Down Down Jazeera!

A pro-democracy demonstration in the Bahraini capital Manama which travelled from opposite the Bahrain World Trade Centre towers, passing along the Bahrain Financial Harbour and ending at the spiritual centre of the demonstrations, Pearl Roundabout. Main demands of the demo was the firing of the Cabinet and sweeping reforms in the country. Pro-democracy demonstration started at the World Trade Centre and moved along the King Faisal highway - the main artery through the capital Manama - to the symbolic centre of the protest the Pearl Roundabout. Many thousands joined the procession chanting various slogans, chief amongst them is the demand for the dismissal of the cabinet chaired by the 39-year-serving prime minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa.


When the crowd noticed an Al-Jazeera correspondant, they shouted "down-down Jazeera" as they believe they were not given the rightful coverage in Jazeera as it had dedicated to both Egypt and Tunisia
