On Friday 10th August 2018, Inminds human rights group will hold a vigil outside the Bahraini Embassy in London, in solidarity with Ali Mushaima's hunger strike to save his fathers life. Inminds will demand the unconditional release of Hassan Mushaima and all the other 5000 Bahraini prisoners of conscience languishing in the Al-Khalifa regimes dungeons. The vigil will also demand the British government end its complicity in the Al Khalifa dictatorship's crimes against the Bahraini people.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "The British government is directly responsible for the repression of the Bahraini people, the British government trained the thugs that abducted, tortured and imprisoned Ali Mushaima's father. Today Ali Mushaima is on hunger strike, endangering his life to fight for the life of his father. As citizens of this country it is our responsibility to speak up and demand the British government stop its support for the butcher of Bahrain, and act now to pressure the Bahraini regime to unconditionally and immediately release Hassan Mushaima and the 5000 other political prisoners caged in its dungeons!"

BACKGROUND

Ali Mushaima launched a hunger strike on1st August 2018 to save his father Hassan Mushaima's life. Ali is demanding his father be given urgently needed medical care, family visits (stopped 18 months ago), and access to books.

Hassan Mushaima is a leader of the 2011 mass movement that peacefully called for human rights and democratic reforms in Bahrain. The Khalifa dictatorship using British weapons and training, along with Saudi invading forces, brutally crushed the demonstrations, killing dozens and caging thousands. In March 2017 Hassan Mushaima along with other human rights defenders and opposition leaders were abducted, brutally tortured and given life sentences in mock trials simply for calling for democracy in Bahrain. Hassan Mushaima was horrifically tortured in Bahrain's notorious Jau prison that left him in need of surgery four times.

The UK government, ignoring the Bahraini regimes systematic abuses of human rights, has provided the dictatorship £51 million worth of arms in the last 4 years. After repeated denials by the UK government it was finally revealed that having gained experience of repressing protests in Northern Ireland, the British government has used that experience to train the Bahraini security forces in the tactics of ruthlessly crushing protests, use of attack dogs, cannons, and how to gather intelligence on protestors. To hide the training the UK government has cynically described it as 'protection of human rights training'. It has also been revealed that the UK trained the interrogators and prison guards at Jau prison, and other facilities where torture is rampant. Its the same Bahraini thugs who, having graduated from the British training course, are guilt of widespread human right abuses including murdering peaceful protestors, and torturing women and children. Soon after the training, teenager Ali al-Singace was abducted by the Bahraini police and severally tortured with electric shocks and forced to make a false confession for which he was executed by firing squad in January 2017.

"You cannot simplify the question of violence.. You look at human history - the American revolution, the civil war, the end of slavery in the United States, the African National Congress, the end of colonialism - by and large these were some combination of popular social uprisings and social movements and non-violent protests AND armed resistance. Now that doesn't mean I'm advocating for any armed action today, I'm not. I'm committed to finding ways of acting and speaking and making people laugh and doing art and disrupting the war machine in other ways, but I think focusing on violence when we have the comfort of being protected by mass of armed violence is not non-violence at all.. if you are pointing to the mass of violence and who's doing the mass of violence in the world today, you have to look to state violence - that's people bombing whole cities from the air.. "
