Iraqis protest in Baghdad to mark 3rd anniversary of 2019 anti-government demonstrations

Marking the third anniversary since mass anti-government protests shook Iraq in 2019, demonstrators gathered in Baghdad's Tahrir Square on Saturday morning, waving Iraqi flags and chanting slogans. "We want security, we want work, we want our basic rights. We don't want to fight, or to shed blood," said Laith, a young anti-government demonstrator from the capital Baghdad.
