Bahraini activist Esra'a argues why she chooses to stay home and work for her causes: “No government, no sole leader, no foreign interference will result in social change in any country of the Middle East – it comes from collective efforts. People like you. And if you’re living and working abroad simply for financial reasons and the opportunities it offers I suggest you come back to where you belong.”
