Bahrain has a free elected parliment where men and women can vote and through their representatives, all issues and concerns are raised.
Deomonstartions are allowed as long as its done in an organised matter where date, time and location must be given.

Read about the major reforms Bahrain has gone through in the last 10 years under King Hamad then tell me its another Lybia or Syria.

@Bahrain F1

So peaceful is allowed in Bahrain right? So what happened to the peaceful protesters at the Pearl Roundabout? or the suppression of the anti government movement based on censorship, intimidation and torture? or even the deaths in custody of those arrested, does that sound like Bahrain's free and open? You think I'm making this up? I wish I was but thats what happening you need to open your eyes, then you'll realise why hosting F1 in a country that allows this to happen is morally wrong.
