My second ever reblog, from a blog in Britain; on serious human rights issues in a country often mentioned on this blog
Originally posted on MENA Solidarity Network:
Vice-president of the Bahraini Teachers’ Association, Jalila al-Salman recorded a video message for the MENA Solidarity Network event in Parliament ‘Teachers and the Arab Spring’. The audience also heard from resigned Bahraini MPs Ali Alaswad and Jawad Fairouz about the repression faced by teachers and other activists over recent months and the torture suffered by Jalila’s colleague Mahdi Abu Deeb, president of the Bahraini Teachers’ Association.
The meeting also heard reports from Egypt and Tunisia, which we will be posting on our website shortly.
