‘Boycott to protest rise in fish prices’ Public bemoans high rents

KUWAIT CITY, July 4: A number of activists launched a campaign on the social networking sites Thursday to boycott fish until Sunday to protest against the recent hike in fish prices and the activities of greedy traders, reports Al-Seyassah daily. The activists via SMS and social communication pressed for fish prices to return to normal, besides confronting the greedy traders who exploit the needs of citizens.

They indicated the price of local fish such as ‘Zubaidi’ which was sold for KD 14 per kilo before the holy month of Ramadan is currently sold for KD 20.

Also, the price of Hamour was increased in some markets from KD 6.5 per kilo to KD 12. They urged the general public to interact positively with the demands of the campaign and boycott the traders to force them to reduce the prices to normal.

In an unrelated development, another group of activists launched online campaign and requested the officials of real estate and investments nationwide to review the high cost of private accommodation, given that rental fee is not paid to real estate owners in full.

Recent studies pointed to rental fee hitting the highest point in five years with specific real estate sectors recording 100 percent increase compared to previous years, indicating “Kuwait with all its laws is unable to deal with greedy traders and the owners of real estates”.
