No British base in Bahrain
We the undersigned oppose the plans by the British government to open a new military base in Bahrain, the first British base “east of Suez” since 1971. Rather than increasing military deployment in the Middle East we should be ending our disastrous interventions in the region.
Bahrain is a repressive, undemocratic regime that brutally crushed the movement for democracy in 2011. Britain should not be showing complicity with the actions of the Bahraini monarchy.
