by Eman A. Khamas and BRussells Tribunal on 18-01-2013

Millions of Iraqis in different parts of the country have taken part in the continuing protest for the 27th day today within the framework of the Iraqi revolution, insisting that the government responds to their demands positively and without any deception or delay (hence the slogan �No Deception�).

This photo article is based on a report issued 8th January 2013 by the Adminstrative Committee of the Ramadi city vigil, in the western Iraqi province of Anbar. It describes the demonstrations that started 26 December 2012, and turned in the following week into a permanent encampment of protest. The Organising Committee report in Arabic is entitled: �Is this demonstration really a �bubble� like Al- Maliki described it? Does it include �stinking� slogans as he said? Let the whole world know our case!�. That is in response to the immediate public claims by the sitting Prime Minster Nuri Maliki that the demonstration is just a passing� bubble�, with �stinking� slogans.

The hunger strike by 2000 among 6480 detainees in Al-Taji prison - known as The Whale - that started on Dec 18th 2012, is still going on after the death of at least 2 of the detainees on strike, and the unconsciousness of many others.
