Murder on the streets of Manama, Bahrain

It was disturbing to watch the government security forces of Bahrain killing unarmed civilians on the streets of Manama.  It was murder, state organized murder.  People were killed by men from armed vehicles firing at civilians on the streets.  They were killed without a trial or due process of law. There was clearly a shoot to kill policy.  The treatment of medical staff has also been totally unacceptable.  Criminals and political gangsters are running the country.

I now understand that similar events have been occurring in Yemen.  Many protesters in University Square, Sanaa, have been shot.   Security forces are believed to be behind the bloodshed and violent repression of the protests.

More information can be found on the International Trade Union Confederation website.
