The struggle in Bahrain continues

This wall in the village of Malkiya, Bahrain is spray painted with images of jailed democracy activists. The caption on this photo of a protest said, “Clashes broke out after a march demanding democracy & that prisoners be freed”--as if police assaults on protestors caused spontaneous combustion. Media reports of the Bahrain uprising ignore the massive protests & most often depict young people with petrol bombs; they don’t show the excessive use of tear gas by riot cops which has caused serious injuries, health problems, & deaths. All solidarity with the protestors of Bahrain who use the only weapons they have to bring down tyranny.  (Photo by Hasan Jamali/AP)
