not the case, as these manifestation and participants have proved bad intention through provoking all persons including the living persons in the quarters of these manifestation or even during their walks by carrying guns and weapons and calling for peace??... Moreover, they have embarrassed the joining of many of the corrupted well known figures, and have received them to join with their forces... and is this the change that is needed??? these do not represent the majority of people or even the idea/hopes of the people...

Many of us feel the same,,, We need the change to be through organized elections.. and not through violence or ideas of revenge... it has to be in accordance with the law and the order to ensure that it is carried in a proper environment..

Hence there is no other peaceful way but to go for early elections, while the president and his family will not participate, and open the door for other candidates with respect to their qualifications... The question of conditioning these election of having the current president leave, is also NOT in line with the law.... does that mean that the corrupted persons from the opposition must leave as well??? or even any other lobbying groups that are proven to be corrupted??... This condition being requested repeatedly is just not in line with the logic or even with the law, since there are no limit to such claims.....However these elections must move on and the people can decide on their own... but to push out the current government and leadership out of the door just because we want to... and go about taking a revenge instead of a constructive change will just lead no where and to more issues and escalations..

Above is to express some of the feelings of many that do not support an unlawful approach to solve the problem in Yemen,,, we hope that with respect to your level of diplomacy this can be observed and defended to avoid violence in our lovely country and to represent our voices and feelings to support our rising democracy system.. and a peaceful constructive change that will be embraced and defended by the people...
