Bahrain Center for Human Rights interview
On this day, 14 February - two years ago - protestors in #Bahrain took over Pearl Roundabout in the capital city #Manama. It looked like another #ArabUprising. When security forces cleared the site, at least two protestors were dead, many more injured, and hundreds of activists were imprisoned. Today, hundreds more demonstrated. I heard first the view of an activist from the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, Sayid Yusif Muhafdah, defending the actions of the largely #Shia villagers who'd come out on the streets against the #Sunni government.
