Hands off Bahrain!

By New Worker correspondent

Demonstrators were outside Downing Street last week protesting against British imperialism’s continuing support for the feudal Arab monarchy that is propped up by Saudi guns whilst holding its people in bondage. British imperialism returned to the former British protectorate last year with the construction of a new Royal Navy base on the oil-rich island in the Persian Gulf. The feudal Arab Khalifa family suppressed a popular uprising in 2011 with the help of Saudi troops and police from the other feudal Arab states. The Shia Muslim majority is denied civil rights and thousands of political prisoners languish in Bahraini dungeons.
