Protesters demand better living standards

RAMADI: Hundreds of Iraqis took to the streets of the western city of Ramadi on Sunday, demonstrating against the Anbar provincial governor and the head of the local city council over their failure to provide the people of the city with basic services.”We want an honest governor, we want a governor who serves the province. We have received nothing but promises,” said Majid Hameed, a pharmacist from Anbar province.”They promised us electricity in September and they promised to make it (Anbar) another Dubai. What Dubai are they are talking about? We want to eat and drink. We do not have food and drink,” he added.The protesters were watched by members of the Iraqi army as they carried banners and shouted slogans calling for the resignation of Governor Qassim Mohammed and head of the local city council Jassim al-Halboussi.Sheikh Ali Hatim Al-Salman, who is head of the Dulaim tribe in the province, said that the Prime Minister had three days to come and see conditions for himself.”If he does not do anything, we will hold massive protests and we will unseat them by force,” said Al-Salman.
