SHAFAQNA-They were held to honor the memory of the demonstrators killed by Al Khalifa regime’s security forces on Thursday, February 18, 2011, the fourth day of their national uprising.
Bahrain security forces launched a pre-dawn raid on that day to clear the capital Manama’s iconic Pearl Square of camping protesters.
During the brutal attack on the peaceful protesters, at least four people were killed and hundreds of others were injured.
The Wednesday demonstrators called for the perpetrators of the Bloody Thursday atrocities to be brought to justice.
They also underlined the continuation of the Persian Gulf country’s popular movement until the Bahraini people’s legitimate demands are met.
The popular uprising in Bahraini began on February 14, 2011. Since then, thousands of protesters have been waging regular mass rallies in the US-backed Persian Gulf country.
The protesters are demanding the downfall of Al Khalifah family and the establishment of a democratically-elected government.
