September 21st Revolution … Epic of Liberation, Independence
The flame of the sixth anniversary of the September 21st revolution will be lit, Today, on Sunday, marking the entry of the seventh year of the revolution, which came as an urgent necessity for liberation, independence, and salvation from guardianship, dependence, and mercenarism.
The importance of celebrating the sixth anniversary of the September 21st revolution as it came in a historic turning point in the life of the Yemeni people who said its word after decades of dependency, subordination, and corruption in which the opportunities for building the state, achieving security and building the economy have been wasted.
The September 21st revolution represented a starting point to stop dangerous conspiracies that Yemen was exposed to after Yemen reached a state of seizing its political decision-making.
The revolution marked an important turning point in the contemporary history of Yemen, as Yemenis ended the domination, subordination, and external guardianship, including correcting the situation due to corruption, injustice, exclusion, marginalization, and monopolizing wealth.
The importance of the popular revolution is that it also transferred the Yemeni people from a situation in which the people were persecuted by the enemies into a situation that made Yemen influential in the course of events and an effective force in the region and the world.
The September 21st revolution has enshrined the concept of true partnership, and won the responsible and effective action of all components of the Yemeni people, despite the American and Saudi conspiracy and the threats posed by the Security Council.
The Yemeni people were able to get out of guardianship and dependence and imposed their will according to the wisely of revolutionary leadership.
In this regard, the leader of the revolution Sayyed Abdulmalik Badr al-Din al-Houthi said in one of his speeches, “One of the first, most important and greatest achievements of the revolution is the liberation of the Yemeni people from external guardianship and the restoration of their right to independence, sovereignty, and freedom.
He pointed out that the problem of colonial powers and arrogance and their agents in the region is with Yemen not for nothing, but because of its refusal to submission and subordination, the revolution leader said.
Al-Houthi added that those powers begrudged Yemen to be independent in its political decision and in its legitimate right to manage its affairs away from external interferences.
The leader of the revolution stressed that the great popular movement and its momentum made the September 21st revolution a pure revolution achieved with the participation of the people and the masses of all categories and components.
He pointed out that the sacrifice, patience, and steadfastness of the Yemeni people resulted in victory, strength, and cohesion in the face of challenges, most notably confronting the forces of aggression and its mercenaries.
For this part, the President of the Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat said in one of his speeches that “the September 21 revolution represented the option that befits the Greater Yemen, even if the price was high, but it is a choice of necessity and a courageous correction, with the will of a people, it decided to be free from all forms of weakness and dependency and to give up the burden on external domination”.
Al-Mashat indicated that the September 21st revolution from the first day imposed the values of tolerance, amnesty, and preferred the language of peace, becoming the first revolution in history to discuss with its opponents and did not put gallows.
The President clarified that the September 21st revolution came to create a new climate filled with tolerance and coexistence and to establish the values of joint work to build a new Yemen free from corruption, tyranny, injustice, terrorism, and external domination, and all its children would participate in its construction and will be enjoyed in its wealth.
He said, “Each stage has its own criteria and standards, and therefore those who evaluate the stage of the brutal war in that we are living in accordance with the standards and requirements of well-being and prosperity and other measures of the natural or ordinary stages are mistaken, but to ensure success in these are measured by the criteria of patience, steadfastness, sacrifice, giving, redemption and steadfastness in fighting foreign invaders, protecting its people and defending Yemen’s institutions.”
Despite the troubles and challenges that the Yemeni people face during the current stage in light of the continued aggression and blockade and the continued detention of oil derivative ships by the countries of the aggression coalition, this did not prevent the Yemenis from celebrating the sixth anniversary of the September 21st Revolution in conjunction with victories on various fronts, the last of which was the defeat al-Qaeda and ISIS in Bayda province.
The celebration of this national occasion represents the anniversary of a moral, political, military, and security victory, a drive to confront the aggression, and an effective step to thwart its plans to try to return Yemen to subordination, tutelage, or to control over its decision and its enslavement.
The Prime Minister in the National Salvation Government Dr. Abdulaziz Saleh bin Habtoor considered what the country is currently going through are exceptional moments in every sense of the word in light of the aggression and blockade it is facing.
He emphasized that the September 21st revolution came to develop the paths of the revolution of September 26th and October 14th and it bore a great responsibility towards the homeland and its people, pointing to the tolerance that has been characterized by the September 21st revolution since its inception because it is important for any revolution to accommodate everyone in order to endure and to go on.
So, the September 21st revolution will remain a bright spot that stems from the correctness of vision, unity of purpose, the wisdom of leadership, and the lining up the people to achieve its goals.
