Bahrain's National Day

From Bahrain correspondent:  "Yesterday the Bahraini monarchy celebrated Bahrain's "National Day." After a two decade long national struggle against the British, we finally gained our independence on August 15, 1971. The royal family do not want us to remember this day since they were propped up by the British colonialists. So instead, we celebrate our national day on December 16, the day of the coronation of the Kings father."
