Baghdad (CNN) — Iraqi activists and a gamut of groups ranging from intellectuals to unemployed workers to widows are preparing for large demonstrations Friday in al-Tahrir square in central Baghdad, along with large protests in most of Iraq’s provinces.
The organizers have used Facebook, Twitter and websites to circulate invitations for demonstrations on February 25, calling them the “Iraqi revolution.” A Facebook page called “The Iraqi Revolution” includes still pictures and videos of previous demonstrations in Iraq and claims nearly 20,000 supporters.
