This statement is issued in support of the Bahraini people’s struggle for freedom, justice and a dignified living, and in solidarity with the popular movement soldiering on in Bahrain since its instigation two years ago. Bahrainis, along with other Arab nations, called for freedom for all sects in peaceful demonstrations which demanded true political reforms that guarantee the realisation of freedom, democracy, respect for human rights, social justice and the establishment of a civil state.

 

Bahrain faces an excruciating reality. Ongoing grave violations of human rights are still beingcommitted against peaceful Bahrain citizens, with Bahraini security forces engaging in extrajudicial killings and thousands of men, women and children are detained, tortured anddismissed from their jobs.  A blatant policy of starvation is implemented, while repression,collective punishment and siege of villages exacerbate and residential areas are continuouslyflooded with toxic gasses, activists and opposition members are stripped from their citizenship, citizens deprived of their right to peaceful protest, mosques are demolished and doctors, lawyers, teachers and professionals are prosecuted.  All of the aforementioned abuses reflect the gravityof the human rights situation in Bahrain.

 

Moreover, the prosecution of activists and political leaders such as Nabeel Rajab, Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, S.Yousif Almuhafda and the Secretary General of the National Democratic Action Society (Waad) Mr. Ebrahim Sharif, clearly demonstrates the Bahrain regime’s failure and reluctance to genuinely implement the BICI’s recommendations.

 

In light of the media’s deliberate disregard of human rights violations in Bahrain, its distortion of the truth behind the popular movement and its double standards, we reiterate our commitment tothe dissemination of the genuine facts which reflect the reality of the serious violationscommitted against Bahraini people.  Ultimately, we will shed ample light on their legitimate demands via implementing the following action plan:

 

1. Declaring 14 February an international day of solidarity with the people of Bahrain and their just demands; 2. Supporting the peaceful legitimate struggle of the Bahraini people and their right to peaceful assembly, demonstration and freedom of thought and expression; 3. Demanding from the Bahraini authorities the immediate release of all prisoners of conscience, human rights activists and politicians, specifically activists Nabeel Rajab,Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, S.Yousif Almuhafda and Ebrahim Sharif; 4. Demanding influential regional and international parties to exert pressure on the Bahraini government to properly implement the BICI and Human Rights Councilrecommendations and to negotiate with the political opposition to establishcomprehensive reforms in Bahrain; and 5. The establishment of a youth committee comprising of the signatories to this statement for the purpose of monitoring the Bahraini people’s struggle to end the media siege andsupporting Bahrainis in attaining their just legitimate rights.
