Hundreds of young people went out on Tuesday 25/10/2022 in Baghdad / Tahrir Square to commemorate the third anniversary of the Tishreen uprising that began in 2019 in protest against the rampant political, administrative and financial corruption of the party elites that control the state’s resources, as well as the lack and poor quality of public services. In addition to the lack of employments and job opportunities for young people, especially graduates.
Clashes took place between the young demonstrators, most of whom were carrying pictures of the martyrs of the uprising, and the security forces, during which stones and empty bottles were used, and the security forces fired tear gas canisters, injuring dozens on both sides.
We at NIHR, as a human rights defender organization, demand the new government to meet the legitimate demands of the demonstrators, and to establish a government program that includes well-studied strategic plans that carry effective solutions to the problems and accumulated needs of young people and other members of society to eliminate corruption, reveal the theft of public money and bring them to justice, to obtain all members of society, especially the youth their civil rights stipulated in the Iraqi constitution.
