Thousands join peaceful protest in Bahrain

Thousands join peaceful protest in Bahrain | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Anti-government protesters are demanding the release of prisoners in the first permitted demonstration since June.

 

Tens of thousands of people chanting anti-government slogans and holding up pictures of jailed activists took part on Friday in Bahrain's first authorised opposition protest since June.

No clashes occurred at Friday's march along a 3 km stretch of a highway west of the capital of Manama. Protesters carried Bahraini flags and held up images of rights activist and protest leader Nabeel Rajab, calling for his release......

Fars News Agency :: Bahraini, Saudi People to Stage Concurrent Rallies on Sunday

Fars News Agency :: Bahraini, Saudi People to Stage Concurrent Rallies on Sunday | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The Sunday protests are due to be held under the title of "The Nation Will never Compromise" in the Saudi Qatif region and 50 regions across Bahrain.

The organizers of the rallies have announced that the main goal behind the demonstrations is supporting and announcing solidarity with the Bahraini and Saudi dissident leaders who are experiencing harsh pressures and tortures in prison.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13, 2011, to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

So far, more than 69 people have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured.

Also, since February 2011, Saudi protesters have held demonstrations on an almost regular basis in Eastern Provinces, mainly in the Qatif region and the town of Awamiyah, calling for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination.

However, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the Al Saud regime, especially since November 2011, when Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others.

The Saudi interior ministry issued a statement on March 5, 2011, prohibiting "all forms of demonstrations, marches or protests, and calls for them, because that contradicts the principles of the Islamic Sharia, the values and traditions of Saudi society, and results in disturbing public order and harming public and private interests."

In June, Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud ordered the country's security forces to go on a state of high alert due to what he called a "turbulent situation" in the region.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Saudi regime "routinely represses expression critical of the government".

Senior Wefaq member Abduljalil Khalil decried what he said was a new policy to end the use of the street to demand reforms.

"This will lead to more escalation since people now feel no hope. There is no chance to practice their freedom, they have cornered everybody now," he said.

Amnesty International criticized the bans on Thursday, saying the government was violating fundamental rights. A government statement said the interior ministry was working on identifying "approved locations" for rallies.

Since April the authorities have stepped up efforts to crack down on unrest. Activists cite an increased use of shotgun pellets, whose use authorities have declined to confirm or deny. ....

....

We drove past the coffee shop where all the activists hang out. The place is also crawling with undercover government agents and informers, making it off-limits for me. Their presence doesn’t seem to bother the activists, who are all well-known to the government. But if I get caught, I’ll be immediately deported. The activists gathered on the café’s outside terrace all seemed to be watching a white minibus with steel grates covering its windows, parked in a roundabout directly across from the café and guarded by several armed riot police. I had seen similar minibuses parked all along the side of Budaiya road (an area known as a hot spot.)

“They’re called Coasters,” H. explained to me. “Look, someone is being arrested now.”

The policemen hustled a young man into the Coaster. When the demonstration was over, I presumed, he and any other young men arrested in the nearby villages would be driven to the nearest police station. If the Coaster rocked slightly back and forth, H. told me, the activists knew that the detainees were being beaten.

Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have clashed with anti-regime demonstrators in the north of the country.

Riot police fired tear gas canisters during demonstrations against plans to limit political marches on Friday, The Associated Press reported.

Demonstrations were held in the villages of Diraz, Bilad al-Qadeem, and Musalla. In Diraz, the protesters called for the ouster of the Al Khalifa royal family.

At least one protester was injured by birdshot fired by regime forces in Musalla. ....

...

Not long after accounts of the first heroes to sacrifice their lives for freedom were broadcast, news of what started to look like a concerted effort to maim peaceful protesters by literally targeting their eyes began to escape the jail that Bahrain had become. ...

 

But it is precisely because of these heroes’ vision – their audacious belief that Bahrain can be governed by the consent of its people – that have cost them their vision, the full use of their eyes, cynically damaged by a ruthlessly vicious police apparatus which long ago lost sight of its supposed mission to protect and serve the people of Bahrain, to enforce laws which are supposed to protect against the wanton use of lethal violence. They’ve become a private hit squad whose sole purpose is to safeguard the blurred vision of the AlKhalifa dictatorship, a vision that sees Bahrain’s riches continuing to flow into their palaces and bank accounts, while those who they think don’t deserve a nation of which they can take ownership kiss the mighty’s rings and bow in submission to what is, for all intents and purposes, a craven, brutal gang of torturing lunatics, drunk on money and living in a dream world that must come to accept an entirely different vision of the future, if Bahrain is to have a future.

There is an old (dating back even before the AlKhalifas began to rule Bahrain) English proverbial phrase that says there are “None so blind as those that will not see.” I cannot think of a more apt description of the dictatorship which would literally seek to steal the vision from the brave people who have risked everything for the sun to rise one day upon a free Bahrain.  ~Tom Rizzo

 

[Blindness for the Al-Khalifas has been caused by their selfishness, hedonism, and lust for power.  Now bereft of all vision, their faculties of reason and morality have clouded as well.....Poor Khalifas, I doubt that they will ever find their way back to humanity! ]

Bahrain's Epic Fail

Bahrain's Epic Fail | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...

This week's Formula One-driven media scrutiny has ripped away Bahrain's carefully constructed external facade. It has exposed the failure of Bahrain's regime to take advantage of the breathing space it bought through last year's crackdown or the lifeline thrown to it by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Iniquiry. That failure to engage in serious reform will likely further radicalize its opponents and undermine hopes for its future political stability.

Bahrain's Royalty is counting on the Formula One Grand Prix to refurbish the country's brutal image. But fun at the races might just backfire to the benefit of the thousands who have been arrested and tortured. ....

Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, said the authorities were cracking down on opposition protestors ahead of the race, staging arrests and attacking demonstrators that he alleged was intended to ensure they were still convalescing by the time the Grad Prix begins, April 20.

He said peaceful and legal protests are planned during the race even as he held out hope that the last minute campaign would convince the race organizers to cancel.

"They have put profits and their interests before human rights. The situation [in Bahrain] has worsened. The number of people who were killed from the beginning of the year till now is more than people killed last year," Rajab told The Media Line. If the race goes as planned, it will earn an image as the "a sport of dictators'," he added.
