Bahrain Roundup: Updates from Bahrain
On Friday, March 9th, a massive demonstration was held in Bahrain to protest the lack of political reform and the ongoing repression of pro-democracy and human rights protesters.
At this protest, there were calls for Abdulhadi's release and signs and pictures in support of Abdulhadi (pictures below). The head of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI), who is preparing a report on the implementation of the BICI Report and recommendations, spoke about the lack of progress in the country. The day before the protest, the internet-activist group Anonymous released this video in support of pro-democracy activists and human rights defenders in Bahrain.
