There have been demonstration here for years over high cost of living.
The de facto imbalance between the ruling family and Sunni Moslems against
the majority Shiite Moslems in the Island which now is linked physically to
Saudi Arabia hence the strong arm tactics against the protesters from the Suadi military.
Invited by the ruling family. Indeed, I am ashamed to say , a scotsman was one of the most
feared leader of the Secret police on the island for many decades. His scottish parents
moved overseas and he may have been born overseas. However, the protests continue as do
the deaths and torture of the protesters. Pearl roundabout was bulldozed away as it had
become synonymous with the protests and was an icon of the country prior to that Indeed a
crane driver who toppled the monument was killed in the process.
