Protests against lack of security in Kirkuk

15 TEMMUZ 2013

The protesters marched today at 9:30 am today, July 14, in front of the governor’s office and are to hand officials a memorandum comprised of six points regarding the security breaches.

Hunar Ahmad, one of the protesters told Kirkuk Now “The security issues in Kirkuk worsen day by day, and the security plans are futile. We have written down a memo for the officials regarding the security issues in the city.”

The arrest of the perpetrators, changing the security officials of the city as well as relocating the political parties headquarters out of the city are among the demands of the protesters.

They have also demanded that the security officials of Kirkuk who are living outside of the city should be sacked and that the security trench around the city be finished as soon as possible alomg with demands for uniting the two distinct security forces that each are differently affiliated with Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and Kurdistan Democratic Party.

The protests were held following Friday’s deadly blasts in one of the popular cafes of Kirkuk which has killed at least 41 persons and left another 31 injured.
