Hundreds Protests Corruption outside Kuwait’s Parliament

Thursday 7 November 2019

KUWAIT CITY (Ruptly) — Hundreds gathered outside the Kuwaiti parliament in Kuwait City on Wednesday to protest against corruption and poor public services.

Reports say the protest was called to by a former member of the Kuwaiti National assembly Saleh al-Moulla who used social media to mobilise protesters.

“We stand here in front of the National Assembly because we feel that this assembly did not serve the country in the past years. This assembly is the basis that hinders development”, one of the protesters said.

“Today we stand in silence. We don’t want to provoke anyone or harm anyone or destroy anything because we love our country and we want it but it’s a shame that some are accusing us of making a conspiracy”, a woman stated.

One of the protesters said addressing the crowd:

I have tried personally to obtain permission for this gathering despite my conviction that our gathering is constitutionally protected. So let’s sit together for the next hour in silence. Our message had been delivered.
