Bahrain activists release video: “No for the bloody Formula 1”

Bahraini activists opposed to the Formula 1 released a video, saying to the world: “Don’t race on our blood.” The video opens with a masked activist sat contemplating the race whilst holding a Bahrain flag. Shots from previous races are interspersed with footage of mass demonstrations and violence by security forces. He stands, points to the spectator and declares (in English): “You are racing over Bahraini’s blood!” He is followed by a series of activists who express a similar message, including human rights defender Jihan Kazerooni and Sayed Fadhel Shams, brother of Ahmad Shams, who was shot dead by police in 2011 aged just 15.
