I watch it until minute five.When five bastards in heavy armor start beating one kid.First I was so pissed off when i so this video.Most of this assholes who are attacking Bahrain people are mercenaries from Pakistan.They got 30 thousand dollars up front and than another twenty when they do their job.Nice work they are paid by Zionist family to kill they own Muslim brothers.Their mother must be very proud of them.BUT when it comes to UN help we can all have a good lough.It is public knowledge that American and British firms are selling weapons,tear gas and other instruments to torture Bahrain people to this Al Khalifa family.And what UN did?Ban Ki Moon probably had a good lough.The only help to Bahrain people can come from Iran and from nowhere else.BUT it is a big question do  they wont a help from Iran?I remember one year ago on CNN i watch one of the leaders of Bahrain freedom movement(I cant remember his name)and he said that they do not need Iran:he said that they want democracy and do not want Islamic republic like Iran.Not to mention that party headquarters are in London.And other this Al Wefaq what is their official stance?Their leader was educated in Qom but I do not seen him affiliated to Iran very much.I am just trying to say that is not like Iran did not do anything to help Bahrain.Iran have ability and military force to do that but maybe it just was not invited to help?Do we have some member here from Bahrain here to explain it better?

It's unbelievable... Where is the hypocrite Arab League now? Where is NATO? The same west that is focusing all day on Syria, turns strangely silent when it comes to the corrupt Al Khalifa or Saud monarchies, which were brought to power by the west which protects them from their own people.

But the Bahreini people shall be victorious, inshallah. And they will remember the US / EU for what they are, ie a bunch of oppressive imperial powers with the blood of millions on their hands. Down with the wahhabi lackeys, and down with their foreign masters!

Bahrain's Shias demand reform at mass rally

Tens of thousands march along a main road near capital after sermon from leading Shia cleric urging greater democracy.
Last Modified: 10 Mar 2012 02:34

 


Tens of thousands of Bahrainis demonstrated in Budaiya to demand democratic reforms [Reuters]
The protesters began marching along a main road near the city on Friday in response to a call from leading Shia cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim who urged people to renew their calls for greater democracy.

Tens of thousands of Bahrainis have demonstrated outside the capital Manama to demand political reforms, a year after the Gulf Arab state crushed an uprising, witnesses said.

A live blog showed images of the protesters carrying banners denouncing "dictatorship" and demanding the release of detainees.

"We are here for the sake of our just demands that we cannot make concessions over and we stick with them because we have sacrificed for them," Qassim said before the march, during his weekly sermon in the Shia village of Diraz.

He had promised to personally lead the march, his most high-profile action in more than a year of unrest.

'Biggest demonstration'

A photographer with the Reuters news agency said the main Budaiya road in the area of Diraz, and Saar, west of Manama was packed, just one hour before the protest was set to begin.


Egyptian human rights expert, Mahmoud Sherif Basyouni on his report.

"It is the biggest demonstration in the past year. I would say it could be over 100,000," he said.

Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, told Al Jazeera by phone from Manama that "thousands of security forces" had been deployed to close down roads leading to the protest site.

"The message is that people are not happy with the government. We have clear demands: an elected government, a parliament with power, an end to sectarian discrimination, a clear redistribution of wealth and power and all demands guaranteed by the international convention on human rights," he said.

Rajab added that Friday's protests were "the biggest in our history".

Independent inquiry

The country's majority Shia population were in the forefront of last year's protest movement in Bahrain, which erupted in February after uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia.
 
The Sunni Muslim ruling Al Khalifa family crushed the protests one month later, imposing a period of martial law and bringing in Saudi and United Arab Emirates troops to restore order.

An independent commission of inquiry, formed and funded by Bahrain's government, investigated the protests in February and March 2011.

The commission found that "Thirty-five deaths occurred between February 14 and April 15, 2011 that have been linked to the events of February and March 2011. The deaths of 19 of these civilians have been attributed to security forces."

Among other findings, the commission reported that "Many detainees were subjected to torture and other forms of physical and psychological abuse while in custody".

Bahrain, where the US Fifth Fleet is based, has remained mired in crisis and Shia youths clash daily with riot police.

The unrest has slowed the economy in what was a major tourism and banking hub in the Gulf region.

Riyadh's influence

Tension has risen in recent weeks around the February 14 anniversary of the uprising, with security forces maintaining a tight grip on the traffic intersection that protesters originally occupied.

Pro-government Sunni groups have organised counter rallies, warning the authorities not to enter into a dialogue on reforms that could give the elected parliament legislative clout and the power to form governments.
 
Those groups look to Sunni power Saudi Arabia as a key ally and say the opposition is loyal to Shia Iran, a charge the opposition parties deny. Analysts say Riyadh does not want Bahrain to agree to reforms that empower Shias.

Qassim said Friday's march would show how strong the opposition was.

"The march will either prove you are only an isolated minority making demands, or that the demands are widely
popular," he said in his sermon, which was posted on YouTube.

Bahrain protesters boost pressure with huge rally

Opposition leaders estimate the crowd at nearly 100,000; small breakaway groups driven back by tear gas
APPublished: 19:07 March 9, 2012


Manama, Bahrain: Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters flooded a major highway in Bahrain on Friday in one of the largest opposition rallies in months.
 
Security forces fired tear gas at smaller groups attempting to reach a heavily guarded square that was once the protest hub.

The main procession was mostly peaceful, but breakaway groups were driven back by tear gas as they headed toward Pearl Square, which was the centre of the protests for weeks last year until it was stormed by security forces.

The march stretched for kilometres. Some opposition leaders estimated the crowd at nearly 100,000, which would make it one of the largest protest gatherings since the street rallies erupted in February 2011.

Organisers said the march would end at a site called Freedom Square outside Bahrain's capital, Manama. Police reinforcements were sent to keep protesters from any attempts to shift toward Pearl Square, which is now ringed by razor wire and under 24-hour watch.

Bahrain police battle to control streets in flashpoint town



Andrew Hammond Reuters

5:14 p.m. CDT, March 24, 2012

SITRA, Bahrain (Reuters) - Bahraini police clashed with anti-government protesters on Saturday at a Shi'ite town where residents tried to demonstrate against the Gulf Arab state's holding of a Formula One race next month.

Hundreds of riot police backed by dark blue armored vehicles and jeeps patrolled the streets of Sitra, a poor district southeast of Manama where youths threw petrol bombs and stones at security forces who responded with tear gas canisters, Reuters witnesses said.

Sitra has long been a flashpoint area where Shi'ite Muslim youths vent anger against a government they feel marginalizes them politically and economically.

The Sunni-led government blames Shi'ite clerics for the communal conflict, saying they had turned people against the state and incited Shi'ites to raise the temperature on the streets ahead of the race.

Anger on the streets of Sitra rose each time patrols had passed and residents taunted security forces by shouting from inside houses, banging on trash bins and honking horns.

"Come here, you immigrants", youths shouted, referring to foreign Sunni Muslim hires working with riot police. Some chanted against the island's ruler, King Hamad.

"You know, it's been going on like this for 30 years, and they still don't want to give us our rights," said Ali Mansour, a 45-year-old taxi driver sheltering with his wife in a car as fumes began to seep in from more canisters that landed nearby.

Bahrain has been bitterly divided since its Shi'ite majority led protests last year for reforms they hope would reduce the powers of the ruling Al Khalifa family, give parliament legislative clout and bring opposition figures into government.

Some called for ditching the monarchy altogether, angering many Sunnis who view the royal family as a force for good and protection against Shi'ite empowerment.

The authorities crushed the protest movement, which was inspired by revolts that brought down entrenched rulers in Egypt and Tunisia, by imposing a period of martial law and bringing in Saudi and other Gulf Arab troops to help win back control of the streets.

But over a year later, ongoing unrest - with clashes in Shi'ite villages and large opposition party marches - has damaged Bahrain's economy and alarmed Western allies.

They view Bahrain as an important ally in their standoff with Iran over its nuclear program but want the government to resolve the conflict by reaching a deal with the opposition.

A U.N. rights body this week expressed concern over the use of excessive force and tear gas by Bahraini security forces.

ANTI-GOVERNMENT HOTSPOT

Sitra is covered in anti-government graffiti describing the king as a tyrant and glorifying imprisoned community leaders. One poster cited a condemnation by Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of the concept of kingship as un-Islamic.

Many streets are strewn with concrete blocks, pieces of wood and trash bins to stop police cars moving into the back alleys.

King Hamad took power in 1999 and vowed to restore parliament and introduce democratic reforms, receiving a rapturous welcome in 2001. He freed prisoners after taking office but came under pressure to introduce further reforms following last year's protests.

Now Bahrain's Formula One Grand Prix on April 20-22 has become embroiled in the troubles, as opposition groups vow to step up protests. Police pulled down posters on the walls in Sitra saying "No Formula 1 in Bahrain".

"They are paying a lot for Formula One, while people are dying every day," said Mirza Rabia, 41, a government employee.

Activists say at least 33 people have died since June amid daily clashes in Shi'ite districts, as the government tries to lock protesters in to stop any renewed mass movement in Manama.

Police question the causes of death and their attribution to the conflict. They say they are showing restraint in the face of violent youth challenging state authority.

"We are the government and these guys are scum. Molotov cocktails are not peaceful, they make it rain with molotovs," said a police corporal who declined to be named.

He said it was difficult to imagine integrating people from Shi'ite communities into the police force - a key recommendation from former Miami police chief John Timoney who is advising the interior ministry on improving conduct.

Bahrain Shi'ites battle police at protester's funeral, 8 held



Wed Aug 22, 2012 6:50pm IST

* Police bombarded with petrol bombs, stones

* Opposition say police start violence with tear gas volley

* Turmoil persists in U.S.-Saudi Gulf ally against Iran

DUBAI, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Protesters pelted police with petrol bombs and stones in clashes that broke out in Bahrain on Tuesday night at the funeral for a teenage demonstrator killed last week in a new bout of unrest

in the U.S.-allied Gulf state.

Police arrested eight protesters, the government said. The opposition accused the security forces of provoking the violence by firing tear gas.

Bahrain, where the U.S. Fifth Fleet is based, has been in crisis since a revolt led by majority Shi'ite Muslims began 18 months ago to demand democracy in the Sunni-ruled kingdom.

The government has denounced the protest movement, inspired by uprisings elsewhere in the Arab world, as sectarian and a part of a quest by Shi'ite Iran to dominate the region. Bahraini Shi'ites deny being steered from Tehran.

The violence broke out the funeral of 16-year-old Hussam al-Haddad, who was killed on Friday by police gunfire.

"A group of rioters bombarded police with Molotov cocktails and stones from the roof of a religious centre," a government statement said.

"Another group attempted to block several roads, while still others began an illegal rally on a busy road," it said, adding that eight people had been arrested.

The main opposition Wefaq party said riot police started the violence by firing tear gas at those mourning Haddad.

"Many injuries were reported as the regime forces opened fire at mourners," Wefaq said. "As usual, the regime forces backed the militias who took part in attacking the mourners."

Authorities issue permits for protests but have not granted any since June. Wefaq and witnesses said police set up roadblocks to prevent people attending the funeral, which was held on the island of al-Muharraq.

The disturbances followed the arrest of 11 people on Monday evening during clashes with riot police in the capital Manama and Hamad Town.

SHOTGUN PELLETS

Opposition activists said Haddad was also beaten by plainclothes agents. The Interior Ministry said the death resulted from police reacting in self-defence to a petrol bomb attack on a patrol.

Haddad's death was the first in the unrest since April, when a man was found on a rooftop covered in shotgun pellet wounds after clashes with police the night before.

The Shi'ite-led opposition says more than 45 people have been killed in protests since June 2011, when the government lifted martial law it had imposed to help quash the uprising.

They also say hundreds of people have been arrested since the government said in April it would crack down on protesters who skirmished with police. The Interior Ministry has not said how many people are now in detention.

Bahraini authorities say more than 700 police officers have been hurt in clashes and that the police, who have not used live fire, have been exercising restraint. Opposition activists say the police are anything but restrained.

The opposition's central demand is for the elected parliament to have full powers to legislate and form governments.

King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa has approved constitutional reforms that give the assembly more powers of scrutiny over ministers and budgets.

The government and political parties have held low-key, inconclusive talks on how to end the turmoil.

Bahrain is an important card in a regional competition for predominance between Iran and U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia.

U.S. warships from the Fifth Fleet help ensure oil exports flow freely out of the Gulf, while Iran has threatened a blockade if its protracted stand-off with Western powers over its disputed nuclear programme deteriorates into conflict.

Underscoring the high geopolitical stakes in Bahrain, Saudi and United Arab Emirates troops intervened in March 2011 to help the Al Khalifas contain the revolt, a move that caused a rupture in Manama's relations with Iran.

A policeman in Bahrain was killed and another critically injured in a bomb attack while on patrol south of the capital Manama, security officials said on Friday, as further unrest convulsed the Gulf Arab kingdom and close U.S. ally.

Bahrain, where the U.S. Fifth Fleet is based as a bulwark against Iran, has been volatile since majority Shi'ite Muslims began protesting against alleged discrimination last year.

Those protests were initially crushed by the kingdom's Sunni Muslim monarchy, with martial law and help from Gulf neighbors. However, smaller scale demonstrations have since resumed and anti-government protesters clash with security forces several times every week in the small island country.

The policemen were attacked in the village of Akr late on Thursday by rioters with petrol bombs and an unspecified "explosive device", the information authority said in a statement, citing Major General Tariq Hasan al-Hasan, the security chief.

One policeman died of his injuries on Friday morning while the other was in a critical condition, it said. An investigation was underway to find the assailants, Hasan said.

Earlier on Friday, Bahrain's interior ministry described the incident in the mostly Shi'ite village as a "terrorist attack".

Thousands of people attended the policeman's funeral in the mainly Sunni area of Rifaa on Friday afternoon, witnesses told Reuters.

Some mourners shouted "Down, down with Issa Qassim", in reference to Sheikh Issa Qassim, a spiritual guide to Shi'ites in Bahrain. Qassim is not connected to any party but led a pro-democracy protest of some 100,000 people in March.

Bahraini police have been the target of such bombings several times in the past year, most recently in May when four policemen were wounded.

Shi'ites complain of discrimination in the electoral system, jobs, housing and education and say they are mistreated by government departments, the police and the army. Government promises of action to address their concerns have come to nothing, they say.

An anti-government demonstration attended by thousands and organized by the main al Wefaq opposition bloc on Friday afternoon west of Manama passed off peacefully, witnesses said.

A commission of international legal experts reported in November that torture had been systematically used on protesters to punish them and extract hundreds of confessions. It recommended reviewing activists' jail sentences.

Bahraini authorities accuse regional Shi'ite power Iran of encouraging the unrest and have promised a tough response to violent protests as talks with the opposition have stalled.
