Demonstrations denouncing the investigation and accountability
for the violations and assassinations committed against activists
The Iraqis, especially the youth and universities and institutes graduates, were looking forward to making progress in efforts towards addressing major challenges, the most important of which are the deteriorating economic conditions, decline in the level of services, demand for monthly student financial grants and because of the corruption in the university administration, the poor basic services in the student accommodations and the exacerbation of unemployment in addition to the hesitant reconstruction efforts.
The country is witnessing a decline in living standard due to the high unemployment, the absence of services and deterioration of infrastructure. On the other hand, there is no actual political participation, as there are no new personalities in the political process. What the youth receives of repression is political ignorance and mistrust on the part of some political parties through being enemies to them. Therefore, it seems that the Iraqi street is not free of manifestations of peaceful assemblies, which is a right guaranteed by the Iraqi constitution, including freedom of expression and peaceful demonstration, in a manner that does not affect the country's higher interests such as security and stability.
