Today Abigail Fielding-Smith published what I think is a fantastic piece of journalism on southern Yemen and Aden. I encourage all of you to read her fine piece.
Indeed, as Yemen becomes more fractured and fragmented I think this is exactly the type of journalism that we need to see more of: in-depth pieces on a particular region. I don't think broad overview pieces of Yemen as a whole do any of us any good anymore. Yemen is too divided for that. No longer is it accurate to talk about Yemen; now we need to start talking about the different Yemens.
Political activism may get people invested in politics, and affect urgently needed change, but it comes at the expense of tolerance and healthy democratic norms.
