Tonight marks 8 years since my father was beaten unconscious in front of my family and taken. 8 years he’s been in prison, severely tortured, for being a human rights defender. For wanting human rights and democracy. For wanting freedom and liberty #Bahrain #DKPol
Sitting on a train in #US, I read tweet after tweet frm my sister, how they took my father, how they beat him, & I mostly felt guilt. Guilt for not being there. Guilt for not protecting my family. As irrational as it is, guilt bcz I thought if I was there they wud take me instead
Today it feels more settled, but it’s the same pain, the same hurt, every day my father, and thousands others, sit in those prison cells, we feel guilt for not having been able to get them out, for being free while they continue to be imprisoned

01. We are surprised that the fact that 4 Catalan leaders are following a #HungerStrike to for the sake of their political and #humanrights is not getting enough press coverage abroad.

They are putting their lives in jeopardy to fight for what is right.

02. @jordialapreso, @jorditurull, @quimforn and @joseprull have been in pre-trial detention for over a year, facing charges (which countries such as Germany, Belgium or Switzerland fail to see) of rebellion and sedition.
03. Associations such as @hrw, @amnesty or @omctorg have deemed, several times, their pre-trial imprisonement as unfair, and have asked for their immediate release.
