Police using live bullets and handguns to shoot protesters. The protesters sometimes defend themselves against the aggression using molotov cocktails, but such a tactic is of little use against massive overuse of teargas and live bullets. The clip was filmed in Al-Maamir, in the Gulf kingdom of Bahrain.
The protesters demand reform of the monarchy, asking for a constitutional monarchy to replace the current absolute monarchy. The king's brothers, sons, uncles, son's in law, cousins, nephews,etc currently hold every single position of note in the government and security. The protesters rightly believe that such extreme nepotism does not promote the country and causes backwardness, including corruption, unemployment and oppression. However, the US Fifth Fleet is stationed in Bahrain, and the US (and allies) supply tear gas, bullets, weapons, intelligence and personnel in order to artificially prop up the failing regime in the face of a popular uprising.
It is hard to miss that the US administration is promoting self interest in the Middle East, not human rights, and calling for the overthrow of certain regimes like Syria, while supporting Middle East outrageous dictatorships like Bahrain and Saudi Arabia which make Syria look like a full democracy!
