10:35 pm
for example one scenario is what president hadi is proposing great now right he is backed by the saudis and he has sat that he will declare amnesty for anyone who stops fighting. do you think this promise could end the war. no of course not i'm calling president teddy. who is the visit to mature is a dent i'm calling to the legitimacy said government to open that dialogue to start to making because she did think with me the show for those who see with all parties of him and they have to find solutions for yemenis they have to stop cuckoo and also they have to stop the world. and when we are with dialogue it's now we are now in the. other stead after the death of charlie son so there
10:36 pm
is a lot of chances now to make peace in yemen so brizard into how did i end this it timothy new government should start a dialogue with the horses but also also poses no has to declare that they are already two hundred over the web as to them is it to me to also duty former president reached out to the saudis calling on them to lift the blockade on yemen with salis death now is there no more hope for the end of the locate. it's a very and this is this is the duty. of the saudi and emirates early and none some did and emits. and then they are a hell. of the visit to me to boot is a dent on restoring his authority to him and they can then that and they are they said that they are with the legitimate other thing with the president ahead but the
10:37 pm
kid this is the reality unfortunately the they are cuba in yemen they are to cuba gooding the. about the most important parts of this civility burson to open liberated. prevents is the good the bad the posts. i did the airports and also they are the curious thing i did the militia. you know the loyalty to then special to him or its they are call ition has had him and under blockade for two weirs already and the saudis say it is aimed at preventing arms smuggling to the who's who are opposed you any saying it is creating an imminent catastrophe with sit is running out of fuel clean water four hundred thousand children starving why are the saudis more afraid of arms smuggling that causing this huge despicable humanitarian tragedy that is through yemen
10:38 pm
now is suffering from a huge food from the worst humanitarian crisis is because of war because of who because of. that is a really good testified that is a real. suffering from yemeni people in many people all known suffering from disease from hanged good from teh mean from local phoenix to city local food to cation like off axis to. yes we are suffering from all this thing and this suffering should be staub should be and yes lou good to have this look at should be lifted now then this is that look then there are. one just then there's another question imagine the book aid is lifted right now imagine and the aid is flowing to those who need it but what if that also opens
10:39 pm
up routes to yemen for more weapons and yemen will be over flooded with even more military weapons. what is the solution that we can we are calling for so if saudi and immigrants really they are really with yemen and they are really want to yemen to go to seoul to explode limb and to face the truth and this is a very subverted the legitimate president they should alone i want to bridget intended to return to yemen to rule yemen. inside the city been better sent provin says that is liberated that is very important so president had to do with the army can make you know this is the solution all on controlling you know i would visit that you know that is that is that how you. sent received phone.
10:40 pm
we did flow with the hoses and with all you know grooves it's very important the most important thing now is to hand to do with drove the weavers from militia so we should as him and these help others were selves we should solve our problems and we can do let me i mean how can you solve your own problems how can you solve you your own problems as you have a nice if you're under a bloke eight and you're always three can't solve problems fully by yourself because a lot of pen's of saudi arabia right now and i know you're calling for this look a to do list it missed me this did it must be lifted but my question is and my question is lifted oh do you think saudis will listen to your calling for the leave to other. you know public speakers and women and men who are actually for peace are also calling on saudis to la louve to split hates us and is calling on the saudis to lift blockade other humanitarian organizations are actually calling on the
10:41 pm
saudis to lift the blockade they're not listening to anyone. what dale what dialogue are you talking about as there is no unfortunately there is no enough brush or. four years old and in merits and did the international community should do that they international community should as somebody why do they do it do like that i did not it's just the statements they've made some statements the sending and maybe you are asking me about the bouquet that is led by saudi and in it but you don't ask me about the blockade that is by the by this is backwards from here on they are sense to so that fourteen they are on makes easy in being in being in big government at this mission and does so now we are really yemeni people suffered from to locate internal groups good little kids think there is a special but then to buy suburb i have been the show for jose and. hold the book
10:42 pm
at the head by by so did and in minutes and this one took a look at should be lifted not one i would presume to mount under. house arrest in . his in the house like a house and this is why our bryza didn't how did didn't return to london why did its limits city why is he killed during the most important. islands the parts of the airports in the south and invincibility percent of fear many liberated country his wife why do they carry it to me she does. why so many of them as they call the enemy now i called i don't. i don't call this in they had to buy soda and in minutes they should lift our bridges to return to identify and to rule and then from yemen. ok total goals how are we going to take
10:43 pm
a shot of that great right now and it worked and we're going to take a short break right now if you don't mind and when we're back we'll continue talking about this we'll continue talking to tom cole carr manet yet many political activists who won the nobel peace prize and we'll talk more about the tragedy and reveling in the country state change.
10:44 pm
the parting of ways european leaders talk of a future without the u.s. what is in store for the transatlantic alliance and much much more on this edition of. john mccain his republican cohorts like the bush family and others they will break cozy with ken lay financed the bush campaign so the bush presidency . when they got caught committing massive fraud on the same scale as the savings along crisis they machinery was already in place thanks to john. mccain is a bag man for wall street for decades yeah too bad all those guys out there make them all at the expense of the democracy slash economy of the united states which is the senate right.
10:45 pm
now a bad way to tell a polka ramana a yemeni activist and the nobel peace prize winner talking about the civil war and humanitarian catastrophe and as a country. you are a noble peace prize laureate you got the prize for your role in the twenty eleven revolution in yemen five years have passed and the revolution hasn't brought any peace your country is being devastated by war a power struggle which all started five years ago was it all worth it.
10:46 pm
it's worth it absolutely yeah many people started a peaceful a great peaceful revolution in two thousand and eleven millions of fear many people left their weapons more than civility million piece of wood bins in their houses and went to the street with roses in front of all the violent or highly southern. forces so yemeni people did a great work on stop listening to a new country based on democracy based on human rights based on doing the floor we did the great work in the transitional period we gathered only in many parties even with the militia for truth even with that without any solace allianz in one table and we did a great national dialogue outcomes and we wrote a great draft of consideration we were just steps forward making putting this constitution for a fair and then but the cool have bent the killers have been so the coup that kill
10:47 pm
us the order isn't the result of the peaceful revolution is the result of the counter revolution and it is the result of conflict that is you know conflict so it is not our fault but still we are in our revolution and we will you know that continue i wonder where and dream for change and we will when absolutely now well you have blamed the hearses for this crisis. amongst others who are and they're fighting for one side in this yemeni conflict but you also speaking against the saudis who are fighting there who says for the sake of president hadi is there anyone inside yemen you would want to work with. do you think that yemen is divided between a group backed by iran or by somebody and and. it's no. you know many people they have they are they they are their own band their own
10:48 pm
district easy they own this floated someone to see if i want to continue for do want to see if i want to continue for a piece of foam what it can to be for human to put down the mint if i want them to so it is not. it is not under chose to be with this part to read that's one of the cuban exe exiled from the who's the occupied part of the country but what's stopping you from going back to the areas not controlled by them after all you've sat yemenis not just divided between a part back with iran and another part that's backed by saudis it's all about yemeni people so why don't you go back. as i told you seventy per cent of the liberated. prevents is human from the brazilian the booted from the coup led by horses and the former president allison that is controlled by saudi and interests and i am against them and they are creating militias and that.
10:49 pm
prevents is and the other i'm sure if i were will return to to that of a privilege says it's the said that they are. the same things like the militia for one thing both of them are the same both of them they don't want my country to have to be democrats what both of them they don't are our peaceful revolution thirty when. and if you also there is this other progress is that it isn't. with. is it with who sees and also with the saudi and iran like for example murder but unfortunately i will not be able to go there because there is no plane that's can make me you know free on my movement outside yemen for pressure and for yemeni freedom and for telling the world about our you know issue tackle i've seen you
10:50 pm
give many speeches and receive honorary doctorates in the west so it's good to see the western audience informed about the situation how exactly are you helping the yemenis themselves right now i mean do you have contacts on the ground through whom you can do something for the people. yes of course you know i yes i am in exile now but the still i am in the m. and a lot of people nam and i'm working with inside yemen everywhere in yemen the people is there the peaceful people that have been shooting people is tell them the people who are against the cube ational few minutes and so he is there and the people who are against the cool of militia for who see the previous signal. bryza that allison is there i am with them inside and i am with them outside and the most important thing that i carry the hope and the dream of people for making
10:51 pm
peace for my cancer now back in twenty eleven you spoke out against the out for interfering in yemen's affairs but according to a cable leak released by wiki leaks you secretly arrange meetings with a saudi official back then and ask for help i wanted to ask you directly is a true yeah of course through of course through i don't and it's true about that we can this didn't lead to said that i also visited the russian embassy and also i visit that i want to get in to see and i visited with british embassy french embassy to the embassy kuwaiti embassy on monday mysie i visited all the embassies in the security council in the new york calling them to see to the yemen and to to know a lot about in yemen peaceful revolution and to have the many people on facing the idea of the last sunday and to listen to
10:52 pm
a number that you also said that the leaders of the saudi coalition will be prosecuted for the crimes stay committed in yemen how do you imagine that happening when the coalition is backed by arab states like you said and that they're also backed by their western allies so who will prosecute saudis. i call for the international justice to follow all those raters of the crimes against humanity all over the world and so i call the international criminal court to follow all those perpetrators against you know human rights. the one who are committed to the crimes against humanity so yes i'm i'm calling international theater criminal court to do its work and unfortunately the international community didn't do its work its duty is to responsibility.
10:53 pm
with those people who suffered from their dictators from their rulers who are suffer from the massacres not just in yemen in yemen in syria in myanmar in every really any where around the world as one coalition is fighting a rebellion and the rebellion itself is fighting its own allies at the same time al-qaeda has been given an opportunity to take advantage of the chaos there is yet and then in your opinion risk falling to the jihadi s. while it's busy fighting al qaeda and any terrorist group if you want to really to face of them to fight them it is not just came by the security solution not just done by the rebels there is another solution the other solution is supporting democracy. supporting peaceful movements supporting the development supporting the justice that is very important so in yemen people are you know
10:54 pm
facing all this is extremism extremists feeble during down his son experience or if they will appear you know this time but also there is another solution for that how can we face them remember sophy why. and we made i want peaceful revolution in two thousand and eleven during two years of peaceful miss a few years that there wasn't once but almost died so we give the alternative which is peaceful struggle this whole movement the struggle of don't behave to read the small strokes of the of it says citizen the being set up. in front of the voice of peaceful people a voice of chanting the blows of peaceful sacrifice for freedom. do you think there should be a military intervention in your country can un peacekeeping mission save the day.
10:55 pm
of course no of course no i'm calling. i'm calling god willing yemenis to start solving their issue by themselves and yemenis against this wall and eyes as i said before with the how can we stop that's the thing and other things that is good of coalition saudi and images showed that it would be a shame in yemen and they have to let's i want president to return to yemen and that you will help me and many. to to to to build their country without in the. armed intervention of our calls thank you so much for this emotional interview i wish you all the best all the best of luck in all your future endeavors and above all i wish peace for yemen for your beloved country thank you very much for being with us we're talking to tell a whole karma on your many political activists and nobel peace prize laureates
