Teachers in Bahrain being Abused

In Bahrain, teachers are being subject to abuse and injustice. The teachers are not only being arrested but they are also being tried by a military court. It is not right for civilians to ever be tried in a Military Court. One instance which Amnesty International cites in an urgent action
report is on the former vice president of the BTA (Bahrain’s Teachers Association). She was arrested, in custody for over 5 months and mistreated during her imprisonment. She was also then tried in a Military Court and unjustly sentenced to 3 years in prison. Now teachers all over Bahrain are on strike and the kids are without teachers. How can students be helped in this ordeal? They have a right to an education. What would you do if they were your teachers?
