There is something VERY wrong when a King opens fire on his own people whom are peacefully protesting for change.
Here is some things we are protesting for:
* more jobs and housing
* the creation of a more representative and empowered parliament
* a new constitution written by the people
* a new cabinet that does not include Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, who has been in office for 40 years.
* the political prisoners to be released
(Nabeel Rajab, head of the Bahrainian human-rights group, said in a letter that the king could “avoid the fatal mistake committed” in Egypt and Tunisia by “the dissolving of the security apparatus” he said. There are more then 450 detainees)
