A civil disobedience and protests in Aden demand a halt to the collapse of the local currency

The city of Aden, the interim capital of the southern part of the country, is witnessing Sunday a massive civil disobedience and widespread demonstrations in the neighborhoods of Krater and Mu’alla, protesting the collapse of the local currency price and rising prices.

Eyewitnesses told Almasdar online that the shops were completely closed in Mu’alla and Kriter, and that the state of rebellion extends to the rest of the city, while protesters raised slogans demanding the overthrow of the Yemeni government.

They added that angry protesters closed dozens of major streets in the city and burnt tires.

Residents of the city are demanding that the Yemeni government and the central Bank of Yemen intervene to save the Yemeni riyal, which is at record levels, and the price of the one dollar in Aden to 640 riyals.

The collapse of the dollar was accompanied by a significant rise in the price of food commodities, while wholesalers were stopped selling.
