The lifting of Martial Law by the Bahraini King has not yeilded the desired results as the protesters are on the streets again. The security forces are after them and using all types of measures to disperse them. Martial Law was imposed by the Bahraini King in March when the anti government protests had grown out of control. The government even had to call 1,500 troops from a Saudi-led Gulf force to help suppress the unrest when emergency rule was imposed.
Despite the lifting of martial law on Wednesday, regime forces fired tear gas on protesters who had poured into the streets to stage protest rallies in villages around Manama, including Diraz, Bani Jamrah and Karzakan, according to witnesses.
The protests started in March when the protesters got inspired to rise up by other revolutions sweeping Arab nations around the Middle East and North Africa. The protesters are being led by the Shia majority against the minority Sunni rulers. During these protests nearly 30 people were killed.
The main demand of the protesters is more freedom and more rights.
