Jen Marlowe, author of The Hour of Sunlight: One Palestinian’s Journey from Prisoner to Peacemaker, discusses the mainstream media’s blackout of the “secret” revolution in Bahrain; the international human rights activists participating in the Witness Bahrain initiative; how Bahrain’s majority Shia population is battling for equal rights against a despotic monarchy – not engaging in sectarian warfare against the Sunni minority; why Jihan Kazerooni gave up her investment banking career for political activism; and why the Obama administration – though it has considerable leverage – refuses to advocate for democratic reform in Bahrain.
