Pearl "Lulu" Roundabout now : serving free tea and ... on Twitpic

Word on the web and just confirmed by Al Jazeera English TV is that a Tahrir Square like tent city is forming in Pearl Roundabout in Bahrain.


Since the afternoon this normally empty square is alive with tweets, indicating a large protest. The photo above confirms that people are collecting in to the night at Pearl Roundabout since the local time 3 PM protest rally was called.

We noticed the rally was called on Twitter and shortly there after we saw a movement of tweets from near the main hospital where a protester had been taken after being killed north to Pearl Roundabout. The indications are that the hundreds if not thousands of twitter accounts are engaged in the protest along with the people, and that information posted in twitter is not just rumor but is being acted upon.

Looks like another potential Tahrir Square.
