Information on blocked users in Bahrain
We have been informed that some Bambuser accounts are being censored within Bahrain, as the local government seeks to control the news in the face of demonstrations by protestors in the country. This attempt to disrupt internet communications seems to mirror what we witnessed in Egypt a few weeks back.
One particular user that has been censored is Alaali. You can watch Alaali's Bambuser channel and follow Alaali's latest twitter updates. Here's what's meeting him when trying to view the channel in Bahrain: http://twitpic.com/405osn.
People are still able to broadcast to Bambuser.
We are following the situation in Bahrain closely, and will update this blog post as soon as we see any changes in the blocking of Bambuser in Bahrain. We strongly condemn any government attempts to silence democratic movements.

Also for people within Bahrain we recommend you trying out the Tor Project which protects your privacy and which we hope give you full access to all content on Bambuser. Please let us know if it works.
Here is a broadcast on the situation just a while ago
