About Millennial Review

Millennial Review started as a simple Tumblr page in 2015 with a small goal, support Bernie Sanders. He was a relatively unknown curmudgeonly socialist from Vermont. Exactly what we were looking for.

Well, maybe not exactly, but the closest thing we’d seen in American politics in our lifetime. In the months that followed we connected tens of thousands of committed activists, thinkers, and posters. Millions of impressions later, we’re still championing the vision of justice which attracted us to Bernie Sanders to begin with.

Outside of producing leftist content co-founder Trevor is a PhD candidate studying the environment. And co-founder Justin attended UCLA School of Law and does various lawyerings. Both are committed socialists, avid readers, prolific podcast listeners and hope you take the time to read a bit, listen a bit, support the cause and most importantly spread the message!

Over 40 Dead And 6,000+ Wounded Amid Violent Student Lead Protests in Iraq

Read Carefully

Tuesday afternoon student lead protests of the Iraqi government turned violent as protestors were fired upon by Iraqi security forces. The protests were largely spontaneous and concerned largely the country’s high unemployment, corruption and electricity and water shortages. The focal point was Baghdad and the largely Shiite south. That’s where security forces responded with tear gas and rubber bullets, water cannons, and even live ammunition.

In response many of the protestors have called on the government to shut down. To which Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi appeared on television and responded by taking to TV to tell protestors he would take their “legitimate demands” seriously.

Security forces enforced a curfew. According to NPR, Mahdi stated, “the security measures we are taking, including the temporary curfew, are difficult choices.” Additionally according to the Associated Press he promised a basic income for the poor, housing for the homeless, and to take more seriously the fight against corruption.

There has been ample international backlash to the response, with the UN’s OHCHR spokesperson stating, “we are worried by reports that security forces have used live ammunition and rubber bullets in some areas, and have fired tear gas and gas canisters directly at protestors.”
