THE HUNGER STRIKE OF HASSAN MUSHAIMA’S SON

On August 1, 2018, Ali Mushaima launched a hunger strike outside Bahrain’s UK Embassy to protest the mistreatment of his father.

During his hunger strike, a sleeping Ali Mushaima was doused with an unknown foamy liquid thrown from the balcony of the Embassy, which also caused him to fear that he was assaulted with acid. When British law enforcement arrived and attempted to contact Embassy officials, no Bahraini representatives responded. The perpetrator and the liquid have not yet been identified, but Ali feared it was an attempt by Bahraini officials to end his hunger strike or silence him.

After Ali Mushaima’s hunger strike, his father was provided some care, but authorities continue to impose undue restrictions. However, even Ali’s demands have been met with harassment by the Bahraini government.

Ali continues to protest and to advocate on behalf of his father’s rights to healthcare, humane treatment, family visits and access to books and personal effects and above all for his immediate release.
