  • Our man in Bahrain: Photos from a revolution in progress

    An iTulip member stationed in Manama, Bahrain has been kind enough to share photos he's taken at the Pearl roundabout and other areas of the city over the past few days. Here are three of them.


    Young women in front of the security police

    Comment "The young women in front of the security police is holding a Bahrain national flag. Most or all of the security police here are not Bahraini.
    They are hired Pakistanis, Jordanians and some Lebanese. That is why they will shoot."


    Bahraini women demonstrating

    Comment: "Bahraini women are quite incredible. They have more influence within the family unit than almost anywhere else in the Arab world,
    although their role in society falls short of what most of us would find acceptable in our societies."


    Fish on the barbi in Pearl square

    Comment: "Despite the tensions and threat of violence, a party atmosphere pervades the area."

    To protect our member's identity, and reduce his exposure should the local authorities object to any of the photos he takes, additional photos are posted in the subscriber area here.

      what's to say, metalman? we sit here, hovering over our portfolios, while those people are risking their lives to change their governments. i've heard that al jazeera english has huge internet traffic from the u.s., and that they're using this data to try to get on the cable systems. i had the thought that perhaps they would cover the disaster in the u.s. economy, since our own media seem uninterested.

        Lots of videos on YouTube covering the protests in Bahrain. Two examples:





        Regarding the OP: iTulip is now copyrighting images submitted by members?
