Dozens of Iraqi protesters again clashed with security forces in Baghdad today, a day after a rally marked the first anniversary of the start of nationwide mass anti-government demonstrations. The AFP reports that thousands of Iraqis took to the streets nationwide yesterday to mark the first anniversary of the 2019 revolt dubbed the ‘October Revolution’, which demanded the ouster of the entire ruling class, accused of ineptitude and corruption. Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi, who has been in power for six months, has urged security forces to show restraint when confronting protesters.
