Funny Yet Sad: Yemeni’s Protest UN Blacklisting of Saudi Victims


Yemenis have roundly denounced UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s decision to add the Ansarullah resistance movement to its annual blacklist of parties violating children’s rights, describing the measure as “foolish.”

A large number of children on Saturday demonstrated in northwestern city of Sa’ada, slamming the UN move to blacklist the popular group, while removing Saudi Arabia, which is responsible for the death and maiming of thousands of Yemeni children.

“We call the UN decision to accuse the Yemenis of killing themselves, whilst acquitting the Saudi-led coalition ‘foolish’ and dismiss the step. Whatever statement the body puts out, it would be of no significance to us anymore,” they said in a final communiqué.

“We consider the United Nations as an accomplice in all crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition of aggressors against Yemen. Indeed, it is legitimizing the [military] alliance,” they added.

“Yemeni children will continue their education even on the ruins of their schools. No one can hide the truth from us and no one can mislead us. We know who is killing us as well as our parents and siblings, is displacing us and starving hungry.”

Last week, Ansarullah’s political bureau announced in a statement that “Guterres’s move produced convincing proof that the UN is simply a worthless platform exploited by major powers to distort facts and confiscate the rights of oppressed nations.”

“The United Nations would better remain neutral, and not act as a mouthpiece for the coalition of aggressors and repeat their nonsense and ridiculous statements,” it noted.

Ansarullah’s inclusion in the blacklist of states and groups that violate children’s rights is “unjust, invalid and disconnected from real-world facts”, the statement said.

“The United Nations severed its ties with our nation and sided with the aggressor coalition by such a classification,” it added.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing Ansarullah.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

The Saudi-led military aggression has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. The Saudi war has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the country.

  1. It is really interesting to find out how this got past Russia and China at the UN. Always 2 sides to a story. Anyone knows?

  2. If that speaking child is any indication of Arabic youth born and raised under a constant threat of terror and destruction, death and injustice, then it’s only a matter of time before Israel will not have the luxury of choosing the place or the time of its battles.
    The writing is on the wall.

  3. Shame on UN that has become a toy in the hands of lobby groups. We thought US Senate was a joke this is worse.
