And assembly and expression of opinion and the demand of their natural rights and the rights stipulated by the constitution and other laws, and Iraq like other countries should legislate a law on the right to peaceful protest was a draft law freedom of expression of opinion and meeting and peaceful demonstration, which has not been seen since 2014 and even Today, we have passed some of its texts with some analysis and discussion, publicly we are asking the legislator to draft this law and direct it the right face that I want him to approach, since we did not find among his texts effective protection for the demonstrators, but relied on the rest of the laws in providing them, but on the other hand he expanded on the side of imposing restrictions on To the citizens and to impose sanctions on them if they cause harm or commit an act is a crime.
