Bahrain regime represents modern feudalism: Rodney Shakespear [video]

October 29, 2012

The Bahraini Al Khalifa monarchy serves only its own interests, representing a form of feudalism which usurps the people, a prominent political analyst tells Press TV.

Bahraini protesters have once again held demonstrations against the Al Khalifa regime in several towns on Friday after the Eid al-Adha prayers, with protesters calling for the downfall of the Manama regime.

The demonstrators also demanded an end to the regime’s violent crackdown on peaceful protests.

Bahrain’s revolution began in mid-February 2011. The government promptly launched a brutal crackdown on the protests and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring Persian Gulf states to help crush the demonstrations.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Rodney Shakespeare, chairman of the Committee against Torture in Bahrain, from London, to further discuss the issue.
