"We want from USA to cancel article 140 from Iraqi Constitution."
Article 140 states, "First: The executive authority shall undertake the necessary steps to complete the implementation of the requirements of all subparagraphs of Article 58 of the Transitional Administrative Law.
"Second: The responsibility placed upon the executive branch of the Iraqi Transitional Government stipulated in Article 58 of the Transitional Administrative Law shall extend and continue to the executive authority elected in accordance with this Constitution, provided that it accomplishes completely (normalization and census and concludes with a referendum in Kirkuk and other disputed territories to determine the will of their citizens), by a date not to exceed the 31st of December 2007."
The goal of the article is to reverse some of the forced arabization of Kurdistan that took place under the previous government.
I don't know what issue these protestors have with the article, but they clearly feel that Kirkuk is their home.
A protest in Amsterdam.
