Zahra Al Shaikh : On the Ominous Day

8 Février 2013 , Rédigé par justicesocialeetdemocratiedirecte.over-blog.com

-“Why did they choose you in particular? Why didn’t they target anyone else in the march?”
-“There was no march. When I reached there, the riot police have dispersed a gathering called for by AlWefaq. The place was empty except for tens of police cars and a few of the rioting crowd. I was gonna go back but then decided to photograph the riot police while they perform their duty. Aren’t they proud of what they do? I managed to take a few shots and I thought that no one had noticed me until I glimpsed Captain Ghazi Al-Eesan approaching me. I came to know his name later of course. I ran to my car, but he stopped me near it and addressed me by my name. He asked me to give him my ID card, pushed me violently, and pulled away my university ID that was dangling from my car’s mirror.”
-“Why didn’t you give him your card?”
-“He scared me & didn’t give me a chance to think when he surrounded me. But I ran after him when he walked away with my university ID because I had an exam two days later and I would have not been able to sit for it without the ID. When he ignored me, I pulled the tip of his sleeve. He turned to me, and without thinking he called the police. They attacked me. One of them placed his hand on my breast so I bit him to remove it. Here the Captain ordered them to handcuff me.”
Her voice suddenly got louder as she evoked and then narrated her experiences in detention:

“They pulled me into the police car. I began to scream and cry out of pain. I begged them to open the handcuffs which were so tight that blood clotted in my veins. One of the police held a pepper spray next to my face. “Shut up or I’ll spray you” he said. His breath intoxicated my body.”
