Tell Obama: Urge Bahrain to Release Jailed Dissidents
Two years ago, President Barack Obama told the Bahraini government “the only way forward is for the government and opposition to engage in a dialogue, and you can’t have a real dialogue when parts of the peaceful opposition are in jail.”
The regime restarted its dialogue with some opposition groups last week. This is an encouraging step, but real progress will only happen if the regime releases its prominent dissidents from jail and allows them to join the dialogue.
Urge President Obama to demand that the Bahraini Kingdom release dissidents jailed on politically motivated charges.
