We cannot do much to end the nightly violence in Bahrain; but what little we can do, we ought to do:
At last, with this BBC article, the #Bahrain scandal has hit the mainstream - and about time too.
There has been ongoing government oppression there for more than a year, but the West has been desperately slow to act/react. Now, #F1 have forced through the Grand Prix on Sunday, which will merely give validation to a dreadful regime.
The #F1 may go still be going ahead but we can still #boycottBahrain.
What Can I Do?
The best thing to do would be to refuse to watch the Grand Prix as a gesture of solidarity.
However, if you cannot make yourself do that, take a note of the companies which are advertising on the track and on the TV as you are watching, and contact them to tell them that you are going to boycott their product because they supported the Bahrain Grand Prix. At least that will make them aware next time that they must take human rights issues into account - Grand Prix races should not merely be about hedonistic indulgence.
