Protesting for Justice in Bahrain


The Bahraini monarchy is one of the world's most despotic. It's also a valued US ally.

by Stephen Lendman

Long-suffering Bahrainis want democratic change. In response, Al Khalifa security forces attack them. 

Washington turns a blind eye. So did Formula One's governing body. On April 22, Bahrain's Grand Prix goes on as planned. Protesters call it "blood on the track." 

Money, prestige, and face saving matter most. So does enforcing power through the barrel of a gun. Justice is nowhere in sight.

From April 20 - 22, the February 14 Youth Coalition promised "three days of rage." Huge masses rally for justice. London's Telegraph said protesters "flooded a main highway in a march stretching for miles...." 

Out with the hated monarchy. Stop the hypocrisy of racing in a virtual war zone. Security forces responded as expected. Violence raged. It still does. Tear gas, rubber bullets, stun grenades, sound bombs, buckshot, and what some called toxic gas are used.
