From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The People's Democratic Republic of Yemen — also referred to as Democratic Yemen, South Yemen, or Yemen (Aden)

was a socialist republic in the present-day southern and eastern Provinces of Yemen. It united with the Yemen Arab Republic, commonly known as North Yemen, on May 22, 1990 to form the current Republic of Yemen. However, the agreement did not go through as expected, thus resulting in the 1994 war between the two countries which led to the invasion of the South.
As of 2007, massive protests and rallies by citizens demanding a return to the former southern state have been common, both in the southern provinces of Yemen and internationally. Many southern Yemenis complain that the government (compromised mainly of northern officials) is abusing the unity agreement, claiming unfair distribution of resources and discrimination against them.[1]
