Video: Iraq's Internet Blackout Continues

From Al Jazeera. Any opinions expressed are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.

Iraq has been engulfed in violent protests in the past few weeks as soldiers fired live rounds into crowds.

But this has only entrenched the protesters' position as they demand a complete overhaul of the political system.

The government has cut off access to the internet, as it says that its youth are being influenced by what they read.

But the protesters have found other means to get around the online silence.

    When are they going to get rid of the Iranians in the Iraqi Government? The protesters want this also,so if you want the citizens to stop protesting, get Mahdi out, and Sastini too.
