IRISH ANTI WAR MOVEMENT – BULLETIN 12 JUNE 2012
• BAHRAINI DOCTOR TO SPEAK AT PROTEST TODAY AT 1PM AT ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS AND DÁIL EIREANN
The Irish Anti-war Movement (IAWM) is calling on its members and the general public to join in the protest organised by Witness Bahrain Ireland for today, Tuesday 12 June at 1pm, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), and later at Dáil Eireann, to highlight the plight of the Irish trained Bahraini doctors and other medical staff who are due to be sentenced in a few days time.
Dr. Nada Dhaif, who has flown in from Bahrain to highlight the mistreatment of the Irish trained medics, will speak at the protest and later at a Press Conference at 4pm in Buswells Hotel.
The IAWM condemn both the RCSI’s silence of this persecution of members of its Alumni and the silence of the Irish Government regarding the mistreatment of these Irish trained medics and of the general Bahraini population who are seeking justice and freedom from a corrupt dictatorial regime.
The Bahraini revolution has not received similar levels of interest and coverage of the revolutions in other Arab countries from western politicians and the media. The ordinary Bahrainis, including medical professionals doing their job of treating the wounded and saving lives, have suffered the most horrific repression, including killings, imprisonment and torture, from a despotic and corrupt regime.
Today’s protest will send a message of hope and support to the people of Bahrain – and the IAWM is calling on western powers to stop dealing with the despotic regimes of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and to support the ordinary peoples struggle for their basic human rights.
