After more than four years of struggle, on Nov. 30, 1967, the last British soldier left and South Yemen became independent. This year, the pro-secessionist Southern Movement established a protest camp in Aden city on Oct. 14, and is calling for all civil and military personnel from the north to leave the south by Nov. 30.
