Bahrain: Avoid Unauthorised Protests Between 13-14 March
Between 13-14 March, a series of unauthorized protests are expected to take place across Bahrain. The February 14 Youth Coalition is calling for supporters to carry out acts of civil disobedience to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the deployment of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC’s) Peninsula Shield Force into the country. Further associated protests and business disruptions are possible in the coming days. Heightened security measures and local disruptions to overland travel in the vicinity of any protests should be expected throughout the country. Security forces are likely to use tear gas and other means of force to disperse anti-government demonstrations, which may result in clashes between protesters and security forces.
