On Wednesday of this week, February 14, thousands of people took to the streets in towns and cities in Bahrain to mark the 7th anniversary of the start of the protest movement in Bahrain. These protests began as part of the Arab Spring where working class communities demanded less exploitation, corruption and poverty. While the original protests in Bahrain were severely repressed, the movement has not been defeated. The demands from the protestors are for the royal family to resign, end the repression, end the discrimination, and free political prisoners.
