Dozens march in Ma'ameer to commemorate "victims of the regime"

  • comments

Dozens of anti-government protesters took to the streets of Ma'ameer on Tuesday evening to commemorate the victims of the regime.

The protesters held candles and pictures of the victims including 16-year-old Ali Abbas Radhi, whom activists say was killed on Friday when he was hit by a car as he was being chased by Bahraini police forces.

According to activists 82 people have died since the beginning of the uprising in February 2011. This number cannot be verified as foreign media and rights organizations are regularly denied entry into the country.

Despite a ban on opposition rallies imposed by the Bahraini government earlier this month, protesters continue demonstrating every day in the Gulf nation.

Bahrain's Shi'ite community has been demanding democratic reforms for more than a year now. They say they feel marginalized by the Sunni regime, which has been in power for more than 200 years.
