They denounced the maritime piracy of the aggression on fuel ships and the continuous violations of international and humanitarian laws.

It pointed to the importance of the vigils to expose the United Nations to the world about the crimes committed against the Yemeni people.It stressed the continuation of sit-ins and vigils until the legitimate demands of the Yemeni people are achieved, mainly is the release of fuel ships and lifting the siege.
The participants called on the free people of the world, the international community, unions, human rights and civil organizations, and local and international mass federations to carry out their duty of solidarity with the Yemeni people and their legitimate demands, and to put pressure on the coalition of aggression to lift the siege and allow the entry of fuel ships.
The statement explained that the forces of the aggression are still holding five oil ships, including a ship loaded with diesel and four ships loaded with a quantity of (116,236) tons of gasoline and diesel for varying periods, which amounted to more than six months of sea piracy for the currently detained ships.
