Iraq protesters demand education

According to Iraqi Human Rights Commission, about 8 million youths aged between 15 and 25 cannot read or write.

A makeshift library near the centre of protests in Iraq‘s capital is becoming a hub of learning.

It is occupied by demonstrators protesting against unemployment, poverty, government corruption and failing public services, including the education system.

And as the popularity of the building grows, so too does its range of titles.
