EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Two US Citizens were deported by Bahraini security forces on Friday early morning following their arrest from the car of the President of the Bahrain Human Rights Center, Nabeel Rajab. Another American national and an independent Irish national were arrested later on Friday during a peaceful protest on the way to the Pearl Roundabout. Protesters had tried multiple times to march into the city center to reestablish a presence of nonviolent, peaceful protest on the one year anniversary of the Arab Spring uprising in Bahrain.

Codepink anti-war activist Tighe Barry and Vietnam veteran Billy Kelly, were arrested from Rajab’s care and were deported late Thursday night.
“I feel honored to have spent time in Bahrain to learn from these wonderful people just how much they are suffering under this repressive government,” said Tighe Barry of the anti-war organization CODEPINK. “The government is deporting me to try to stop me from hearing their stories, but I will now go to Washington DC to share these appalling first-hand account with U.S. government officials and insist that they do more to pressure the Bahraini regime to stop being a gross human rights violator.”
