Anti-government Bahraini protesters chant slogans and wave national flags in Muqsha near the capital city of Manama on Wednesday, March 7, 2012.
Bahraini protesters have taken to the streets all over the country to call for the ouster of Al Khalifa regime, Press TV reports. Prominent Bahraini human rights activist, Nabeel Rajab, led a massive anti-regime demonstration in Meqsha near the capital city of Manama on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, people held a candlelight vigil in memory of Mohammad Ibrahim, a Bahraini male, who was killed by Saudi-backed Al Khalifa forces in January.
Also, a huge nightly demonstration was held in the village of Nabih Saleh in eastern Bahrain, with protesters expressing solidarity with Bahraini opposition leaders.
Protesters have also vowed to hold further mass demonstration on Friday.
In a popular revolution, thousands of anti-government protesters have been staging peaceful demonstrations across the Persian Gulf island since February 2011, demanding that the Al Khalifa dynasty relinquish power.
On March 14, 2011, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates deployed troops to the sheikdom at Manama’s request to help the Bahraini security forces crush the nationwide protests.
Scores of people have been killed and many more arrested in the Saudi-backed crackdown.
