The protesters blocked several main streets in the north and west of Baghdad with railway wagons, in the areas of Aden Square, Shaljiyah and Yarmouk.

In Basra, in southern Iraq, the employees of the Railways Public Company also organized a protest, warning that they will strike if their demands are not met.
