  • In Kuwait, amid heavy security presence and in defiance of the warning issued by the Interior Ministry, the stateless residents (Bedouns) staged demonstrations after Friday prayers in Sulaibiya, Taima and Ahmadi areas demanding their civil rights.
  • On Friday in Russia, 150 hunger strikers protested what they say is police pressure on Bashkir nationalists in the Russian republic of Bashkortostan.
  • In Germany, tens of thousands formed a human chain on Saturday between the Neckarwestheim nuclear plant and the southwestern city of Stuttgart, which are 28 miles (45 kilometers) apart- some waving yellow flags with the slogan “Nuclear power – no thanks.”
