Bahrain regime’s Internet sabotage

Bahrain ‘internet curfew’ for village, say activists | Short News

Summary of news on ‘Bahrain ‘internet curfew’ for village, say activists’.

Source: BBC

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Friday 5th August 2016

NIGHTLY disruption of internet access in a district where Shi’ite cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim lives appears deliberate, the Bahrain Watch human rights group said yesterday.

Human rights activists, journalists, Shi’ite leaders and others have been imprisoned or forced into exile in a severe clampdown on dissent in the island which suffers under a despotic Sunni feudal monarchy.

Bahrain Watch suggests that the internet slowdown is intended to disrupt protesters in the Diraz neighbourhood, where they have demonstrated in support of Mr Isa Qassim, who had his citizenship removed in June over government allegations of fanning extremism.

Locals in Diraz have complained that online traffic slows to less than a crawl on mobile phones and some fixed-line internet connections, said Bahrain Watch.

During Bahrain’s 2011 democracy protests, internet traffic in and out of the country dropped by 20 per cent.

Bahraini government officials did not respond to requests for comment.

United States bird webcams, video


This video from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA says about itself:

A Look Back at 2015 on Cornell Lab’s Bird Cams

21 July 2016

Last year, our cams took us to places far and wide, showed us the joys and challenges of being a wild bird, and helped us connect with each other. As we approach the spring, join us in taking a look back at the experiences that brought us together. Thank you and keep watching!

Check out all of our cams here.
