Iraqi Railway workers demonstrate in Baghdad and Basra and block streets with railway wagons

Workers and employees of the Iraqi Railways Public Company demonstrated on Wednesday 29 July 2015 in Baghdad, in protest at halting the payment of their wages and transferring them to the “self-financing system”.

The protesters blocked several main streets in the north and west of Baghdad with railway wagons, in the areas of Aden Square, Shaljiyah and Yarmouk. 

In Basra, in southern Iraq, the employees of the Railways Public Company also organized a protest, warning that they will strike if their demands are not met.
