On Sunday, demonstrations were held in the eastern town of Sitra, the northern village of Dair, located on the northern coast of Muharraq Island, and several other areas. 

Protesters chanted slogans against the Al Khalifa family and called for “freedom and regime change” in the country. 

Saudi-backed regime forces used tear gas to disperse the protesters. 

Bahraini protesters continue to call for an end to the Al Khalifa regime despite the government's severe suppression on peaceful demonstrations in the country. 

On Saturday, demonstrators took to the streets of the village of Muqsha, west of the capital, Manama. 

Dozens of people have been killed and thousands more have been arrested or fired from their jobs in Bahrain since the beginning of the uprising in February. 

State media announced on Saturday that Bahraini authorities had dropped charges relating to freedom of expression against “343 individual suspects in 34 cases” linked to anti-regime demonstrations in February and March. 

However, Matar Matar, a member of the main opposition group, al-Wefaq, censured the announcement, saying that it is “a media show, not linked to the application of the recommendations of the independent commission of inquiry.” 

The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry issued a report on November 23, saying that the Manama regime had used “excessive force including the extraction of forced confessions against detainees” in their attempts to choke the demonstrations in the country. 

On Wednesday, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay called on Bahraini authorities to “urgently take confidence-building measures including unconditionally releasing those who were convicted in military tribunals or are still awaiting trial for merely exercising their fundamental rights to freedom of expression and assembly.”
