A kid's collection of  rubber bullets from a  neighborhood in Bahrain! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Extreme overusage of baton rounds/rubber bullets in Bahrain!   Notice that NONE of the munitions are of the 'AEP L60A1 Impact Round' variety that is designed to minimize head/throat/groin injuries!  

 

The overuse, the misuse, and the use of a variety that causes deaths by head & throat impacts is a Human Rights abuse when applied to civilians and peaceful demonstrators!

Lawyers press demands in Mubarak security head trial

Lawyers press demands in Mubarak security head trial | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Lawyers called on Egypt's government on Sunday to hand over documents that may reveal who ordered police to fire on protesters during the uprising that unseated President Hosni Mubarak, leaving more than 850 people dead.

The demand came during the trials of Egypt's reviled former Interior Minister Habib el-Adli and deposed Mubarak over the killings, which have captivated Egyptians with real-life drama to trump the most popular Ramadan-season TV soap operas.

Why the U.S. needs to switch its allegiance in Bahrain

Why the U.S. needs to switch its allegiance in Bahrain | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

It is not in America’s strategic interest to alienate democracy activists in Bahrain or to be seen as a nation that arms the riot police who shoot at civilians. Such a short-term approach backfired in Egypt when the dictatorship was overthrown. If the United States is looking to protect its long-term strategic interests in Bahrain, its best course is to plant itself firmly on the side of democracy.

Credit Agricole to close Bahrain office - report | Reuters | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

French bank Credit Agricole CARG.PA is to close its office in Bahrain and move its staff to Dubai, International Financing Review (IFR) said on Sunday, in a blow to the Gulf kingdom's status as a regional banking hub following widespread unrest.

"While sources said that the move has been talked about for some time, they admitted that the unrest which affected the country earlier this year did have some impact on the decision," said IFR, a Thomson Reuters service.

 

The Democracy movement must continue to bring the Al-Khalifa regime under economic pressure to force the issue of Democratic reforms!  SUCCESS!

"I call on Western states... to begin proceedings to seize the possessions and money of Saleh and his family, because they belong to the Yemeni people," he said in an interview with pan Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat, adding those funds could be used to repay the country's debts.

The protests have paralyzed the impoverished Arabian Peninsula state, where even before the unrest some 40 percent of the population lived on less than $2 per day.
