Leading opposition figures to speak in London tonight

Two leading members of Al Wefaq, Bahrain’s largest opposition party, will speak tonight at SOAS University.

Jawad Fairouz, resigned MP and one of 31 to have their citizenships revoked, will speak alongside Bushra Alhendi, a youth and women’s leader in Al Wefaq. The event, hosted by the SOAS Ahlul-bayt society, will be chaired by Dr. Kristian Coates-Ulrichsen from LSE’s Kuwait Programme.

The guests will discuss the latest situation in Bahrain and give thoughts on a potential way forward for the country towards democracy and away from the repressive policies that have characterised the crackdown over the past 20 months.
