Not very long, I think. After close to 60 people giving their lives up for their country in under a year, with this number set to rise, by all indications, with thousands dismissed for their jobs for no good reason, for hundreds still in prison just for expressing their opinions and for untold police brutality […]

If you’re not afraid of what and where Bahrain is going, then this clip should give you a good indication.

Who benefits from violence? Who benefits from this? The above is a very unfortunate escalation of violence in Bahrain by people who think that this sort of criminal activity will help our democracy movement! And the thing that beggars belief is that we find people condoning this activity or are in complete and utter denial. […]

Name any country that does not recognise the sacrifices of its citizens, and I’ll guarantee that its government has no real legitimacy in the eyes of their own constituents.
