October Uprising

Montazar Al-Kharsan

The 2019 protests left some 25,000 people wounded, of whom some 5,000 live with permanent disabilities. They were not the first. According to the UN, due to war, conflict, accidents and birth defects, Iraq has the world’s highest number of disabled people.

Since the 2019 October protests, hundreds of activists and civilians have gone missing or disappeared, leaving friends and family in a state of despair.

Dozens of people fell. Friends were kidnapped and disappeared. And yet the chairs of power did not budge. This hurts me, makes me cry and hate myself and the day I was born here. To see such injustice and not being able to change it, even though we tried. I swear, we tried. We tried so much that we wasted the blood of 650 dreams, and thoughts, and laughs, and innocent faces. But our attempts were not enough. We lost and the government did not lose a thing. Its influence and tyranny only increased.
