Urgent Appeal

A group of Human Rights activists went to The United Nations building in Bahrain to protect themselves from the continuous harassments of the government but the Head of the United Nations office in Bahrain, Mr. Alloush, considered this an invasion of a governmental building and called for security forces to remove them by force.

We request from the Human Rights Organizations to interfere and send an urgent appeal to Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to prevent Mr. Alloush from calling for the security forces for they will bein grave danger should the forces attack while they are inside.

The Activists inside the building:
1. Abdulhadi AlKhawaja – President of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR)
2. AbdulRaof Alshayeb – National Committee of Martyrs and Victims of Torture
3. Layla Dashti – HR Activist
4. Hassan AbdulNabi – Unemployed Committee
5. Mohsin AlSalman – Unemployed Committee
6. Sayyed Sharaf Elsitri - Bahrain Youth Society For Human Rights(BYSHR)
7. Hassan AlHaddad – HR Activist
8. AbdulRedha Abdulla – HR Activist
9. Nader Ibrahim – HR Activist

It should be noted that this is the 15th day that Abdulhadi Alkhawaja is on hunger strike and he was taken to the hospital today where he was told that his heart rate has gone down and his blood pressure is low.
