    Dear friends,
    ‏I am writing to you from Iraq, which has been living for decades in a 
    state of instability, wars, dictatorship and occupation. Iraqis have 
    been protesting for two weeks.
    Tomorrow will be the largest in the capital Baghdad and other cities to 
    demand their looted rights to improve the living situation and provide 
    jobs and restore dignity to Iraqis.
    Dears,during the past demonstrations, the government suppressed the 
    demonstrators in brutal ways using live bullets and armed militias to 
    intimidate them and stop the demonstrations.
    Tomorrow (friday25)  the demonstration will come again demonstrations 
    and I think that the government will not just watch the demonstrators as 
    possible to assault them in different ways as happened previously.
    The Iraqi Social Forum invites you to show solidarity with the Iraqis in 
    their peaceful uprising for dignity and social justice.
    To find out more about the protests, you can join the Telegram channel :

    possible they will cut it again in the coming hours .
