BAGHDAD — The Bethnahrin Patriotic Union (Huyodo Bethnahrin Athroyo, HBA) participated in the demonstrations organized by political parties and civil society organizations which believe in a modern and civil political system for running the Iraqi state.

On Saturday, a crowd of protestors gathered in Al-Firdos Square in Baghdad calling for the dissolution of the Iraqi Parliament and demanded an Iraqi homeland free of corruption and quotas. Ten civil parties participated in the demonstration and a joint statement was read.

The HBA also participated in the demonstration, represented by the HBA Vice President Joseph Sliwa.

Popular social media account “alwazeersaleh” which is close to Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, called for a vast demonstration in all governorates to head towards Baghdad.
