Opposition says that today’s planned peaceful demonstration will take place despite ban

Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior stated that an opposition rally planned to take place on Friday is unauthorized and that legal measures will be taken against the participants.  Will we see more crackdowns and brutality in Bahrain?  Yesterday, citizens were assaulted yet again with tear gas, shot gun pellets, and sound bombs.

However, the opposition remains undaunted.  The demonstration, they say, will take place from Bilad Al Qadeem to Sehla. 

The opposition’s message?  “Our unity will defeat you.”

The Bahrain Coordinating Committee supports the right of free assembly and speech, and deplores the use of tear gas and shot gun pellets against citizens and activists.

Stay tuned for more updates and details.
