Tuesday, 14 February marks the one-year anniversary of Bahrain’s uprising. But as IFEX has recently reported, human rights violations continue daily: peaceful protests are met with bullets, tanks and teargas while human rights defenders remain unjustly jailed – some of them sentenced to life in prison merely for calling for peaceful reform.
While weapons are being sent to Manama we choose to honour the people of Bahrain by sending flowers in recognition of their continued struggle for human rights. Let them know that you support their quest to peacefully exercise their right to freedom of expression – whether in the streets, online, through music, writing or poetry – without fear of harm.
Post the virtual flower for peace below (click to download the full-size image) on your website, Facebook and Twitter – ask your friends to do the same.
