Lethal Force in Yemen

“Lethal Force” is the title of a documentary film prepared by the Southern Independent Group. “Lethal Force” talks about the unlawful violence against civilians in Yemen by the government. The film follows many cases in which state apparatus use excessive violence including  suppression of peaceful protests such as the continuing violations against the right to peaceful assembly in Shabwa.

The film also highlights the phenomenon of the assassinations of members of the Shabwani Elite Forces. Eye witness testimony in addition to the testimony of the victims and their families clearly point the finger at government forces being behind these practises, worryingly, supported by extremist and terrorist groups and operatives based in government controlled areas.

The film will be projected and a discussion will follow the projection
