Guerilla Journalism: a Yemeni revolution

May 11, 2011

Yemen’s revolution has been a slow burning one. For three months now, Yemen’s youthful protesters have been hounding their President, Ali Abdullah Saleh. But as each day goes by and Saleh continues to cling to power, they’re only growing stronger and better organised. This video made by young Yemeni film-maker Sarah Ishaq profiles five young Yemeni activists: a blogger, videographer, actor, social networker and a writer. Incredible stuff.

Follow them:

The blogger – Atiaf – @womanfromyemen

The videographer – Hamza Shargabi – @ichamza

The writer – Shatha Harazi – @ShathaAlHarazi

The social networker – Alaa Jarban – @AlaaAjJarbaa
