Riot policewomen use pepper spray as they arrest a Bahraini anti-government protester during a march to Al Farook Junction, formerly known as Pearl Square, in Budaiya, west of Manama February 17, 2012.
Riot police broke up the protest with teargas and stun grenades, after an announcement on a police loudspeaker that the demonstration was illegal.
The Information Ministry said authorities had, in the past 24 hours, deported four more foreign activists who had obtained tourist visas but participated in illegal demonstrations.

protests from a time not to long ago..


Wounded Knee incident
The Wounded Knee incident began February 27, 1973 when about 200 Oglala Lakota and followers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seized and occupied the town of Wounded Knee, South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
The grassroots protest followed the failure of their effort to impeach the elected tribal president Richard Wilson, whom they accused of corruption and abuse of opponents;
they also protested the United States government's failure to fulfill treaties with Indian peoples and demanded the reopening of treaty negotiations.
