Iraq: Thousands Rally Against Government Crackdowns on Demonstrations

Thousands of protesters marched through central Baghdad on Sunday to protest against the government following Saturday’s violent crackdown on demonstrations.

Footage shows protesters marching while holding a large Iraqi flag and empty coffins to commemorate the victims of the recent government raids.

On Saturday, Iraqi authorities raided key protest sites in several Iraqi cities including Baghdad and Basra, deploying live ammunition and tear gas and setting fire to protesters’ tents.

The unrest began in Iraq in October, amid anger over corruption and economic inequality. Over 400 protesters have been killed and thousands more injured forcing Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to resign from the post on December 1.
