Solidarity with the freedom fighters of Bahrain!

Aren’t these Bahraini women something!? In most places, it’s the kids burning tires as political barriers against riot cops. In Bahrain it’s the mothers. Here they are chanting support for imprisoned political activists in Jidhafs, a village near Manama (April 15th).

In response to the orgy of Islamophobia we will be subjected to after the Boston bombings, we can point to the intransigent freedom fighters of Bahrain. Our fullest respect & solidarity with their opposition to tyranny which shows no sign of flagging after more than two years of relentless struggle & violent repression.
