Support - this shouldn't need an RM. Jim Michael (talk) 13:18, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
Support, seems like it would be uncontroversial as they are not solely in October, and there does not seem to be other 2019 Iraq protests that this would conflict with. -Thespündragon 21:20, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

I think the "Timeline" section of this article would easier to read and keep up to date if it was organized in chronological prose instead by city. Charles Essie (talk) 07:01, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I agree, I'll make the change. --Cerebellum (talk) 09:37, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 24 November 2019Edit

I don't understand why the article mentions that Sadrist movemnt is the only oppsoing side of the protests. Al-Sadr is a part of the government 'and he is only a Show-off man. The protests are led by civil activits and the secular movments and of course the Iraqi people as they are. The article shows that the Iraqi Protests are only a religious conflict led by a religious figures. But it's true revolution demanding for rights. Alish iraq (talk) 18:54, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

  Not done. It's not clear what changes you want to make. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 22:21, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi , Please Can you change the lead figures of the October revolution , Muqtada AL-Sader and Al-sistani not are the real leaders of the protest , The only leader for this revolution is the Protesters himself and the Martyrs . Thanks A lot . Murtada Kamil019 (talk) 19:03, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

  Not done. Please establish a consensus for this change before making this edit request; something like this will require a little discussion. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 22:26, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Request to change parties to civil conflictEdit

The protestors side are the Iraqi people in general, including civil activists and students. It's not led by any movement. Simple revision to the news and references can clarify the situation. It does not need a consensus.

Please see the Arabic version of this articleEdit

The Arabic version shows in the section of (parties in civil conflict) that the protestors' side is (protestors, civil activists, college and school students). It does not show any movement which is an accurate description.

Shouldn't this be on the 'In the news' section on the main page?Edit

The infobox says that the protests are still happening (1 October 2019 – present), but this article is not in the ongoing section on the front page. is there any reason for this? ArkayusMako (talk) 12:33, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

ArkayusMako At the bottom-right of the In the news box, look for a link Nominate an article. Click and read. There are guidelines and there are candidates, and there are procedures. All is transparent. Boud (talk) 20:28, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
Okay, i was just checking there wasn't a specific reason this isn't there. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArkayusMako (talkcontribs) 21:20, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 30 November 2019Edit

Add the Prime Minister announcing his resignation on 29 Nov to the "Timeline" section. Reference already included in the introduction: 2001:67C:10EC:574F:8000:0:0:113 (talk) 20:32, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

2018 separation completedEdit

For info, I deleted a lot of material duplicated at 2018 Iraqi protests here. There may be a bead of info or two hidden in there to recover... 🌿 SashiRolls t · c 00:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Aspect-specific sections and splitsEdit

As in Template:2019 Hong Kong protests, if there is enough material in the sources (I think there is), and if there are enough active editors (probably not me), then starting to organise some of the aspects together (as per the sources and/or similar aspects to the HK case) in thematic subsections, rather than only as a chronology, might make sense. If/when the material is too much for individual protest articles, then it could be split, in a somewhat similar way to the HK articles. Assassination has been a security services tactic in Iraq since (at least) the post-2003 invasion period, by unidentified groups (possibly multiple groups), so it's a known, long-term phenomenon, for eliminating Iraqi academics and dissidents, with a lack of serious, independent investigations. (This was a comment I put at what was the 2018-2019 article, but now it only makes sense in this article.) Boud (talk) 09:52, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
