Bahrain Security Tight Before Uprising Anniversary : NPR | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Opposition groups urged marchers to stream toward an empty lot dubbed "Freedom Square" outside the capital Manama. Some activists seek to occupy the site before Tuesday's anniversary of the start of the wave of protests, and turn it into a new semi-permanent hub for the uprising to replace Pearl Square

[Pearl Square is a state of mind, an awakening of spirit, a place in the heart.  The regime will never tear that down!  'Pearl' is where you make it, 'Pearl is wherever you go, in whatever you do...  By all means, RETURN TO PEARL SQUARE!]

Bahraini Activist Nabil Rajab: Why I Am Taking My Family to Pearl Roundabout

After attempting yesterday to march with a few hundred people to Freedom Square, only to be blocked by scores of riot police, today Nabeel Rajab decided to try another approach. He set out with only his immediate family -- his wife and two children, with a few supporters nearby -- to walk to Pearl (Lulu) Roundabout. Before the family had walked more than a few meters, they were attacked with tear gas. Listen as Nabeel explains what he is trying to accomplish with this simple walk.

[Every time I hear this Great Man speak I am more impressed!  A call for all ages, men, women, everyone...to stand-up for their rights, for their justice, for dignity!  A message that goes far beyond Bahrain!]

Tear gas and armoured vehicles used to disperse protesters after funeral of father of opposition leader.

...

Video and images uploaded on social media websites on Friday appeared to show police cars driving at protesters in several locations.

Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, said the government had blocked roads to try to prevent people from attending the funeral ceremony.

Bahrain is hoping to conclude an arms deal with the United States but the purchase could hinge on the results of the commission investigating this year's unrest and claims by Shias of abuse they suffered during martial law.
