Bahrain dictatorship continues

This video says about itself:

People throughout the world should wear the white arm band at least once a week. It tells the world Bahrain’s monarchy has tortured and wounded patients and doctors. The U.S. has remained silent to sell them billions of dollars in weapons.

Please note:

It is too dangerous to wear this in Bahrain right now. But this is a powerful idea that can spread rapidly through the world. We see the abuses the Bahraini people are facing and we do care.

  1. Bahrain transfers hunger striker to prison clinic

    (04-04) 02:34 PDT MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) —

    Bahrain authorities say an imprisoned human rights activist who has been on a hunger strike for more than 50 days has been moved to a prison clinic “for constant medical observation and care.”

    A government statement on Wednesday says activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja was moved to the clinic on Tuesday.

    Al-Khawaja, who is also a Danish citizen, is serving a life sentence for his role in last year’s uprising in the Gulf kingdom.

    On Tuesday, the Danish government said it has been “exerting maximum efforts” to have al-Khawaja sent to Denmark for medical treatment.

    Al-Khawaja has been refusing food since Feb. 8.

    Amnesty International has urged Bahrain to free him because of fears he could die.
