Geneva, YJC. -- BS Calls for Complete Halt of Arms Trade with Manama, Demands Travel Ban on High Profile Bahraini Officials including King’s Sons, they called this in the United Nations Human Rights Council.
After three years of the unending pro-democracy protests in Bahrain, the BS finds that the systematic silence perpetrated by Western and Arab-sponsored media outlets has played a significant role in concealing the horrendous violations committed by the Al-Khalifa rule against peaceful unarmed protesters.
The BS stresses that the suspicious decision of Western and Arab-sponsored media to follow the Al-Khalifa regime’s lop-sided narrative of the events unfolding in Bahrain makes of those outlets complicit in criminal acts - especially as this decision seems to come in accordance with the media blockade imposed by the Al-Khalifa regime on independent media in the Kingdom.
We also believe that providing the regime with a smoke screen is enabling it to further carry on with its foreign-backed offensive against the Bahraini people and to continue with it daily violence and wholesale collective punishment on its population.
The BS would also like to assert yet a newer time, that the grave human rights violations, the denial of basic human and political rights as well as the denial of fundamental civil liberties are the true components that have birthed the Bahraini struggle.
