Bahrain Feature: Seeing the Crisis Through Children's Cartoons (Fisher)

Max Fisher of The Atlantic introduces a poignant and provocative way to view the ongoing crisis in Bahrain --- the cartoons of the country's children. Some of the examples featured on the site:

Maryam, age 7. She told activists that the drawing portrayed her and her sister running to help their uncle, shot in the head by security forces. The Pearl Monument, the icon of the protest movement, frowns in the background.

Zahra, age 8. She draws her two brothers in numbered football jerseys --- each has sentenced to 15 years in prison on political charges.

Ammar, age 12 --- his brother was killed by security forces. The text above the Bahraini flag reads, "Our martyrs are our pride."
