22 February 2014: Peaceful protest in Mahra
Rare protests took place today in Yemen's extensive Mahra governorate. The protests were peaceful and well organised. Tribesmen came out in droves to speak out against Mahra being bundled into a single region under neighbouring Hadramawt. Historical grievances, including the forcible takeover of Mahra in 1967 by invading forces coming from Hadramawt as well as Hadramawt's increasing incursion in Mahri lands, makes this proposed region a highly emotive issue in Mahra. Mahra is not - at this point - protesting against a federal solution per se, but it will not accept being subsumed by Hadramawt.
