Bahrain's general labour union on Saturday called an indefinite strike to demand the right to hold peaceful protests without the security forces resorting to force.
"The general union calls upon the workers of Bahrain to stage a general strike starting Sunday unless the army is pulled out from the streets and peaceful demonstrations are permitted" it said.
The army was ordered to return to their bases on Saturday afternoon, on the third day of its deployment following a deadly raid by police on an anti-regime protest in central Manama.
