Anti-Corruption Protests Against U.S.-Backed Iraq Government


Baghdad, September 1 (RHC)-- In Iraq, nonviolent civil resistance is growing as a campaign of weekly protests enters its second month.  Tens of thousands of protesters in Baghdad have called for improvements to the country’s electrical system amid a sweltering heat wave, trials for corrupt officials and the enactment of anti-corruption reforms. 

The demonstrations are largely led by young people, many of whom see the movement as a rebuke of the government created by the United States following the 2003 invasion. 

One of demonstrators, 22-year-old Hussein Ali, told The New York Times: "This protest was established to demolish what the Americans set up."
