(5 Nov 2019) Some Iraqi protesters are expressing their hopes for revolutionary change through art.
Demonstrators painted on the walls of a tunnel leading to Baghdad’s iconic Tahrir Square, which has been wracked by weeks of violent protests.
Others set up what looked like a courtroom and acted like judges to hold to account corrupt politicians, calling for the overthrow of the government and sweeping political change.
Iraqis have taken to the streets to protest against government corruption, a lack of jobs and municipal services, and other grievances.
The leaderless and largely spontaneous protests across Iraq have been met with bullets and tear gas by security forces from the start.
