UPDATES: Iraq police fire live rounds, tear gas to disperse Baghdad protesters

2 hours ago | 12.17 p.m. 

‘We want to topple the state’

Protesters gathered near Baghdad’s Tahrir Square say they are no longer interested in their original demands of tackling unemployment, corruption, and the lack of public services. They are now calling for the overthrow of the government. 

In footage of Friday’s unrest, protesters can be heard chanting: “Parties out, out! Baghdad will remain free!” 

“We, alongside the youth, are out not for jobs or anything. We want to topple the state. We want a homeland because these [in power] are useless,” one protester told Rudaw.

“We want a homeland. We want to live like other Arab states,” he added. “Today, God willing, it is either us, or them.” 

Ambulances have been seen racing through Baghdad transporting the wounded to local hospitals. 

“The demands of the people are clear. They want to change the corrupt political system of the past 16 years, and of before that as well,” said another protester. 

The ruling parties have caused the spread of illiteracy and poverty and have divided Iraq's resources among themselves, the protester added. “We want a new Iraq, a country we believe in, we want reassurance, democracy, and freedom.” 

In the run up to the resumption of protests on Friday morning, the Iraqi interior ministry and the prime minister said measures were being taken to protect the safety of protesters. 

“The government continues its lies, promising to protect peaceful protesters, but there is repression,” the protester said.

A member of the security forces in Tahrir Square told Rudaw they are not against the protesters, blaming the fatal shootings on the armed militias of Iraq’s political parties. 

“We are with them, not against them. It is the parties that are shooting them. It is impossible that security forces hurt the protesters,” the riot policeman said.

Tear gas, live ammunition 

Iraqi police have used tear gas and fired live rounds into the air to disperse protesters gathering near the Green Zone in the capital Baghdad, where anti-government demonstrations resumed on Friday, according to Rudaw’s reporter at the scene.

Images are already emerging of wounded protesters being carried away and others being detained by security forces. There are also images of protesters pulling down concrete barriers and barbed wire fences protecting government buildings in the fortified Green Zone. 

Protesters say at least one person has been killed. Rudaw has not be able to independently verify the claim. .......
