Leaked Document Shows Massive New Tear Gas Shipment Planned for Bahrain "the Saudi proxy in the arab spring Obama wont talk about
[link to bahrainwatch.org (secure)] LEAKED DOCUMENT SHOWS MASSIVE NEW TEAR GAS SHIPMENT PLANNED FOR BAHRAIN
Bahrain Government Apparently Intends to Stockpile More Tear Gas Canisters than People in Country

[Manama] Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior is planning to import 1.6 million tear gas canisters and 90,000 tear gas grenades, according to a leaked document, published today by research and advocacy group Bahrain Watch.  The document — apparently a tender issued by the Ministry of Interior’s Purchasing Directorate — shows that Bahrain’s security forces are stockpiling massive amounts of tear gas, despite serious concerns of international NGOs and the United Nations Human Rights Council.  These groups have called Bahrain’s use of tear gas “unnecessary and indiscriminate”, and “lethal”.  This planned new shipment will supply Bahrain with more tear gas canisters than the entire population of the country.
The document, signed by “Assistant Undersecretary Abdulla Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa”, calls for all proposals to be submitted “not later than 16th July 2013”. Ministry of Interior tenders are typically not available on the Government’s Tender Board website.  This is the first time that an apparent tender for tear gas has been made public.  The tender calls for arms companies to supply Bahrain with the following items:
800,000 CS Tear Gas Long Range Shells 37/40mm
400,000 CS Tear Gas Short Range Shells 37/40mm
400,000 CS Tear Gas Shell, Multiple Submunition (Five Way) 37/40mm
45,000 CS Hand Grenades (One way)
45,000 Tear Gas Hand Grenades (Five way)
145,000 Sound & Flash Grenades
The tender also requires the bids commit to both “carrying out the necessary training of Ministry of Interior personnel at your factory upon request” and inviting “a delegation of Ministry of Interior to demonstrate production and testing process upon request” if deemed necessary.
Bahrain Watch understands that no shipment related to this tender has yet been made, however, such a shipment could begin at any time, given the date of the tender.
Bahrain has historically used US-origin tear gas, but the State Department apparently blocked further US exports

Bahrain’s enormous tear gas tender exposed amid ongoing unrest

[link to rt.com] Demonstrators protesting the death of an activist were teargassed near Bahrain’s capital on Wednesday, as human rights groups slam the country’s crowd-dispersal policies following release of a leaked government tender for riot control weaponry supplies.

Bahrain’s Ministry of the Interior issued a tender in June, seeking supplies of 1.6 million tear gas canisters and 145,000 stun grenades, according to a document obtained by UK based rights group Bahrain Watch. The number of tear gas shells appears to be greater than the country’s population of 1.2 million.

The watchdog has alleged South Korean companies could be most likely bidders, taking into account they have a record of supplying tear gas to Bahrain.

South Korea’s DaeKwang Chemical acknowledged it exported around 1 million units of tear gas to Bahrain between 2011 and 2012 according to Kim Jong-bae, a senior executive at the group, cited by the Financial Times.

Bahrain Watch has launched an online campaign, calling on internet users to bombard the companies exporting tear gas to Bahrain and the authorities approving such sales with condemnatory emails.

“Tear gas is supposed to be 'non-lethal', but Bahrain's police use large amounts of tear gas in residential areas, even when there are no protests, and sometimes shoot tear gas directly into houses. The police also fire the canisters directly at people's heads, which has caused serious injuries and deaths,” the text of the message reads. It had already been sent about 30,000 times by the time this article was published. 

Signatories to the message have been welcome to share their own stories of tear gas exposure.

“I live in Sehla – Bahrain. Tear gas became a daily routine that we got used to, I would never dare open the window driving into town, knowing that I could suffocate and drive into a lamp post on the way. My wife is pregnant and we bought gas masks and put them in our cars,” one of such stories by a user named Anon reads at the campaign’s web-page.  

Other rights groups joined the campaign. Hum
