Iraqis in Hillah Continue Protests Against Corruption & Sectarianism Amid Government Crackdown

Dozens of protesters returned to the streets of Hillah in the Babylon governorate, in defiance of the recent crackdown on protesters by the Iraqi government during the anti-corruption protests that began in October 2019; security forces have killed over 600 people via sheer brutality and the indiscriminate use of live ammunition for over a year as a form of crowd control.

Organizers stated that the widespread campaign of arrests & repression on activists and protesters will not discourage Hillah, and anti-government actions will continue regardless of any government crackdown.
