عرض فيلم: ليس للكرامة جدران

On January 28th 2011 a white van raced down Qasr al Aini street. It drove through a crowd of people, doctor killing 14 of them.

It was quickly alleged that the car in question was a US diplomatic car. On February 8th the US Embassy issued a press release stating a “number” of their cars had been stolen and that they “deplore” the events. No other official statement has been made regarding the issue.

On March 8th 2012, no rx members of the Mosireen Collective were documenting the walls being erected around the Ministry of the Interior, mind when two cars were brought to our attention by residents of Abdel Meguid al Remaly street. We released this video report:

In it we show two vehicles, one with US diplomatic plates, with several bullet holes visible in it. The second vehicle, which looks similar to the van that ran people over on the 28th, has had it’s plates removed.

The land the cars are parked in is owned by the restaurant Groppi, but the residents informed us that it was regularly used as a parking lot by the Ministry of the Interior. It’s regular use stopped when the wall across the street was erected, but the two vans were left behind.

Since posting that video we have been sent further pieces of information. The following photos were taken by @Tom_el_Rumi on January 31st, 2011 on the corner of Falaky st. and Sheik Rehan st.

Another video on YouTube, dated February 9th 2011, shows the same GMC Savanna, on what we believe is Falaky street. It is now in considerably worse condition.

Here are the specifications for a Chevrolet Armoured Van:

The reduced window size of the van filmed by Mosireen, indicates that it is armour-plated:

So, the following questions have to be asked:

1. Although the Egyptian police were engaged in trying to suppress the protests of January 28th, how was it possible for, at least, four vans to be stolen from the US Embassy?

2. If those four vans were stolen, why did it they repeatedly re-appear around the Ministry of the Interior?

3. Why were two cars which clearly displayed bullet holes and diplomatic plates left just outside the Ministry of the Interior for over a year? Why did the US Embassy, which is approximately 600 metres away, not move to reclaim them?

4. Did the Ministry of the Interior have the regular use of US diplomatic vehicles?

Film is in Arabic with English Subtitles.

A documentary film set in Sana’a, Yemen, amidst the country’s current uprising. March 18, 2011 – the Friday of Karama (Dignity) marks a turning point in Yemen’s revolution. The tragic events that took place on this day – when pro-government snipers shot dead 53 protesters and injured a thousand more – shook the nation to its core and propelled hundreds of thousands more to flock to the square in solidarity with their fellow citizens. Military officials defected and joined the protests; members of parliament resigned and announced their support for the revolution; southern separatists, northern Houthi affiliates and apolitical Yemenis united; entire tribes set aside their weapons, made amends with rival tribesmen and pitched up tents in the square in support of one cause -– the liberation of Yemen from the shackles of a barbaric, oppressive regime. It gave the Yemeni nation a sense of responsibility towards their fellow citizens, particularly those who lost their lives on that fateful day.

Background – Change Square, as it is known today, is an arena in Yemen’s capital city Sana’a, where members of a heavily armed population set aside their weapons, and peacefully assembled to demand the fall of Ali Abdullah Saleh’s 33 autocratic rule. The protests began in February 2011, following the fall of Mubarak in Egypt, with a group of youth setting down a row of tents outside their university gates, vowing not to return home until their demands were met. Today, this ever-expanding tent-city has become the hub of hope and inspiration for thousands of Yemeni people. At one entrance, a banner greets people with “Welcome to the first kilometer of dignity.” For the first time in over 30 years, the barrier of fear is broken. Men and women, city-dwellers and tribesmen, unschooled and academics, rich and poor, young and old, all stand together, equal and resolute in the face of adversity.

‘Karama Has No Walls’ is set here amidst the country’s current uprising. The film illustrates the nature of the Yemeni revolution in stark contrast to the gross violations of human rights that took place on the Friday of Dignity. Through the lenses of two cameramen and the accounts of two fathers, the film retells the story of the people behind the statistics and news reports, encapsulating the tragic events of the day as they unfolded, from a prayer gathering into a barrage of bullets.
