Kuwaiti protestors storm parliament

From the International Report delivered to the CPGB-ML’s central committee on 3 December

Thousands of protesters stormed parliament on 16 November as part of a long-running campaign to oust the prime minister, Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah, a nephew of the Emir.

In actual fact, the storming of parliament was a response to the heavy-handed police crackdown on a demonstration calling for the dismissal of the prime minister. The Emir is threatening to throw the book at those involved in the action and about 25 people are known to have been arrested so far.

News, however, is hard to come by, as the imperialist media seem unconcerned about the fate of protesters in Kuwait.
