Bahrain GP Sparks Violent Protests

Formula 1

Footage shows anti-establishment protestors setting up roadblocks with burning tires.

Pro-democracy protests are currently in full swing in Bahrain, led bythe February 14 Youth Coalition. The underground movement is in the midstof a week-long campaign dubbed "volcanic flames", aimed against this weekend’s Formula One race. Anti-government activists are demanding the race be cancelled, and as partof their protests have taken to the streets armed with tires and Molotovcocktails, bringing traffic to a standstill with flaming barricades.

In 2011, the race was postponed because of similar human rights protests but the chairman of the Bahrain International Circuit insists Sunday’s grand prix will go ahead as planned despite these shocking scenes in the island kingdom.
