Bahrain’s Inconvenient Revolution

Bahraini activist Maryam al-Khawaja compares and contrasts Bahrain’s uprising with those seen elsewhere during the Arab Spring. Unlike other nation’s protests,Bahrain’s was met with foreign intervention in support of the regime, as Saudi troops were sent to Bahrain to help crush the uprising. Al-Khawaja explains how demands for democratic reforms evolved into calls for the monarchy to step down, and tells the story of courageous protestors who expressed their rights to freedom of speech and protest in the face of violent oppression.
