Bahrain: Weapons vs. Human Rights
30 August 2013
In Bahrain, democracy protesters have been met with fierce repression. Protesters have been tortured, imprisoned, injured and killed. On 7 August, King Hamad suspended the right to protest, warning protesters they would be met with force.
The UK is promoting weapons over human rights and giving legitimacy to repression.
Aug 7  The U.S. government on Friday said it approved a possible sale of $150 million worth of equipment to Bahrain to maintain its fleet of Lockheed Martin Corp F-16 fighter jets, even as two U.S. senators introduced legislation to reinstate an arms sales ban that was lifted by the Obama administration in June: here.

US Senators Marco Rubio (R-Florida) and Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) introduced legislation this week that would block the sale or transfer of certain arms to Bahrain until the State Department certifies that Bahrain has fully implemented all of the recommendations by an independent oversight commission.
“This legislation sends the clear message U.S. arms should not aid and abet the Bahraini government’s continued repression of its own people. It is deeply troubling that the State Department has decided to lift its ban on certain arms sales to Bahrain while it continues to torture and imprison peaceful political protesters,” Wyden said.

MANAMA, Bahrain — Aug 6, 2015, 8:34 PM ET
Bahrain’s government has suspended the publication of the independent newspaper Al-Wasat.
The official Bahrain News Agency said in a brief statement issued Thursday night that the suspension is “due to its violation of the law and repeated dissemination of information that affects national unity and the Kingdom’s relationship with other countries.”
Brian Dooley of the Washington-based group Human Rights First called the paper’s suspended publication, “another seriously alarming, if predictable, move from the Bahraini government in silencing all opposition voices and crushing dissent.”
The paper was forced to shut down temporarily in 2011, in the aftermath of widespread unrest and pro-democracy protests. In April 2011, the paper’s co-founder, Karim Fakhrawy, was tortured to death in custody.
