A massive demonstration was held at "Freedom Square," west of the Bahraini capital Al-Manama, on the 4th of October.
It was held under the slogan, “National Competencies Behind Bars, " and it coincided with International Teacher Day, as the President of the Teachers Association, Mahdi Abudeeb, was also arrested on charges of demonstrating.
The demonstration was organized by the opposition's political associations.
Mr. Jaffer Kadhum, a leader in the Nationalist Democratic Assembly, and Jalilah Al-Salman, the Deputy General Secretary of the Bahraini Teachers Society, gave a speech talking about the professionally qualified people who are imprisoned, such as the superior student who got shot by the Bahraini security forces, and the latest story about doctors being arrested for treating protesters.
