المملكة العربية السعودية وحرب الشرعية في اليمن

[

 في 21 نيسان\إبريل، 2015 أعلن التحالف العسكري للدول العربية الذي تقوده السعودية أن "عملية عاصفة الحزم"، الحملة العسكرية ضد اليمن التي شُنّتْ في 25 آذار\مارس، دخلت في طور جديد أكثر سلمية، تحت مسمى "إعادة الأمل". بعد ذلك بوقت قصير، ألقى الرئيس اليمني عبد ربه منصور هادي خطابه الأول للأمة من منفاه في المملكة العربية السعودية، مكرراً الكثير من التهم والإنذارات نفسها ضد الحوثيين. وقد استُؤنف القصف بعد ساعات فقط من إعلان التحالف، وبعد أكثر من أسبوع، لم يُظهر أي إشارات تباطؤ. ويبدو أن القليل قد تغيّر باستثناء إطلاق تسمية جديدة على الحرب لكن ما أكده هذا الطور الجديد هو أن أياً من المحاولات السعودية "لإحلال السلام" في اليمن (سواء خلف قناع ...

واقع الكتاب في اليمن

[

في حوار أجراه معه عبد الغني القرني ونُشر في موقع"الجزيرة نت" قال رئيس اتحاد الناشرين اليمنيين محمد عبد الله الآنسي إن الكتاب اليمني والورقي منه بالذات ما يزال حيا يرزق، ولا زال جليساً يُؤنس، وليس أدل على ذلك من إقبال الناس على اقتنائه في معارض الكتاب التي تقام في فترات ومدن مختلفة، وهو حاضر في المشهد الثقافي بقوة تأليفاً، ونشراً، وتوزيعاً، لكن غياب القانون الذي ينظم صناعة الكتاب في أطواره المختلفة يخلق إشكالات عدة، فقانون حماية الحقوق الفكرية الموجود الآن ليس كافياً، ناهيكَ عن أن هذا القانون لا يجد من يطبقه على أرض الواقع، نافيا أن تكون الوسائط التكنولوجية قد ألغت دور الكتاب الورقي. معرض القاهرة بدأ في جو من الحيطة والحدز قال كمال القاضي في مقال نشر في جريدة ...

تقرير خاص: اليمن: الصحفيون والمدافعون عن حقوق الإنسان معرضون للخطر أثناء الحرب

[

أصدر مجلس الأمن التابع للأمم المتحدة، في نيسان، قراراً يدعو لاستئناف سريع لمحادثات السلام ووضع حد للعنف في اليمن. ومع ذلك تواصل القتال في جميع أنحاء البلاد مع استمرار الغارات الجوية السعودية التي تستهدف قوات الحوثيين خلال الشهر الماضي والتي يدفع ثمنها المدنيون، وكذلك فإن القوات الحوثية تستهدف الأشخاص أو المجموعات التي تعمل ضدها بما في ذلك التحالف الذي تقوده السعودية. وفي الوقت الذي وعدت فيه المملكة العربية السعودية هذا الأسبوع  بإنهاء حملة القصف التي خلفت 1000 قتيل على الأقل وآلاف الجرحى والمشردين، فان الأمرلم ينته بتسوية سلمية بعد. ذلك أن المستشار الخاص للأمين العام للأمم المتحدة حول اليمن، جمال بن عمر، قد استقال من منصبه وصار وصول المساعدات ...

Yemen at Crossroads: An Interview with Activist Hisham Al-Omeisy

[photo by Collin Anderson via Flikr Creative Commons]

Yemen has grabbed the world's attention as the country’s political crisis appears to have been deepened with the Saudi-led military intervention. According to The Guardian and other news organizations, the U.S. is providing “logistical and intelligence support” to the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthi forces in Yemen. In the absence of independent on-the-ground reporting by the major media outlets on the turmoil in Yemen, social media platforms are once again providing the much needed platform for activists in the country to post images, express their views, and raise their concerns about the fate of their country. Soon after the bombing began, Yemeni activist ...
