United Nations headquarters, Vienna
Iraqi Autumn collective stood to protest peacefully against the repression and killing of innocent people in Iraq, who were protesting for their rightful demands.
Since the 1st of October 2019, the Iraqi government killed more than 800 and injured more than 30,000 people after the start of peaceful demonstrations across many cities in Iraq.
A crime against humanity is being neglected by the absence of the international law.
Thousands of courageous young people have occupied Tahrir Square in Iraq since October 1st, 2019. After 17 years of misery, these younglings are demanding the prospect of a future. They protest peacefully for a home without war, hunger and death. But the government tried to stop the protests with all its might, many people died or were seriously injured.
But the revolution had just begun.
On the occasion of this revolution the artist and activist collective Iraqi Autumn came together. Since then, the collective has been intervening in public space and, with its art actions, has not only established an exchange with the protesters in Iraq, but has also sensitised the people here to the situation of the distant and foreign struggle for a just constitutional state.
