Iraq’s Revolutionary Inflection Point

Iraq’s Revolutionary Inflection Point

Newlines Institute’s Rasha Al Aqeedi and The New York Times’ Baghdad bureau chief Jane Arraf discuss the current state of Iraq’s October Revolution movement that began nearly two years ago. They are joined by a prominent figure in Iraq’s political activism scene. Newlines Institute has decided to keep the activist anonymous for security reasons, as threats and assassinations continue targeting political activists.  Newlines Institute’s Nick Heras moderates the discussion.
