Demonstration and Sit in

  Demonstration and Sit-in – Saturday, December 15, 2012
According to media reports, there will be a demonstration and sit-in at Determination (Irada) Square in Kuwait City from the evening of Saturday, December 15 which may last until the following morning of Sunday, December 16.
An increased police and security presence is expected. 
Spontaneous and/or planned demonstrations take place in Kuwait from time to time in response to world events or local developments.  At times, even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence.  Avoid areas of demonstrations and exercise caution if within the vicinity of any demonstrations.  Please stay current with media coverage of local and regional events. U.S. Mission personnel have been advised to continue to practice personal security awareness and we advise the U.S. citizen community to do the same.
***My Kuwaiti family downstairs told me it is best to stay in as the Police have been given the authority to use FULL force***
Sounds like a stay in Friday Movie Night is planned for me and my bears!

  1. In my over three years in Kuwait this is the first time to receive so many demonstration emails. I still feel pretty safe her except for the driving. Have a great weekend! <3
