1000s hold demo in Bahrain to reject proposed reforms | Islamic Invitation Turkey

1000s hold demo in Bahrain to reject proposed reforms | Islamic Invitation Turkey | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Tens of thousands of Bahrainis have taken to the streets in the capital Manama to reject the Al Khalifa regime’s proposed reforms.

On Friday, the pro-democracy demonstrators denounced the reforms announced by Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa a day earlier, saying the measures do not represent the people and opposition living in the Persian Gulf country.

On the same day, the leader of Bahrain’s biggest opposition movement, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, said that the new proposal “ignores the legitimate demands of the people,” and the “official position remains rigid.”

“The royal family retains all powers — executive, legislative and judicial, in addition to security, information and wealth,” Sheikh Ali Salman stated, adding, “The solution would be to give up this monopoly of all power and respect the will of the people.”....

Bahrain arrests 183 protesters, including 31 children in one month - opposition | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A report issued by a Bahraini human rights body says the country saw 745 protests in just December alone. The government’s reaction to dissent, according to the study, included arrests of 31 children, home raids and enforced disappearances.

Out of the 745 “sporadic protests” recorded by the Liberties and Human Rights Department in Al Wefaq Society (Bahrain’s major opposition party), more than a half were suppressed by security forces, according to the organization’s report released Thursday.

Crackdowns on protests were accompanied by arrests, with 183 rally participants ending up behind bars, including 31 children.

Citizens of the world,

We are Anonymous.

For over one year the people of Bahrain have peacefully protested in the streets for freedom, justice, and democracy. They have been met with tear gas, live ammunition, torture, kidnapping and death while the United Nations and countries around the world turn their backs.

People have been imprisoned for the crime of ‘advocating human rights.’ Citizens whose families have been murdered by the government are arrested, women are raped, tear gas is fired in to homes at night and infants lay dead.

We demand the Bahraini government stop killing its people. We demand they put an end to their Human Rights violations, stop arresting and torturing their citizens, and stop the use of mercenaries against their own people. We demand the immediate release of all human rights activists and all those jailed for political “crimes.” We also demand the Qorvis corporation and other American P R firms stop working on behalf of the Bahraini government and stop their active campaigns of disinformation, lies, and harassment of activists.

We will lay waste to your servers, spread the truth about your illegitimate government, show solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Bahrain and expose your crimes against humanity.

To the people of Bahrain, continue protesting. Continue demonstrating peacefully. You have the support of the people of the world and you will have the freedom you deserve.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Bahrainian Government, Expect us. ....

Bahrain: A Bloody day during the Public Strike on the Occasion of the Second Anniversary of Crushing the Protests

Bahrain: A Bloody day during the Public Strike on the Occasion of the Second Anniversary of Crushing the Protests | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The 14 February Coalition – a political youth movement that was launched in 2011 after the protests began – called for a public strike on the occasion of the second anniversary of crushing the protests which began in the Pearl Roundabout on 14 February. The Peninsula Shield Force – Forces from the Arab Gulf Countries – had entered on 15 March, and on 16 March the Security Forces and army had stormed the Pearl Roundabout, and many citizens were wounded and killed.

The strike began in the morning of 14 March, where a group of youth blocked roads. The Security Forces attempted to reopen the roads by using excessive forces and bulldozers to remove the blockades. The strike continued in the villages until midnight.

At sometimes, violent clashes took place between the Security Forces and protestors which led to numerous injuries among the protestors.....

Clashes in Bahrain as Protesters Mark Anniversary

Clashes in Bahrain as Protesters Mark Anniversary | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Police fired stun grenades at the demonstrators during the clashes in the mainly Shiite neighborhoods surrounding the capital, Manama. Starting early in the morning, the mostly young demonstrators blocked roads leading into scores of Shiite villages to prevent security forces from entering.

Bahrain's Shiite majority is seeking a greater political voice in the strategic Sunni-ruled kingdom, which is home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet.

The main Shiite opposition group, Al Wefaq, said 35 protesters were wounded in the clashes, including three critically, in what it called a "systematic policy carried out under high, official orders to use violence against peaceful pro-democracy protesters."

It also accused police of using live ammunition and bird shot against some protesters.

"This is unforgettable day," said Maki Ali, an 18-year-old demonstrator from Bilad Al Qadeem, west of the capital. "I remember well how the Saudis with United Arab Emirates intervened in my country's internal affairs. They supported the government killing."

Saudi and other Gulf troops were deployed in Bahrain to help the Western-backed Sunni monarchy quell a wave of anti-government protests demanding a greater role for the country's Shiite majority.....

The small Persian Gulf kingdom ramps its up persecution of "Arab spring" revolutionaries.....

Bahrain may appear a relatively stable Western ally in a critically important region of the world there is a dark cloud hanging over the small island kingdom.

The peaceful protests in Bahrain that were once prevalent during the beginning of the country’s version of the “Arab spring” have succumbed to a dangerous mix of arrests, flimsy prosecutions, indefinite detention, torture and violence. A significant part of this is fueled by the Bahraini monarchy’s refusal to enact political reforms, much to the chagrin of international human rights activists. Recommendations to enhance the power of the legislature and prosecute senior security officials who are suspected of abuse have been largely ignored. ....

BAHRAIN,  bombs, protests, and prisoners.....and a Totalitarian regime.... | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

There have been protests for years while  great men advocated publicly for peaceful civil disobedience

The regime imprisons Abdulhadi AlKhawaja ,  Nabeel Rajab, Ebrahim Sharif and countless others to attempt to stop the protests against the fascist regime.

 

NOW THE IGNORANT AND IMPOTENT ALKHALIFAS ARE DEALING WITH BOMBINGS!  

I'll wager that these persons being freed would be sufficient to return Bahrain to peaceful civil disobedience !  I'll further wager that the AlKhalifas are too stupid to be able to see this reality!

Thousands of marchers in Bahrain have joined the largest anti-government protest in months in the violence-gripped Gulf nation.

Sporadic clashes with security forces broke out Friday as more than 10,000 marchers clogged a main highway, but most of the event was peaceful.

The rally was approved by Bahrain’s Sunni rulers as part of efforts at outreach with the Shiite-led opposition. But many marchers appeared emboldened by U.S. President Barack Obama’s mention of sectarian tensions in Bahrain in his U.N. address earlier this week.....

 Have you ever seen a country like Bahrain where 80-85% of the population protested in the streets against the brutal ruling regime of Al Khalifa, and gets ignored? What people of any other country in that high percentage ever protested for something in a single event? Yes Bahrain's population is small and barely a million, but when 800,000 people protested in a single day, it's a shame for any human, government and media to ignore the glorious Bahraini revolution! It's like half a billion people protesting in China or 250 million protesting in the USA, so why the double standards and hypocrisy? Long live the Bahraini people. Occupy Bahrain

Tens of thousands of protesters flood the streets of Bahrain demanding democracy in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom. The peaceful march, held under the watchful eye of the state, took over a highway outside the capital Manama. Protesters called on Bahrain's powerful ruling family to implement what they termed "real democracy". (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTER, ABDUL NABI AL HAMAR, SAYING: "The movement in Bahrain will continue and the people will not leave the streets. They are out demanding freedom and democracy and will not back down." Bahrain, home to a major U.S. naval base, has been in political turmoil since protests - dominated by Shi'ite Muslims - erupted in early 2011. Those were put down with force, but clashes have continued almost daily. Shi'ite protesters complain of being politically and economically marginalized, which the Sunni-led government denies.
