Interview with Professor Mohamed Alibovlash - former detainee and political activist.
Huge crowds gathered for a massive rally on Friday, August 31st, on the Budaiya Highway west of the capital of Manama, Bahrain. The demonstration occurs prior to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, which will take place in mid September, where human rights abuses committed by Bahraini security forces will be addressed. The protesters call for freedom and democracy, the election of a government that represents the will of the people, and immediate release of all prisoners of conscience, human rights activists, and children detained in Bahraini prisons.
