Unification

This is a monument commemorating the unification of North and South Yemen.  Many southerners, Adenis in particular, dislike the north. After unification, the more politically powerful (and populous) Northerners took over Aden’s port and began to send the majority of the profits to Sana’a. People have told me that Important government and economic positions were taken from Adenis and given to Northerners.

The president of Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, is from the north and is widely reviled here in Aden.

This monument is adjacent to a wide swath of brick sidewalk that is used for pro-Government parades. A large painting of Saleh is hung above the whitewashed stone bleachers that look over the area.

Beyond the parade grounds is a neighborhood of embassies, delapidated houses, crumbling structures and a few new constructions. It is also where I work.
