Hundreds of Saudi anti-government protesters have taken to the streets in the country’s Eastern Province, condemning the kingdom’s military intervention in Bahrain.

The protesters, mainly Shias, also called for the immediate release of what they called forgotten political prisoners. Protesters say the prisoners are being held unjustly and without trial, some as long as 16 years.

There protest rallies were held in two villages close to the main Shia city of Qatif shortly after the Friday Prayers.

“There are around 400 protesters here at the moment and some are waving Bahraini flags. The protests are peaceful and the riot police are well away from the demonstrators,” an activist said.

Demonstrators also called for political freedoms and an end to sectarian discrimination against the Shia community by the Sunni monarchy.

Saudi Arabia’s Shia Muslims, who are considered a minority, complain about government discrimination, saying they are treated as second class citizens and that they often struggle to get the government jobs and benefits available to other citizens.
