Throughout Iraq, anti-government protests have begun. These protests have left hundreds of protesters dead from the Iraqi Security Forces pushing back the protesters. Even high school students beginning to participate in the protests have been affected by the security forces use of tear gas and forceful pushing back. The Iraqi Prime Minister, Adil Abdul Mahdi, who agreed to resign due to these anti-government protests, said that the young generation is leading a movement that “shakes the entire country.” Officials have attempted to regain control of the people through the use of lethal force as well as using curfews and internet blackouts.
