It really bugs me that injustice still happens in so many places in the world. And that no one knows apart from the sides involved. Or the bad guys give us a distorted picture of events.

They have forced Yemeni government to help them and have also got help from the American army. The clashes have continued for roughly four months now but Yemeni farmers have managed to resist so far. By the way, there is another struggle taking place in the South.
