The pressure of financial depression and delay in employment salary payments (It is almost 3 years that local government reduced the salaries by 30%) and lack of distribution of oil in winter and electricity make some people to come out and demonstrate widely.
Yesterday, teachers in Sulaymaniyah governorate start demo in Sulaymaniyah, Kalar, Ranya Darbandikhan, Penjwin and other cities and other people join them.
After a few hours, people start to use violation, which result in forces to use tear gas.
In Penjwin, people attacked several Parties’ offices and set them on fire.
Although this is not the first time, people in Sulaymaniyah governorate protest current living situation but due to high security level in Erbil and Dohuk governorates and threats of Barzani party that they will react severely and fire employees who take place in demos, could not gather and start any demo.
Demonstrations are still going today and people were killed and injured by law enforcements.
