Free Captin Salah Fareed Alshayeb: A call to the Bahraini government to release Captin Salah Alshayeb

Free Captin Salah Fareed Alshayeb: A call to the Bahraini government to release Captin Salah Alshayeb | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
He was promoted to a Senior Captain in 2009 and held that position till the day he was fired. He worked in various areas as a CRM Facilitator, instructor for A320/A340. He was always rated as a top pilot and recently granted the license P-1497 (Rating P1:A320,A330. before two weeks from his arrest he was fired from his work because he particpated in the funeral of one martyr who was killed by the riot police during the
crackdown
.
Salah has three children, a son aged 14, two daughters agged 9 and 3 years old.
He is family oriented person with his dedication to his family and work. Salah has devoted his life to help the needy and commitment to comfort the poor. Salah's work was largely responsible in community services and working to the aid of others
His arrest coincides with a severe government crackdown on opposition activists and his home was stormed on 7 th of may 2011 at mednight at 3am and till today he is not charged and he didnt meet his lawer and his case wasnt transfered to the court
The reason for his arrest or his present whereabouts are unknown, Captin Salah Alshayeb is a simple man who served his country by his position as a captain in gulf air and he is not an actvist and he does not belong to any politcial party and we believe that he was targeted because he is a relative of the actvist Raoof Alshayeb who is in london criticizing the goverment in the media

We call on the Bahraini goverment to release Captain Salah Fareed Alshayeb and overturn this serious miscarriage of justice!

Living in a Minefield: The Landmine Problem in Afghanistan | Doctors Without Borders | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
This report is designed to give an accessible update on the mines situation in Afghanistan in 1997 to diplomats and politicians meeting in Brussels, followed by Oslo and Ottawa to prepare a treaty banning anti-personnel mines. To the many negotiators who have never visited a mined country, the report tries to give a flavor of the continuing effect of millions of mines on people's lives, and to examine the response made by Afghans in 1997.

WASHINGTON, July 26, 2011: Bahraini American Delegation Meet Congress to Discuss Crackdown | PR News Wire | CentreDaily.com | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON, July 26, 2011 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain, ADHRB, is leading a delegation of Bahraini Americans to Washington DC to meet members of Congress and staffers on the hill to discuss the deteriorating political developments and gross Human Rights violations that are taking place in Bahrain.

In a statement released by Husain Abdulla, the director of ADHRB, he stated that: "The Bahraini American community was extremely disappointed with the Obama Administration for its lack of support for the pro-democracy movement in Bahrain. While we supported the positive changes in Tunisia and Egypt, we clearly did not value the Bahraini uprising and somehow considered the demands of the Bahraini people lesser value of the other countries. We are taking this delegation to Washington DC to make a clear case to our policymakers; that a free and democratic Bahrain where people of Bahrain can determine and decide their own political future in which they can elect their leaders in a free and fair election is far much better to our interest in the region; than a Bahrain that violates Human Rights on daily basis which is the case now."

But the aid agency says that there are still huge humanitarian needs on the ground and serious lessons to be learnt from how the response was dealt with.
Oxfam says that much of the country is still not covered by early warning systems and many flood defences that were destroyed in last year's disaster not yet properly repaired.
It says that more flood resistant housing, and effective early warning systems - especially at the village level - are urgently needed.

From the field: The arrest of Ebrahim Sharif (and other opposition figures as well) | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Ebrahim Sharif is a secular reformer, a dignified and serious man who heads Bahrain's National Democratic Action Society (al-Wa'ad).

It is worth reflecting that there are three states in the region that persist in apartheid style discrmination: Bahrain, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. As American applaud the courage of demonstrators across the Middle East, is it not past time to ask why U.S. so avidly abets blatantly repugnant policies?
