People have taken to the streets in Bahrain’s northeastern island of Sitra to stage a demonstration against the Al Khalifa regime’s repression.

On Monday, the protesters shouted anti-regime slogans and called for the release of political prisoners in the Persian Gulf kingdom.

Meanwhile, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, the country’s main opposition bloc, slammed the regime’s arrest and torture of political activists.

The bloc also called on the country’s pro-democracy protesters to keep up with their protests against the ruling royal family.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.

On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates invaded the country to assist the Bahraini government in its crackdown on peaceful protesters.

According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested.

On June 10, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) censured the Manama regime for human rights violations in the country. A total of 46 members of the international body expressed deep concern over the Al Khalifa regime’s crackdown on peaceful protesters.
