The demonstrators called for the immediate release of prisoners and demanded a full withdrawal of all Saudi forces who invaded the Persian Gulf island on March 14 to assist the Bahraini government crush anti-regime protests. 

Activists also called for a massive turnout of protesters across the country on Friday.
