It is a sad occasion that beckons me to write. It is in remembrance of Hussain Al-Fudhala one exact year of his last known whereabouts.
Hussain is Kuwaiti citizen gone fishing as many do here in Kuwait. He has gone to one of the Kuwaiti islands known for fishing as he and other members of his family have done regularly. He had two other individuals helping him. All have gone missing July 7 2008.
Searches have been conducted without result of any kind. Sad neither happy. Eyewitness reports have led the focus to Iran whom at first have shown some initial interest in locating him and therefore had a way out but later stated that he is not within Iran contradicting personal reports as well as official ones including ones by the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Iran himself that he had spoken to him (!) and was trying for his release.
We as the Kuwaiti blogosphere and individuals before anything else have taken this step to spread awareness as we have initially upon Hussain's abduction. We are now organizing a public rally. One organized by and for the people. We are doing so in light of a shameful complete lack of official interest. This rally is non-political but humanitarian. There will be speakers representing local chapters of Human Rights societies as well the society of Journalists as well as Members of the Kuwaiti Parliament. Local and international media have also been invited. Efforts are still ongoing. It will not be big production and it is not intended to be as it is a grassroots genuine effort aimed to keep Hussain Al-Fudhala's memory alive. May he be as well for the sake of his family and children. For the sake of right and wrong. For the sake of human decency, a term almost naive nowadays.
We want Hussain Al-Fudhala back!
