There has been a protest for secularism –with thousands of youthful, secular Iraqis– rising in Iraq. It desperately needs our attention and support; and if you identify yourself as an advocate for secularism, please read this excerpt below:
If you are a media company, journalist, spread the word about the protests! Coverage of protests: “For five Fridays now, thousands of mostly, but not entirely, youthful and secular Iraqis have gathered in central Baghdad’s Tahrir Square to demand change. At first, the demands were small, like improving electricity amid a summer heat wave. But the list has grown longer and more complex: Fix the judiciary, hold corrupt officials accountable, get religion out of politics.” http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/01/world/middleea..
