ANBAR / Aswat al-Iraq: Premier Nouri al-Maliki was charged by Anbar demonstrators with igniting denominational fires, they noted in a statement released today.
Sheikh Imad al-Dulaimi, an organizer of the Anbar sit-in, told Aswat al-Iraq that Maliki's recent statements expose his desire to ignite denominational fires in the country, which "will burn him first."
"Maliki knows that the demands of the demonstrators are legitimate and constitutional, but his government has neglected them and threatened the use of force," he confirmed.
He added that the protesters will write to the United Nations, the Arab League and international human rights organizations to protect the protesters.
Anbar demonstrations began on 22 December 2012, to demand the release of the innocent prisoners and rectifying the political process in the country on a "basis of real partnership."
Ramadi, the center of Anbar province, lies 110 km west of the capital, Baghdad.
