Tweets about the Friday March in Manama (September 7, 2012)

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” Benjamin Franklin

Manama will be different today.. It will welcome its guests from all over Bahrain who will take place in the proposed march

I picture Manama today as I recall it in Ashoura each year. Its streets embracing the huge amount of visitors

People will go to Manama today to apply one of Imam Hussain’s principles: Saying “NO!” – rejecting oppression  

Those marching in Manama today may not have the same demands but they all reject the perverse reality in Bahrain

Go to Manama to say: We reject our stolen rights, our history’s falsification, & our treatment as 2nd class citizens in Bahrain

REJECT: deterioration of services, unfair trials, security clampdown, militarization of media, suppression, ill-treatment of women Bahrain

REJECT: monopolization of political authority & decision-making, naturalization, sectarianism, acquisition of Bahrain’s resources
