Support Bahraini Students
When protesters in Bahrain called for one person one vote, a constitutional monarchy, and an end to corruption - many were shot dead in the street, and hundreds have now disappeared, after Saudi soldiers joined Bahraini police in a violent crack down that has been condemned by many human rights organisations. Bahraini students in Manchester and other UK cities who protested in support of the Bahraini democracy movement, have now had their sponsorship cancelled by the Bahraini government. We the undersigned call upon University chancellors to ensure these students can continue their studies, can remain in accommodation and do receive support. In addition we call upon the British Foreign Secretary to call in the Bahrain Ambassador and demand that the Bahraini crack down is ended.
