Revolution in Bahrain goes unreported

Recommended Posts

When the Arab Democratic Revolution spread to Bahrain in early March, the people congregated around Pearl Roundabout, an iconic public thorofare, and they experienced freedom for a few days.

But with the support of Saudi Arabia, UAE and Quatar, whose government owns the Al Jezeera TV network, the revolution was violently crushed, with little notice by the mainstream media, including Al Jezeera.

After killing or arresting many of the leaders of the non-violent revolution, including Bahrain football star Alha Huaail and poet Ayat Al aurmezi, as well as the lawyers who supported the revolt and doctors who cared for those wounded, the government actually destroyed the iconic Pearl Roundabout statute, now a symbol of the revolution.

Revolutionary Program: Bahrain's Revolution Quashed by Regime?

One Al Jezerra reporter however, stuck it out in Bahrain and continued filming, leading to this hour long chronicle of the democratic revolution and its suppression - Shouting In the Dark, which has only been released through Al Jezerra English, just recently made available in NYC.

Al Jezerra however, refuses to show Shouting In the Dark in any Arab country.
