Bahrain #StopTheShipment tear gas effort scores victory
South Korea suspends planned exports in wake of global campaign.
South Korea has suspended tear gas exports to Bahrain, citing political instability in the country. The decision scores a victory for advocacy group Bahrain Watch, which launched its #StopTheShipment campaign in October as an attempt to pressure Korean and South African suppliers to halt tear gas shipments to the Gulf kingdom.
According to Bahrain Watch, South Korean companies DaeKwang Chemical and CNO Tech together shipped more than 1 million tear gas canisters to Bahrain in 2011 and 2012. In October, the group leaked a document appearing to show an order of 1.6 million tear gas canisters from the Bahraini Ministry of the Interior.
South Korea today announced a halt to shipments of tear gas to Bahrain, following pressure from Amnesty International and other human rights groups which worked alongside Bahrain Watch’s ‘Stop the Shipment’ campaign: here.
