Bahrain’s people gathered to commemorate 9th anniversary of the Feb.14

Bahrain’s people in the capital of the country and the other cities gathered to commemorate the anniversary of the February 14 uprising that erupted in 2011.

Protesters held posters that read slogans condemning the country’s king Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, emphsizing to continue their fight against the regime until victory.

The Barbar zone also witnessed similar demonstrations. Hundreds of local people came to streets despite the tight security measures.

Anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain regularly since February 2011.

They are demanding that the Al Khalifah dynasty relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.

Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist Bahrain in its crackdown.

Scores of Bahrain’s people have lost their lives and hundreds of others sustained injuries or got arrested as a result of the crackdown.
