(SALEM, Ore.) - Police in Bahrain have killed at least one demonstrator today, showing the world that this island nation in the Person Gulf which has a very poor human rights record, lacks the ability to exhibit restraint when dealing with protesters.

On this otherwise peaceful day, pro-democracy demonstrators were attacked in the town of Duraz in Bahrain today, as police attacked with no regard for injuries or deaths.

According to contact we received today, those participating in the protest are calling for the abolition of Bahrain's 2002 Constitution. They want it replaced with a constitution written by the people. They want to see the government and prime ministers elected by the people directly.

Demonstrators say they also want their government to dissolve the Shura and Representatives, and the work of a new Parliament that has full legislative powers.

Bahrain is a monarchy, a police state, and a United States ally, with no oil, however there are thousands of American troops stationed there in the opinion of many, to prop up a failed despot.

Many thanks to YouTube user smohd92, a resident of Bahrain, for the original Arabic upload.
