7 Years Revolution - Guerilla Projection On Bahrain Embassy London [+]

To mark the 7th anniversary of the uprising of the Bahraini people against the brutal Khalifa dictatorship, Inminds human rights group along with the Islamic Human Rights Commission held a guerilla projection on the walls of the Bahraini Embassy in London on 11th February 2018.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "We are here to call for the end of the Khalifa dictatorship and freedom for the people of Bahrain. The revolution is in its seventh year. It has endured seven years of brutal suppression. Troops from Saudi Arabia, UAE and Jordan have invaded the tiny island to try and prop up the dictatorship. The British government has shamefully provided over £51 million worth of arms to the dictatorship since the uprising to help crush it, it has also provided training by the elite Lima Company of 42 Commando Royal Marines to the regimes troops who indiscriminately kill Bahrainis, including children as young as 6 years old, and it also trains the regimes police force which the regimes own inquiry admits tortures people. Yet despite all this support, the regime is floundering and the revolution is strengthening every day. Victory is inevitable, but its our duty to lessen the cost of that victory on the Bahraini people by pressuring our government to end its support for this vile regime."

The projection called for the fall of the Khalifa dictatorship and freedom for the people of Bahrain. It highlighted the plight of the Bahraini people - the torture of women activists like Ebtisam al-Sayegh, the imprisonment of human rights defenders like Nabeel Rajab and Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, and the extrajudicial murder of the youth like Sami Mushaima, Abbas Jamil Tahir al-Sami’ and Ali Abdulshahid al-Singace who were executed one year ago on Jan 15th 2017 after enduring 3 weeks of barbaric torture.

The projection also touched on the sectarian persecution of the community by the Khalifa dictatorship, including persecution of its leaders like Ayatullah Sheikh Isa Ahmed Qassim. Over 50 mosques have been destroyed by the Khalifa dictatorship in 2011 as part of their repression of Bahrain's Shia majority. This includes the 400-year-old Sheikh Mohammed Barbaghi mosque in Aali, an image of its destruction was projected with the words 'Our Faith Strengthens With Your Sectarian Persecution'.

She was savagely beaten and had to be rushed to hospital after the interrogation. Al-Sayegh told Amnesty: “The men told me ‘no one can protect you’. They took away my humanity, I was weak prey to them.”

"They [Met Police] initially denied it, that they had sent officers to Israel to find out how to deal with suicide bombers. When I asked them would you have done the same thing after the Brixton riots and sent people to South Africa (under the apartheid regime) to find out how to deal with black people? They didn't have an answer. I asked the question 'do you have a shoot to kill policy?', they said no they didn't, over a number of years, and then it was finally, tragically, proven that they did have.. we finally cut our ties [ceased meetings with the Met Police in protest], I came out thinking of the police as insincere, hypocritical, having double standards."
