Bahrain Youths save an Asian Laborer from Suffocating in CS gas | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The Bahraini Al-Khalifa regime calls these heroes, 'terrorists!'

 

I call the Al-Khalifas terrorists since they were the ones instigating the CS gassing!

 

I call the freedom fighting youth heroes because they champion life, dignity, and Human Rights!

White, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red: not the Rainbow Colours; They are the Colours of Bahrain Toxic Gas

Bahrain Mirror (exclusive): In the lastmonths, we have been collecting the tear gas canisters that were used againstus by the riot police, had photos of them, read the information on them andrecognised their types and source to show it to the International and the HumanRights organisations. However, the malignant regime changed its methods toprotect itself, as the gases that have been used recently came with noinformation and no source, nothing just blank canisters that sometimes camewith the name of the gas that we know nothing about except for being affected afterinhaling it.

"Responsibility to Kill" (R2K): Washington Gives Green Light to Toxic Terror in Bahrain

"Responsibility to Kill" (R2K): Washington Gives Green Light to Toxic Terror in Bahrain | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...Also, the teargas being used now is a far more toxic than the previous variety. The new type gives off distinct yellow fumes and is reckoned to be 10 times stronger than regular CS gas. Residents say that their homes are constantly laced with the acrid smell even long after riot police have vacated the area. The number of deaths does not reflect the thousands of injuries from intoxication. There are reports of many pregnant women losing babies from miscarrying.

As pointed out by London-based Campaign Against the Arms Trade, teargas is supposed to be used in riot control situations, not in confined areas, and certainly not in civilian homes.

In Bahrain, the gas is being used more like a chemical weapon against civilians. Its indiscriminate, massive use in mainly Shia villages and residential districts in the capital, Manama, is patently a policy of “toxic terrorism” and “collective punishment” against the 70 per cent of the population demanding that the Western-backed regime gives way to democratic government.  ....

STOP THE INDISCRIMINATE USE OF TEAR GAS IN #BAHRAIN

We are calling on all people of conscience to stop the indiscriminate and reckless use of tear gas on the citizens of Bahrain.
Used as a crowd-control device in many parts of the world, CS gas, and possibly other chemical substances, are being used as a collective punishment in the towns and villages of Bahrain when no protest or other apparent need for crowd control exists. They are being singled out on a sectarian basis as "enemies of the state" with no regard to the recent BICI (1)report submitted to the King of Bahrain.(1a)
Entire villages and towns are being blanketed on a daily/nightly basis with thousands of shots of tear gas when there is no protest in progress and it's been documented through video and photos that tear gas is being introduced intentionally into homes(2,video 6) where people have no defense whatsoever against prolonged exposure.(2)
Children,(2,photo 3) the elderly, and people with medical conditions are especially vulnerable and under the present regime they are also being denied medical care. Many deaths have resulted in this egregious violation of human rights.(3)
The U.S. government and Brazil are the predominant vendors of CS to the government of Bahrain.(4) It is for this reason, and because the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense and Pentagon (5) have decided to move forward with the sale of an arms package including tear gas to Bahrain that we are speaking out with one voice: STOP THIS MADNESS, STOP CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEATHS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE.
While national defense is a legitimate need, using tear gas on civilians in their homes does NOT contribute to the national defense of any nation.
We call on all members of the U.S.Congress to speak up for human rights in Bahrain. We respectfully ask them to tell the U.S. Department of State and Defense to discontinue the sale of teargas to Bahrain until it can be assured it will not be misused as it is every day there.
This is an issue of human rights; an issue of the very Right to Life that people, mothers & fathers,(6) all over the world are saying: Please, please, do whatever you can to stop the serious injury and death of innocent Bahrainis.
STOP THE TEAR GAS.
Respectfully,

A citizen of

Bahrain’s use of tear gas against protesters increasingly deadly | Amnesty International

Bahrain’s use of tear gas against protesters increasingly deadly | Amnesty International | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Amnesty International has called on the US government to suspend transfers of tear gas and other riot control equipment to the Bahraini authorities. US-made tear gas canisters and baton rounds were found in the aftermath of the 17 February 2011 raid by riot police on peaceful protests at what was then called Pearl Roundabout in Manama.

The USA halted a pending arms shipment to Bahrain in October 2011 amid outcry about ongoing human rights concerns.

Meanwhile the Brazilian government has reportedly set up an inquiry into reports that Brazilian companies were selling tear gas to the Bahraini government.

Bahraini Government’s Use of Tear Gas Claims many Lives

Bahraini Government’s Use of Tear Gas Claims many Lives | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A Bahraini doctor told Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) that she believes that the government is using a new kind of tear gas that is more dangerous. But without knowing the active ingredient, she has been struggling to treat patients:

“I was exposed to different types of gas when I went to (the village of) Sitra—a white gas and a yellow one, but I also saw a third gas of a blue color from a distance. The gas felt like a poison, like a thousand knives and needles all over your body; what kind of tear gas is supposed to affect people this way? I have seen tear gas patients who are in a state of convulsion that never ends, like a prolonged seizure… Before the tear gas that was being used had ‘Pennsylvania, USA’ written on it, now the canisters are just blank with no labels. It is impossible to know what the contents are.”
