One Hundred days of Thawra, of revolution, is the story of part of Iraq today. After decades of violence in so many forms, civil society appeared to be numbed, but for the first time in years, in the autumn of 2019, people rose up in mass protest. Iraqi citizens rallied, transcending divisions, in a bid to bring down a dysfunctional, sectarian and corrupt system. The protests triggered a violent crackdown as protesters occupied streets and barefoot kids faced off against riot police. The rebellion, both determined and ingenuous, is a cry of rage, and a cry of hope for an entire generation.
