‘His mother wept for hours’: The stories behind Iraq’s deadly mass protests

Thousands of people have taken to the streets in Iraq throughout October, with hundreds losing their lives

What started as a relatively small gathering in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square on 1 October to protest unemployment, corruption and social injustice has morphed into some of the largest mass demonstrations that Iraq has seen in recent time, spawning a bloody crackdown by security forces.

At least 69 Iraqis were killed and hundreds wounded on Friday and Saturday as part of a second wave of protests. At least 225 people have been killed this month.
A government investigation, released last week to seemingly try and calm tensions, acknowledged the use of live ammunition by security forces and the deaths of 149 civilians and eight security personnel. The report said that 70 per cent of deaths were caused by shots to chest and head. Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mehdi ordered several officers and security officials to be relieved of their posts while announcing a number of others would face trial.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view

Teargas and hot water cannons have also been used, with a number of people dying after being hit by tear gas canisters fired by government forces. Thousands have continued to take to the streets into the weekend across the country from Baghdad to Nasiriya in the south, with government buildings being set on fire.
Some clerics have tried to denounce protesters as being links to the Baath Party, Isis or Israel, but in reality each of those protesting has their own reasons for taking to the streets. Here are the stories behind some of those who have lost their lives.

Their stories ...

Re: Iraq

In Iraq and Lebanon, Protesters Are Calling for an End to Iran’s Meddling

For a long time, endless and unconventional wars turned the Middle East into a battlefield between regional powers. It is unfortunate that instability and lack of peace and security have become routine for the people of this region.

Many innocent men, women, and even children wrestle with incredible threats and struggle to stay alive and save their families and relatives. However, it is significant that Tehran’s rulers have a main and fixed involvement in each conflict in this region.

Iranian officials, in fact, forcefully attempt to style the Islamic Republic and the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) as a savior for the people of neighboring countries. According to this policy, Iran’s Ayatollahs formed several paramilitary groups and funded them at the expense of the Iranian people. Ironically, the government is doling out this “generous” contribution while a huge part of the Iran population is suffering from poverty. Many people must sell their body organs to feed their families. Iranian rulers name this policy as “exporting the revolution” and claim they would like to donate to all the nations in the Middle East from the charities of the Islamic Republic, which bring out nothing for the people of Iran except terrible economic, social, and political conditions.

Iranian people reject “exporting the revolution”
In this regard, the Iranian society has been quick to reject the Ayatollahs’ policy to fund the fundamentalist entities in the Middle East and across the globe by squandering the national resources. During the nationwide protests in early 2018, we witnessed brave Iranian youth chanting the slogan: “Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I give my life for Iran,” and “Leave Syria and think about us.”

On the other hand, it is notable that these days, fed-up people whether in Iran or in other counties, which suffer from Iran’s meddling, target the bases of the IRGC or Iran-backed parties and militias. During recent unrest in Iraq, protesters set fire to the bases of renowned Iran proxies in Iraq such as the Islamic Dawa Party [Hezb Al-Dawa], Badr Corps, Asa'ib Ahl al‑Haq, etc. Remarkably, this happened frequently in Shiite-dominant provinces southern Iraq, where Iran supposedly has sizeable clout. Iraqi demonstrators even stepped further and set torched Iran’s consulate in Basra and chanted, “Iran leave, and Baghdad must be free.”

Re: Iraq

Many Iraqis must be regretting the passing of the Saddam Hussain regime. I know what his atrocities were, but at least people knew where they stood, and there was some stability in the region. Things have not gone well in any Arab country that experienced an 'Arab spring' We should be careful what we wish for here too.

Re: Iraq

If it were only just Iran meddling, add in the USA, Europe, Israel and Saudi, all after influencing what goes on, it goes back to the first Crusades, with no chance it seems for any respite as each meddler blames the other meddler.

God bless em, they even came from Australia to join in the Syria turkey shoot, hardly their back yard but there will no doubt a valid reason for some.

Re: Iraq

Looks like Iranian people have joined both the people of Iraqi and Lebanon to come out in protest of their leaders policies ...the thread between them, apart from failing economies , corruption, and with youths with nothing to due to unemployment is the mullah regime in Terhan and their influence and proxies in these countries.

Fourteen reported dead in just one day in fuel demo's in Iran 1 in Lebanon and 319 dead in Iraqi .

With Iran's supreme leader warnings what he calls 'thugs' of a more violent crackdown to come .

Re: Iraq

Although I have no doubts that the iranian people will finally overthorw thus backwards brutal corrupt regime but I have to say in iran the government has free hand in suppressing these movements unlike iraq where the government does not hold total grip of the power and specialty so when the grand ayatollah sistani supported the demonstrators

The face of the Middle East is changing and that’s not to liking of those who would have preferred to have kept status qua forever.
