Dear Kae,Thank you so much, i couldn't ask for more than what you have allready don. I need also to state that since 2 am (two hours ago) the army started arresting opposition leaders, though I am not in any political party but my plea for help will get me in trouble. If I didn't get back by sending an  email  within 24 hours that would mean I have been taken by the army.Thank you again.
Bless you allSawsan

Dear Sawsan,

Thank you for your email--both yesterday's and today's. I am an American PhD student at SOAS but currently residing in Alaska. I sent your email to as many places as I could think--the New York Times, the LA Times, National Public Radio, the Huffington Post, the Associate Press, the Office for the High Commission on Human Rights, photojournalist friends, a friend who works for the US Government and was formerly stationed in Bahrain, and a few influential women. It's small, but it's all that I can do in my position. I am very, very sorry that you are going through this. But please, keep raising your voice and sending us information as you get it. 


Best,
Kate

Dear all,Thank you very much for your great support and various attempts to help Bahraini people. The arab and many western media turn a total blind eyes to what is happening in Bahrain, including AlJazeers.  Your support gives me courage to stand up and help my people and strengthens my believe in the true goodness of humankind.



 With your permission, I am attaching a letter by WLP which summarizes what happened today in Bahrain. 

If I have your permission, I would like to send you images, some of which taken by students, as the media is not covering, and footages of the suppression of the pro-democracy movement in Bahrain. Some of the pictures are very graphic. I need your permission before sending them.   



On Sunday 13, March 2011, Bahrain University students where attacked by the government militia, dressed as civilians, while protesting. It was violent and aggressive. Students where attacked by swords, bats, steel bars, and knifes. I was with the students during the attack.There mare many people missing since the attack early morning, including some injured civilians. 



A state of emergency and curfew have been declared in Bahrain. 



Than you again. bless you all.

Sawsan Karimi

            http://www.learningpartnership.org/lib/violent-crackdown-against-protesters-bahrain-hospitals-also-targeted





            WLP has just received the following appeal from our colleagues in Bahrain:Civil society organizations in Bahrain are appealing for support, as developments in the country today have led to serious safety risks for citizens who have been protesting for democratic change since February 14.





            Bahrain has been witnessing mass attacks by riot police, armed militia, and most recently Bahraini armed forces and Saudi-Gulf forces, against unarmed civilian protesters in the Shia areas of Manama, Muhraq, Sitra, Hamad, and most of the northern and middle region along Budaya Road. The violence culminated with a serious attack on Sitra Island on Tuesday, which left three dead and hundreds wounded.





            At dawn on Wednesday, military forces carried out a sweeping attack in Lulu Circle (Martyr Square), where, in addition to riot police, Bahraini and Saudi armed forces fired on protesters using live ammunition and tear gas, while Apache helicopters circled the area.





            On both days, ambulances from central Salmaniya hospital were prevented from taking casualties, and hospital staff were assaulted. In Sitra, the local medical center was attacked and overtaken by the militia. In Lulu Circle, ambulances were barred, Salmanya hospital was attacked by riot police, and many patients were arrested. Additionally, electricity was cut off in Lulu Circle and all surrounding areas, including Salmaniya hospital, and mobile phone service was cut off in the northern region of the country throughout the morning.





            We appeal to The Security Council, The United Nations, The Arab League, and the international community, to curb these attacks, and to help end this violence. We also appeal to relief agencies such as the International Rescue Committee, Medecins Sans Frontieres, and the Arab and International Red Crescent and Red Cross, to intervene to break the siege of hospitals and assaults against medical staff.
