Free Ali: Protest #2

Tuesday, March 01, 2005

As stated this morning, the second demonstration in support of the three detained BahrainOnline.org moderators was held this afternoon outside the Public Prosecution building. Again, because it was announced so late (this morning), and it was a weekday, the numbers were the same as yesterday's demonstration: about 50 people. But they did have plenty of signs today.

Neither Ali's brother nor Ali's wife have been given permission to see him so far today. At the time of the protest Ali, Hussain and Mohammed were being interrogated inside the Prosecution building.

At a meeting last night it was decided that a committee to support the three detainees would be set up, and a meeting is planned for tonight to select its leaders. They're planning on continuing this series of demonstrations outside the Public Prosecutor's office, and possibly also hold a demonstration in the Seef area in the evening.


As you can tell from the signs being held in the photos, people are very pissed off at the Public Prosecutor, and rightly so in my opinion. And this isn't the first time that anyone has demonstrated against him: just last month three civil groups protested outside the building demanding his resignation over several stupid government prosecutions, including that of Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja. The detention of the BahrainOnline gang has only invigorated the calls for his removal. If at the end of this crisis some heads don't roll high up in the government, I will be very disappointed to say the least.
