It's been exactly one year since #Feb14 became the online rallying cry of citizens in Bahrain. What's happened since then and a thank you to the Twitter users who helped us track the uprising and the violent suppression that followed.
First they came for the human rights activists. Now, Bahraini authorities are looking to censor the media. In the meantime, the rights community is showing exasperation with perceived American passivity.
Things are simply not getting better in Bahrain. A prominent blogger is arrested and Bahraini forces unleash fury on wounded protesters in a hospital.
You basically have a situation in Bahrain where one American ally has asked other American allies in the Gulf to use their American weapons to suppress a popular rebellion.
Various wires and news sources are reporting that foreign soldiers, possibly from Saudi Arabia, are moving in to suppress the largely peaceful protests in Bahrain.
In Bahrain today, a geo-strategic ally of the United States has massacred its own people. Meanwhile, in New York, the United States cast a lone veto on a resolution condemning new Israeli settlement construction.
Like in Tunisia and Egypt, social media is playing a key organizing role for the Bahrain protests and providing useful updates for people to follow the events in real time.
