Kuwait: Stateless Community Continues Protesting | Global Voices

The stateless community in Kuwait (Bedoon) has been protesting for their rights to documents and citizenship since February 2011. The community has been denied, for more than two decades, their rights to health care, education, employment, and all legal documents.

Regularly, the community protests in their isolated areas in Taimaa and Sulaibiya, resulting in countless arrests despite the fact that Kuwait’s courts have been acquitting protesters constantly. This Friday, the Bedoon protested again as riot police arrested 12 of them; an action that made the community to continue to protest on Saturday and Sunday too.
