Bahrain police break up May Day demo
Most of those sacked during the 2011 protests had been reinstated, but 450 are still unemployed
16:03 May 2, 2013
Dubai: Police in Bahrain fired tear gas on Wednesday to disperse demonstrators demanding the reinstatement of workers sacked from their jobs during pro-democracy protests two years ago, witnesses said.
Dozens of people came out onto the streets in villages around Manama on the occasion of May Day shouting: “We want those people sacked to be reinstated.”
The Wednesday protests were organised by the radical February 14 Revolution Youth Commission through social networking sites.
Union sources said most of the people sacked during the Arab Spring-inspired movement that broke out in February 2011 had been reinstated, but 450 of them are still unemployed.

Dictatorship and Double Standards: Bahrain Is More Repressive Than Russia, But Reading the Washington Post You’d Never Know That: here.

Almost all human rights bodies have condemned the decision and concluded that the Alkhalifa rulers have blood on their hands which they want to hide from the rest of the world.
The cancellation of an international medical ethics conference that had been scheduled for April 10-12 in Bahrain is another sign that the country’s rulers continue a systematic pattern of politicizing medical affairs: here.
