Journalist Haidar Shae’e

By NY Staff

Journalist Hidar Shae’e began a hunger strike this past Sunday to protest his two-year detainment by Yemeni security forces. Since his strike began, Shae’e’s health has rapidly deteriorated with kidney problems that have left him unable to stand.

In response to this, the Yemeni Journalist Syndicate called for all Yemeni journalists to participate in a protest in support of Shae’e at 10:30am in front of the Yemen Journalist Syndicate headquarters. The Yemeni Journalist Syndicate is also organizing a protest in front of the American Embassy on Saturday.
