Iraqis march in ‘day of rage’

Don’t they know that they were already liberated? Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld told us so and we know that they’ve never been wrong about anything.

Hundreds of Iraqis have converged on Baghdad’s Liberation Square, as part of an anti-government rally named the “Day of Rage” organised mainly through social networking site Facebook.

About 600 protesters are said to have already gathered on Friday, which comes after weeks of scattered protests around the country calling for an end to corruption, shortages of jobs, food, power and water.

More people are expected to join the demonstrations after Friday prayers.

But turnout may be affected by a speech by prime minister Nouri al-Maliki on Thursday, warning warning of possible violence by al-Qaeda and members of Saddam Hussein’s banned Baath party.
