Send flowers to the people of Bahrain - An IFEX initiative

An IFEX initiative for the 1st anniversary of the Bahraini Spring

Take action!
Send flowers to the people of Bahrain
Tuesday, 14 February marks the one-year anniversary of Bahrain's uprising. But as IFEX has recently reported, human rights violations continue daily: peaceful protests are met with bullets, tanks and teargas while human rights defenders remain unjustly jailed - some of them sentenced to life in prison merely for calling for peaceful reform.

While weapons are being sent to Manama we choose to honour the people of Bahrain by sending flowers in recognition of their continued struggle for human rights. Let them know that you support their quest to peacefully exercise their right to freedom of expression - whether in the streets, online, through music, writing or poetry - without fear of harm.

Post the virtual flower for peace below (click to download the full-size image) on your website, Facebook and Twitter - ask your friends to do the same.

  2. Hi,

    I apologize for informing you after i've done this, but i liked this picture so much that i used it for a event flyer for a Bahrain event of our own. We've removed the text and replaced with one relevant to our event.

    I hope that's okay with you.


    I've taken the liberty of linking the flyer back to this blog, so there's no confusion as to who created it.

  3. Hi, thank you for your comment, however the illustration is not mine, as stated in this post is an IFEX initiative to mark one-year of Bahraini-Spring (we're nearly at the second year). Please take the time to follow this IFEX initiative to its original creators, links are provided in both my post, as well as initiative bars in the left of my blog.

    To Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood...
