Iraqi protesters in Hilla put conditions to suspend demonstrations

 

Iraqi demonstrators in Alexandria, Hilla city said they reiterated calls for the local  government to implement their demands to suspend their protests.

 

The demands included the rule of law in the region; banning individuals from possessing arms; providing more job opportunities and improving basic services and infrastructure.

The Baghdad Post received a document showing the demonstrators' demands.



This comes as the Iraqi provinces, especially the southern ones, have been witnessing mass protests demanding better living conditions. Protesters there took to the streets over power outages, corruption, water shortages and other social and economic disturbances. 

 

Media figures and academics said Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was dealing with the anti-government protests by making false promises that cannot be realized in the short term.

 

Sources confirmed the situation in southern Iraq was getting out of control as angry protests are taking control of the provinces. Activists expressed concern the IRGC militia exploits the ongoing turmoil to spread terror and hamper oil transfers.
