The Pearl Square Pearl Destroyed by the Bahrain Government

The Bahrain government today ordered the demolition of the symbol of freedom for the Bahrain people, the pearl statue in the centre of the square, Lulu Place in capital Manama, where the protesters have gathered during the last four weeks. Two days ago the military forced the protesters away from the square killing several people in the process and the king and his men consider the people once again subjugated.

‘We want to erase the bad memories,’ said Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid al-Khalifa to reporters in Manama.

Trust me, the people will remember the Pearl long after the foreign minister has been forgotten.
