Protests to hold those responsible for assassinations accountable, renewed demands
Iraq is facing its worst financial crisis in decades due to economic repercussions and the outbreak
of the Corona pandemic, which has negatively reflected the current reality of Iraqi society.
Meanwhile, the demonstrators appear determined to continue their movement and pressing their
demands of creating jobs, recruiting graduates and improving services. This group of society
confirms how many have waived their demands, even though many activists have been killed or prosecuted. They renewed their demands for reforms and hold those involved accountable for suppressing demonstrations. Protests have increased because of the build-up and life-threatening assassinations of protesters, through which hundreds of Iraqi protesters have demanded jobs, services and the departure of the ruling elite, which they described as corrupt.
