The anticipation of tomorrow is frustrating. Not knowing what measures will be taken by Gov! #Iraq #Kurdistan #Reform

Only a couple of hours left before #Iraqis and #Kurds prepare for protests. #Kurdistan #Reform

Can't afford another #Iraq but we can't afford another _____ (country where we stood silent while thousands were slaughtered)
Shadi Hamid @shadihamid
Aren't there like 20 Arab countries holding protests today? Can't even keep track. Gonna be a busy day #Feb25
Shadi Hamid @shadihamid
With so many protests going on, maybe they should form region-wide Arab protest coordinating cmte #Feb25

#Iraq protester on Baghdad vehicle ban: 'Ok, it is good for my health.' #Feb25

Iraqi officials use media intimidation & threats of violence to defuse protests. Wait, isn't #Iraq a democracy?

Violence is an element in all protests. Frustration erupts, this doesn't diminish Gov responsibility/lack of response to demands. #Iraq
