Nasser Arrabyee: The Opposition in Yemen

Today March 2nd, I spoke with Nasser Arrabyee, a Yemeni journalist who writes for alahram newspaper in Cairo as well as several other publications across the Middle East and America. He has been following the protests in his home country that took an interesting turn yesterday when Sheikh Abd al-Majed al-Zandani, one of the founders of the opposition movement, Islah, proposed several points to the ruling government to begin bipartisan negotiations. The opposition is waiting for a reply to these points from the Yemeni president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. The protesters demanded his ouster yesterday in a proclaimed "Day of Rage." Nasser previously shared his insights on CrossTalk when the Yemeni protests first erupted in the beginning of February.
