An activist and blogger at Woman from Yemen interviews Hamza, a 24-year-old Yemeni protester, who says the Yemeni people will never stop peaceful resistance against president Ali Abdullah Saleh until his oust.

Our revolution will be peaceful forever as our new Yemen will be peaceful. We will never get to violence unlike Ali Saleh ...  We will stay peaceful because we want to be peaceful. Ali Abdullah Saleh has told the U.S. and Europe that we are violent people. But we are not. We are a peaceful people. We will never hurt people or use arms.

Hamza says the youth protesters, who have been on the streets demonstrating for more than 100 days, will "never get hope until the regime falls". Watch the interview in the clip below:
