Friends of South Yemen (FOSY) is a society whose main goal is the establishment of an independent state in South Yemen. Membership is open to all Yemenis and individuals and organisations who support this objective.

FOSY’s Chairman Abdul Galil Shaif Kasim said:

“Two countries adjoining, understanding and collaborating with each other are far better than a federal state in which wars, destruction and destitution continue.

We are on a mission to step up our push for international recognition.”

Yemen: The Case for Southern Statehood

Friends of South Yemen is pleased to announce the release of its documentary video titled, Yemen: The Case for Southern Statehood.

A road map for Yemen

Friends of South Yemen proposes to the international community a three-stage plan to bring about a peaceful solution to the crisis in Yemen. The road map makes proposals for an ending of the war in Yemen, finding a way out of the current political stalemate and offering a vision for the future.

The detailed proposals are featured as the cover story of Issue 10 of the South Yemen Update newsletter, and are also available as a separate document by clicking here.

The lead article poses the question: “Is a unilateral declaration of independence the only option for South Yemen?”

Other articles include a statement from the 48th session of the UN Human Rights Council to which FOSY made a contribution, and a report about a recent lecture given by Salem Hamdiah about his work on the biodiversity of Socotra Archipelago.
