Why street protests continue in Iraq

According to World Bank figures. nearly 60 percent of Iraq’s 40 million people live on less than $6 a day. large crowds of mostly young Iraqis have poured onto the streets of Baghdad and other cities in an outburst of anger over chronic unemployment, corruption and poor public services.

The protests have been going on for days now. They also complained about the lack of access to water and electricity. Just like Nigerians, some of the demonstrators in Iraq say they have a lot of oil reserves in Iraq but they don’t see any of the country’s wealth.

Police try to disperse the demonstrators by using tear gas, water cannon, live rounds as well as rubber bullets. The semi-official Iraqi High Commission of Human Rights reported that nearly 100 people have been killed and an estimated number of 4,000 people have also been wounded in the clashes.
