Bahrain: Severe Human Rights Violations by Security Forces

News Analysis: Bahrain's Revolution Reaches What Could Become Decisive Phase
by: Husain Abdulla, t r u t h o u t , 09 March 2011

The people's revolution is on its track, calling for the removal of the regime and performing various activities on the road to victory. In the past week, several remarkable activities were undertaken with resounding success. First came the picketing of the financial harbor owned by the regime's Prime Minister Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa. It was conducted at night when hundreds of protesters moved from their base at Pearl Square and took position near the main financial center. Then came the massive demonstration and picketing of the main torture headquarters at Bahrain's Fort, where a human wave flooded to highlight the role that place had been playing in torturing Bahrainis over the years. It stands as a reminder of the most brutal periods of the Al Khalifa reign of terror. The revolutionaries then organized another qualitative demonstration outside the main TV station, which is the mouthpiece of the repressive Al Khalifa regime. In addition to these, there have been massive demonstrations nearer to Pearl Square where hundreds of thousands took part chanting anti-regime slogans and calling for a regime change. Sunday, one of the demonstrations was held outside the government offices in Qudhaibiya where participants called for the downfall of the regime.
