Demonstration in Kfri15/07/2012 14:26
ERBIL, July 15 (AKnews) – Residents in Kfri town in the Kurdistan Region marched in the streets to condemn the town’s lack of public services.
Seven civil and community organizations organized the gathering, entitled Enough Ignorance of our Town.
In a press conference the demonstrators pointed out their demands, such as opening directorates in the town, other towns should not take their shares, companies suspected of negligence or any misdeed should be penalized, and land should be allocated for people in the town.
Firas Karim, one of the demonstrators, said: "Kfri mayor's unwelcome conduct is huge disrespect towards the town’s residents."
Gathering organizer Zirak Ibrahim commented: "Our demands are basic and simple. People in the town have a right to ask for public services and penalize companies…"
Ibrahim added: "The mayor didn’t come to listen to people's demands and moved out from his building in front of us. Thus we ask Garmian administration to question him."
