The Arab Revolt of 2011 is unabated. Protests continue in such unlikely places as Bahrain. On Valentine’s Day, a protest march in Manama had no love for the al-Khalifah royals. It wanted to deliver its message. 'Our demand is a constitution written by the people,' the protestors chanted. Opposition leader Abdul Wahab Hussain told the press, 'The number of riot police is huge, but we have shown using violence against us only makes us stronger.' The police fired rubber bullets and dispersed the as yet small crowd." (02/15/11)
