ICSSI – Baghdad, August 14, 2015
Iraqi people are demonstrating this evening against corruption in Baghdad, even if a truck bomb exploded yesterday in a busy marker killing at least 67 people and wounding 200. Many other Iraqis are taking the streets in several Iraqi cities, in spite of the reforms already approved by the Parliament, and activists announced that demonstrations will continue every Friday until reforms are implemented.
Watch these exceptional videos on the demonstrations in Tahrir Sqare, Baghdad. People are singing, police smile at activists and distribute water to them, women feel confident enough to be in the crowd. Another Iraqi is possible, indeed!
