Southern Movement leader Hassan Baoum met around mid-day 17 September southern movement activists at Martyr camp in Wadi Hadhramawt. He was accompanied by Fouad Rashed, Abdullah Rajeh al-Yahri and Bajash al-Aghbari, in an open meeting to discuss issues concerning progress on the southern issue.
Baoum said the issue at hand is a struggle to “recover the homeland from the settlers” and continue the struggle until “liberation”. He spoke on the historical progress of the south and attacked the ambition of northern peoples to occupy south provinces. He also spoke of conspiracies on Abdul Fatah Isma’il for inciting sedition among the southern people.
The meeting at the southern Martyr camp in Wadi Hadhramawt also included cultural activities and songs praising Baoum by the likes of singer Abu Assad.
Lawyer Sami Jaoas, head of the Southern Movement Wadi Hadhramawt camp gave a speech welcoming the delegation explaining the role of the camp in the liberation process.
Baoum went on that same afternoon to Shibam where he was met with songs by the people. He also went to al-Qatan town where he attended a festival.
