Protest held at Texas A&M showing solidarity for people living in Iraq

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - A number of Iraqi post graduate students at Texas A&M were making their voices heard on Friday night.

They held a demonstration at Rudder Plaza showing solidarity for fellow Iraqis. They say people in Iraq have been protesting their government for the past three weeks. They say people there are lacking basic needs and want to end corruption.

"We are missing power over there, clean water, all of these things are kind of not available. We are having problems with security, the economic crisis," said Ahmed Taiyeb, a protester.

The group wants their message to reach a universal audience and hopes more people will help their cause.
