Iraq, thousands in anti-government rally in Baghdad


In the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, thousands gathered in Tahrir Square to protest the government.

Protesters called for the creation of an independent government and said they did not want corrupt political parties.

During the protest it was noted that one group chanted slogans against Iran and another group chanted “Neither America nor Iran”.

Iraqi protesters held up placards with the inscription “We do not want war, we want homeland” and called for their country not to become a territory of conflict due to tensions between Iran and the United States.

Meanwhile today in campaigns carried out via social media in Iraq, a “widespread protest” was called.

Protests in the country erupted on October 1, 2019 due to unemployment, corruption and a lack of public service, which still continue on the 100th day.
