In Bahrain scores of activists continue to be imprisoned and investigations into cases of police torture and killing of civilians have not been sufficiently thorough. Maryam Al-Khawaja, Head of foreign relations at the Bahrain center for human rights spoke to Amnesty International on the repression her family and other human rights defenders in Bahrain are still facing on a daily basis.

  1. IF U GO INTO A CINEMA AND SHOUT "FIRE, FIRE" AND PEOPLE KILL EACH OTHER IN THE STAMPEDE U CANT SAY THIS IS MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THIS WOMAN, HER SISTER AND FATHER ARE BASICALLY TURDS AND PIMPLES ON THE BACK SIDE OF HUMANITY IN BAHRAIN. AS AN EXPAT LIVING AND WORKING IN BAHRAIN FOR MANY YEARS I KNOW WHAT THE COUNTRY HAS TO OFFER. WHAT THIS WOMAN SAYS AND CLAIM IS RUBBISH.

  2. 1) Whatever Gamer1Wolf said!
    2) Western media (which are also controlled by christians fontamentalists, conservatives, fascists or KKK) are cultivating islamophobia and arabophobia to the people! Do you think they would cover a muslim right activist and his hijabi wearing daughter? Of course not! That is contraticting in what they brainwash us -that they are all "drones of evil moon God" or "clones of Osama Bin Laden and Al Quaeda"!

  3. This lady is a fraud and so is her father. their gang is receiving financial support from extremist Shia organisations supported by Iran both locally and in a global scale. shame on amnesty to bring on such fake examples of activists and so called freedom fighters. i urge those NGO's to look at syria, a country that is truly in desperate need of help and support.

  4. 1) The Shia population, which makes up 70% of Bahrain, are the ones being brutally mistreated, and inexcusably oppressed. OF COURSE they are receiving aid from Shia organizations. How does this make this woman a fraud in ANY way???? How is she supposed to stay abroad safely and voice her story without some kind of support system? Pray, tell.
    2) NGO's ARE "looking" at Syria. Does the crisis in Syria constitute an exclusion of all other countries in need of help?

  5. this woman is a liar.. thats why she and her family are suffering and will continue to suffer..

    even mansoor jamri said about thir situation: The Al Khalifa rule is not that bad but once khwaja family and the likes take over, people will realize the khalifa rule was like heaven!

    laugh and shame on you maryam.. the always on going drums you beat about naturilized bahrainis, you too are naturalized!!! so be thankful!

  6. Few days back a group of so called freedom seekers have beaten an asian labour, why should freedom seekers do this, and on the other hand Amnesty and these activists keeps quiet!? Just wondering!.
    By the way 4 asian were killed and more than 900 Asian were attacked and about 5000 left their houses in the area where these people are rioting in till today in addition to their support to Bashar AlAssad who is killing around 30 human beings on daily basis sence about 2 years.
    How can we trust them??

  7. There will be democracy inshAllah in Bahrain and the rest of the middle east.No more dictatorship.No more slaves of Israel.Fuck the royal murderers.They need not exist!

  8. The people were enraged because of how they were being beaten,tortured and killed! This reaction ,which I strictly condemn, was triggered! Unarmed Bahraini citizens were shot and killed by foreign forces!

  9. I cant believe how much this girl lies. If you were given a penny for every time she lied, you'd be a millionaire.. no joke. Your father doesn't give a flying fuck about human rights, your father wants one thing P O W E R .. Bigot

  10. Maryam Al Khwaja where are you now that these so called freedom fighters are planting bombs and killing innocent people. You and your bloody wefaq thugs including your fraud father have blood on our hands of innocent people. What democracy or freedom do you talk about u get free education, health, housing allowance, inflation funds etc etc and your compalining cause you have some other agenda which is shiaism….please go to Iran and shove ur ass in khomeinis asshole u can freedom there…

  11. The main problem with people like the bitch in the video is that they fabricate and say look here is our evidence! But when we do bring them real evidence they say its fabricated! Seriously, how can we deal with such liars!!!!!

  12. No human rights or freedom of expression in Bahrain? Bahrain is the only GCC country still giving citizenship and has opposition party's. Yeah Bahrain's mistake to give you 'Shi'ite" people the citizenship. I seriously want to know what rights these creatures are talking about? Bahrain must revoke all Iranian "Shi'ite" citizenship and send them all back to Iran so these people know what is actually human rights violation means in Iran.

  13. I lived in Bahrain in 2002-2003 an American student going to school at Bahrain International school in Manama. I loved it there. I thought Bahrain was one of the nicest countries I'd ever been to, even went to school with the little Al-Khalifas. When I heard about the protest I was shocked. I can't speak for Bahraini's since I'm American but listening to what shes saying I have to disagree. I thought it was a very civilized country.

  14. Mrs. AlKhawaja appears so innocent and noble in her speech about 'Human rights', but torturing the very meaning of the words with the lies she is spreading and her agenda she is hiding behind 'Human Rights'. I have been for decades a stern supporter of AI, because there is a lot of injustice in the world. But Mrs.AlKhawaja and consorts are misusing it for there very own nefarious reasons. Bahrain Centre for Human Rights is a subsidiary of Iran based "Islamic Front for the Liberation of Bahrain"!

  15. wow just wow, I have never seen so much BULLSHIT in one vid! Bahrain is one of the best countries i have ever been in. you were all allowed to protest but you took it too far by running people over in the streets and throwing Molotov at everyone that didnt support you… every religion here has its full rights, every human being gets free health care, education and even free housing!! I would love to see you getting better else where so please return to what ever country you had "freedom" in

  16. Thats why the richest business men here are Persian shia? everyone here gets full rights no matter what religion they are… does the government need reform? I say a VERY big yes, but not cuz they are sectist but because the judicial system and most governmental sections are very badly organized, but still i really dont think it deserves that much of anger and violence that protesters have made.

  17. why is ok for all these dysfunctional people from various dysfunctional societies to flock to predominantly white countries… and rape them and their children… express hatred and contempt for white cultures and societies, and then demand to be cared for economically speaking on top of it all?

  18. it is better to keeps your shit in iran and let khomaini enjoy it. Please lets people have freedom and dignity here. No more shit are welcome here. thanks period
