The opposition movement demanded the action to start on the evening of Feb. 12, until the evening of Feb. 14.
The February 14 Youth Coalition, named after the date of the beginning of the popular revolt against the political system in Manama, urged Bahrainis to participate in the various activities as well as the peaceful demonstrations.
The group outlined and planned some acts of civil disobedience as school strikes, and for residents to turn off the lights of their houses at eight o’clock in the evening for two consecutive nights.
They also urged Bahraini shop owners to shut down their stores at eight o'clock in the evening on Feb. 12 and re-open them on Feb. 14; not to travel along King Fahd Causeway, which connects Bahrain to Saudi Arabia, and to boycott shopping malls on these same days.
Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis since a popular uprising began nine years ago.
Among other things, protesters have been denouncing widespread discrimination against the Shia majority in the kingdom. They are demanding that the regime of King Hamad Al-Khalifa, a close ally of the United States in the region, hand over power and allow a fair system representing all Bahrainis to be established.
Manama has responded to the protests with lethal force, and troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) were also deployed to assist the regime in its crackdown in 2011.
Scores of dissidents were killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations.
Many international rights organizations have condemned the Bahraini regime for its rampant human rights abuses against opposition groups and anti-regime protesters.
