Protests in Iraq

Wed Oct 30, 2019 8:25 pm

Over the past few weeks, protests have taken place in Iraq over unemployment and government corruption. Also, there have been calls for the removal of the Iraqi Prime Minister, including from a prominent Shia cleric. This could be signs of a second Arab Spring brewing and a movement toward government transparency.

An update on the situation in Iraq. The Prime Minister has announced that he will resign and a successor will take his place. This led to crowds cheering in Baghdad over the decision. It is history in the making for Iraq and what are your thoughts about this decision.

HK and now Iraq. Good to see that protesting is worth something and can still affect change in this tumultuous world.

Protests have also taken place in a number of countries like Chile, Spain, Ecuador, and Lebanon over the past couple months.

Yeah but those haven't been as successful as the ones in HK and Iraq.
