Repression is only getting worse in Bahrain: execution, torture, incarceration, repression, silencing voices, and now life sentences.

"Bahrain has sentenced eight Shia activists to life in jail for plotting to overthrow the government, the state news agency BNA reports.
They were among 21 opposition figures tried by a special security court. Others got sentences of up to 15 years.
Ahead of the verdict, Shia protesters blocked roads and staged rallies".
