Starting on August 2, 1990, with the onset of Iraq’s
brutal occupation of Kuwait, a group of selfless Kuwaitis,
together with key British supporters, began organizing
and protesting the invasion of their nation. As the chilling
reality set in that the Iraqi regime intended to rule Kuwait
forever, their momentum grew into a movement centered
in London of more than 200 volunteers working mainly
within more than 2 dozen newly created committees.
This movement and its committees operated under the
all-encompassing title of the Free Kuwait Campaign.
After a 7-month struggle, their reward was a liberated
Kuwait and the knowledge of their role in achieving it.
This website aims to document some of their efforts for
posterity, and to thank these Kuwaitis and their British
supporters for their dedication to the urgent cause of
Kuwait’s liberation. We do regret in hindsight that our
coverage of the FKC was limited and contains too many
omissions. We hope over time that others may help to fill
these gaps by contributing to this Free Kuwait website.
