Bahraini anti-government protesters have overrun Pearl Square, in the capital Manama, for the past three days in a call for major changes to the nation's political system.
In light of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak handing power to the military only days ago, Bahrain's citizens are attempting to emulate the changes made in Tahrir Square.
Here is a clip of riot police shooting at Bahraini protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets. Once shooting begins, the person with the camera runs backward faster than those going forward:
A number of protesters were wounded this week.
Two have also been killed. A rubber bullet fatally wounded a 21-year-old man on Monday and another man was shot and killed the following day at a funeral march to protest the death of the first man.
Is the Middle East falling apart, or is it finally being put back together?
Tunisia fell. Egypt fell. Bahrain may fall. So could Libya and Yemen. Iranian protesters are facing violence from pro-government supporters, which has already caused one death. Syrians are too lazy to protest. There have also been protests in Jordan and Algeria but 'failed to make headlines' due to lack of bloodshed.
The more protests there are, the more graffiti will be used to spread the message.
Just waiting for Banksy and Above to move in and exploit it.
Mubarak steps down, Egypt is free
Egyptians protest, riot against Hosni Mubarak
