The small Gulf kingdom Bahrain is a bloody dictatorship. Nevertheless, over 100,000 people demonstrated for freedom in the Occupy Bahrain demonstration.

A video from Bahrain says about itself:

Occupy Bahrain: The largest demonstration in Bahrain. We are the 99%.

More than 700 thousand citizens demanding to achieve self-determination, freedom and democracy and the rejection of dictatorship.

Friday, March 9, 2012.

Bahrain offers a perfect example of an absolute monarchical crackdown, with an information blackout achieved through an impressive arsenal of repressive measures: exclusion of the foreign media, harassment of human rights defenders, arrests of bloggers and netizens (one of whom died behind bars), prosecutions and defamation campaigns against free expression activists, disruption of communications.
