Press TV News Analysis-Bahrain Uprising

PressTVGlobalNews | February 18, 2011

This edition of Press TV’s News Analysis is discussing the developments in Bahrain. Friday saw the funerals of those killed in that early morning attack on Pearl Square at 3a.m. on Thursday. The day saw those funerals turn into protests while the army stood by and watched. But as those funeral goers walked silently to the mosque for sunset prayers, everything took a violent turn. The army started firing live ammunition on the crowds, from behind. Many were injured, some are feared dead. We have spoken to eyewitnesses who were scared to give us their names. We have spoken to doctors, human rights activists and MPs on the ground and at the hospital. Emotional telephone cries desperately crying for help, in a state of shock. So what does this second violent day in Bahrain mean for the uprising there?

    • “Democracy” is a facade. At least in the developed economies. Perhaps Bolivia or Venezuela have real representative government that actually challenges the elite classes and imperial powers.
