Bahraini protests continue

These masked teens in Bilad al-Qadeem, Bahrain, are setting up roadblocks to prevent riot police vehicles from chasing after a protest march that just passed by (on Saturday). Protestors, who were marching despite violent police repression, were demanding freedom for jailed students & the jailed leader of the teachers union (Mahdi Abu Deeb). These kids are probably the rear guard of an action led by their mothers who are playing such a central role in this revolution. And their mommas taught them right: not just how to build roadblocks but how to stand up & courageously defy tyranny. (Photo by Hasan Jamali/AP)
