This September 2011 video says about itself:
On September 15, 2011 more than 130 Human Rights Defenders from over 80 countries protested outside the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Dublin, Ireland for the freedom of their colleague Abdulhadi Al Khawaja from Bahrain.
Beat up by security forces, Bahraini activist barred from seeing doctors

A leading human rights activist is being barred from the medical treatment he urgently needs, despite repeated attempts by human rights organizations to get him help.
Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, one of the leaders of Bahrain’s peaceful uprising, was brutally beaten on the head in detention over a year ago. The beating was so severe that he now has 18 plates and 36 screws in his face and is in chronic pain. His family has petitioned the prison and the courts to allow Khawaja access to better medical attention, but their petitions have been ignored.
Khawaja was jailed in April 2011 and is now serving a life sentence for defying the ruling regime. He has been repeatedly abused in prison and went on a 110-day hunger strike to protest his treatment.
According to the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, ignoring the medical needs of prisoners is a recurring problem. Mohamed Mushaima, another activist jailed on false charges, died last month due to lack of adequate medical attention. And the horrific crackdown on democracy activists in Bahrain continues, with the number of human rights violations rising by the day.
