"My Citizenship Duty is My Right" campaign in Bahrain
In a big rally organized by the Bahrain-based Al-Tajdeed Cultural and Social Society (Al-Tajdeed), in cooperation with the Arab Democracy Foundation (ADF) and the Arab Civil Coalition for Citizenship, the campaign "My Citizenship Duty is My Right" was launched in Bahrain on Sunday 20 June 2010 in Manama.
ADF Secretary-General Mohsen Marzouk presented the campaign to a large and diverse audience that included all the political and religious components of the Bahraini society. He explained the preparatory process over two years of meetings and workshops, which culminated in the Doha Conference in April 2010 and the launch of the campaign at the regional level.
At the end of his presentation, Mr. Reda Rajab, president of Al-Tajdeed, granted Marzouk an honor award on behalf of the Bahraini Civil Coalition for Citizenship, in recognition of the role of ADF in developing and implementing the campaign, particularly at the regional level.
