A group of Bedoons have just been released from prison in Kuwait city. They were arrested during the demonstration of May 1st 2012, when about 300 Bedoons gathered near al-Sha'bi mosque in Taima to demand government action on their citizenship claims and resolution of their stateless status. Abdul Hakeem al-Fadhli, a prominent Bedoon activist, was among those arrested. The ministry alleged that demonstrators ignored its repeated warning that illegal residents are not allowed to demonstrate. Kuwaiti authorities do not respect the rights of Bedoons to peaceful assembly. Masked officers normally use batons and armored vehicles to disperse and arrest the protesters, participants and Kuwaiti activists. Riot police use smoke bombs and hot water.
