Grand Prix: A battleground in Bahrain

Grand Prix: A battleground in Bahrain | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Manama, Bahrain - It was a scene the Bahraini government is hoping to avoid: Hundreds of young protesters clashing with riot police and chanting slogans against next month’s Bahrain Grand Prix, a race which many officials here describe as a watershed for the country’s struggling economy.

The demonstration on Saturday night attracted a small crowd, according to witnesses, and it drew a large response from the police, which deployed more than two dozen SUVs and armoured vehicles to Sitra. Protesters threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at them, and quickly dispersed after a volley of tear gas.

At least three people were arrested, and a woman was injured after being hit by a tear gas canister.

Last year’s grand prix was canceled because of widespread unrest in Bahrain, and this year’s race has become a battleground. The opposition is lobbying Formula One to cancel the race as a rebuke to the ongoing abuses committed by Bahraini security forces.

“No Formula One without human rights” was a popular slogan on Saturday. Another chant warned the race’s main backer, crown prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, that “your project will not succeed”

The real inducer of Bahrain's revolution لميس ضيف: رسالة لملك البحرين

Economic injustice and loyalty to the martyrs who have given the ultimate sacrifrice for a free Bahrain are two major forces portrayed in this documentary.

 

Economic injustice is the same issue as in the OCCUPY movement in the US.  It is corporate greed and coruption in the West, it is Al-Khalifa greed and coruption in Bahrain!

 

A strong middle class is the 'backbone'  of a vital economy.........
