Yemenis Organize a Tweets Campaign for the Most Alien-Looking Place on Earth: Socotra
The Yemeni island of Socotra has been considered to be one of the most bizarre and alien-looking places on earth.
Recently during the ongoing conflict in Yemen, the UAE decided to lease Socotra from the Saudi-backed ousted Yemeni president, Hadi, for nearly a hundred years.
The Yemeni people and a number of foreign activists responded by creating a tweets campaign to reach the world on the popular social network.
The campaign is to begin today Saturday, May 6th, at 8:00 pm, Sana’a time.
The tweets bank containing “ready to post” tweets will be available as soon as the incident starts for those interested in participating.
Moreover, the “Save Socotra International Team” created an online petition requesting support from signers all over the world in the below link: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/UNESCO_and_the_UNITED_NATIONS_UNESCO_UN_HELP_US_SAVE_SOCOTRA_YEMEN_FROM_UAE_INTERVENTION_DAMAGES/?feZivgb
