Bahrainis rally to remember crackdown martyrs

 

 

Bahrainis have rallied throughout the Gulf island in remembrance of those killed during the regime’s years-long crackdown on peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations.

Protesters on Saturday took to the streets on the Sitra island in eastern Bahrain, including the Eker area, the village of Sanabis in the capital Manama’s countryside, and the northern village of Abu Saiba. Regime forces responded to the protests with teargas canisters and rubber bullets.

The Saudi-allied regime has been coming down hard on dissent since 2011, when the nation rose en masse in protest at the ruling Al Khalifa family’s suppressive and discriminatory policies targeting the country’s Shia majority.
