Human Rights First presented an exhibit of art by Bahraini Children at the United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC this week. The images portray their grief and anger over the violence that has affected their families.
Each of the images was accompanied by some background information on the child and his or her situation. Child psychology experts examined the drawings and presented their hypotheses about each child’s emotional state.

The Bahrain Coordinating Committee held a candlelight vigil for the imprisoned Bahraini activist, Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, in front of the White House in Washington, DC this evening (April 27, 2012).
About a dozen volunteers assembled in front of the White House at dusk to peacefully show support for the activist and disseminate information about the struggle for human rights and reforms in Bahrain. Curious onlookers stopped by throughout the evening to learn more — the volunteers were able to converse at length with twenty-thirty people throughout the evening. The response of onlookers was positive and receptive.
