Bahrain’s Grand Prix Sparks Human Rights Protests

Formula 1’s annual Bahrain Grand Prix opened April 17 to global fanfare, but demonstrators in the small Gulf kingdom off the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia have been protesting the motorsports event for weeks, accusing Formula 1’s management of ignoring longstanding human rights abuses in the country.

This year’s race comes at an awkward time for Bahrain’s ruling al Khalifa family. On April 2, Nabeel Rajab — one of the country’s most prominent human rights activists — was arrested on charges of insulting the kingdom. VICE News was with Rajab shortly before his arrest, when he accused Western governments of turning a blind eye to Bahraini government abuse.

Back in London, activists continue to rally against Britain’s conduct in Bahrain. VICE News met up with members of the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy as they protested the arrival of Prince Nassar bin Hamad al Khalifa — nicknamed the “Playboy Prince” — who has been accused of being involved with the torture of political prisoners.

Six Months in Jail for a Tweet: Bahrain Update

On January 20, Bahrain sentenced its most prominent human rights activist to six months in jail — for a tweet. Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, was convicted of insulting the Bahraini government under Article 216 of the country’s strict penal code.

VICE News was with Nabeel at his home, when he received his verdict. He had some harsh words for Britain, one of Bahrain’s closest foreign allies.

In December, the UK announced a landmark agreement to build a new naval base in Bahrain at the cost of 15 million pound sterling ($22.8 million). In a statement to VICE News, a spokesperson at the UK Foreign Office said, “The UK government is supporting the government of Bahrain in its reform program, including work to help Bahrain strengthen its human rights and justice sector.”

Bahrain: More Bloodshed

Watch “Bahrain: An Inconvenient Uprising” – http://bit.ly/11uAes9

Earlier this year, VICE News correspondent Ben Anderson traveled to Bahrain undercover to document the ongoing protests there. Bahrainis — inspired by the Arab Spring — have been taking to the streets every night for almost four years, calling for democracy.

One of the people Ben interviewed was Yousif Badah. His son, Ali Badah, was killed while protesting three years ago, when a police SUV repeatedly ran into him, pinning him against a wall.

On the third anniversary of his son’s death, Yousif and others held a vigil for Ali. That vigil turned into a march, and was similarly met with police violence, this time resulting in injury to Yousif himself.

Bahrain: An Inconvenient Uprising (Extra Scene)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Like many countries in the Middle East and beyond, Bahrain erupted with anti-authoritarian protests in 2011 when the Arab Spring took the region and many of its repressive leaders by surprise.

While Arab Spring uprisings found favor with many in the West, unfortunately for the people of Bahrain, their own revolution was largely forgotten. But it never went away — for three years, near-nightly protests have been brutally quashed by militarized security forces.

Earlier this year, VICE News correspondent Ben Anderson travelled to London to speak with Nabeel Rajab, the unofficial leader of Bahrain’s uprising, and then headed undercover to Bahrain, where he met activists, protestors, grieving parents, and alleged torture victims.
