Baghdad, March 2020

A Letter to Member States of the United Nations Human Rights Council

Esteemed President of the Human Rights Council,

Esteemed Members of the Human Rights Council,

S/ Call for Special Session Concerning Events in Iraq during HRC44 session

We, the undersigned Iraqi civil society organizations demand Member States of the Human Rights Council hold a special session during its 44th session in June -July 2020 to address current events in Iraq, where gross violations against freedom of expression and peaceful assembly are taking place, where intimidation and revenge campaigns have been waged against peaceful demonstrators, human rights activists and journalists since the beginning of the protests on 1st October 2019. We believe conduct a special session is vital in order to condemn those violations, to push for immediate action to stop them, and to ensure justice and accountability.

According to Amnesty International’s January 2020 report, the death toll has now exceeded 600 and over 25,000 injured among the peaceful demonstrators, human rights activists and journalists, including children and women due to constant use of lethal force by security forces and militias.

Despite the overwhelmingly peaceful nature of the demonstrations, local CSOs including the signatories to this letter have observed the increasing use of the live ammunition by government security forces and militias, and have also verified the escalation of violence and repression against the protest movement; i.e. assassination, kidnapping, arbitrary arrest, torture, sexual assaults, threats, and attacking journalists and media channels for their coverage of the protests. All these events and practices are proceeding in an environment of total impunity.

In making this request, we also call to hold a special debate during ongoing HRC43 and we refer to the Human Rights Council’s resolutions 24/21 and 27/31 of 2013 and 2014 concerning the crucial importance of the active involvement of civil society, at all levels, to promote good governance, transparency and accountability, in order to build peaceful, prosperous and democratic societies.
