Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Information Affairs Minister Isa Bin Abdulrahman Al-Hammadi, stressed that the country's authorities will confront calls for protests against the Formula 1 race, which is scheduled to take place between April 17 and 19.

In his response to a question asked during the weekly press conference held after the government meeting on Monday (April 13, 2015) about calls for staging protests posted on social media platforms that are aimed at harming the Formula 1 race, Al-Hammadi said that "the Ministry of Interior will confront any call or protest that aims at harming this international event and the Kingdom's interests, whether before, during, or after the Formula 1 race."

The opposition; however, believes that this event is just an opportunity to cover up human rights violations that the regime is committing against its opponents. A number of opposition groups have called for protests against this Formula 1 race.
