Alfadli Alfadli started this petition to Human Rights Campaign and

Bidoon (short for bidoon jinsiya, meaning ‘without nationality’ in Arabic, and alternately spelt as Bedoon, Bidun and Bedun) are a stateless Arab minority in Kuwait who were not included as citizens at the time of the country’s independence or shortly thereafter. The term Bidoon should not be conflated with Bedouin: the latter refers to a much larger social-cultural category of desert-dwelling, nomadic pastoralists in the region, although there is some overlap between the two categories.

The government currently categorizes Bidoon as ‘illegal residents,’ despite the fact that many have no real connections to any country other than Kuwait, and in the face of decades of social discourse depicting Bidoon as connected to Kuwaiti territory.  Due to their stateless status, Bidoon face difficulties in obtaining civil documents, finding employment, and accessing healthcare, education, and other social services provided to Kuwaiti citizens.  As a result, many live in relative poverty and are relegated to working in the informal sector. No rights at all.

We want to put some political and social pressure on Kuwait and Kuwaiti decision maker to solve this humanitarian case.
