Al Jazeera English: Chilean Miners, Bahrain the Revolution is not dead, and Vitorrio Arigoni

Al Jazeera English has three good reports / documentaries.

The first is on the lives of the Chilean Miners post-rescue. Their lives are just as bad as before. I've always said people that work a job should have a dignified livelihood. There's one scene where a billionare who made money off the copper mines flies in to give $10,000 to each of the miners' families. So that's where all the money went. And I bet he worked so hard it was worth a billion! And so were the other investors!

The second is on Bahrain where the people demanded change only to get crushed by the Saudi Arabian military. nevertheless, the flame is not extinguished as every night there's a shout on top of roofs at night for the longing of freedom. The US military stands idly by lending its support to the Bahraini King. If only the Bahraini King defied the US would there be rebels with guns as in Libya (sarcasm)...

And thirdly, a look at Vittorio Arrigoni's life. He was shot dead in April 2011 by the Israel / a Salafi group for trying to bring peace to the region. What a world!
