Babylon Observer Video Report: Iraq's Poorest Make Junkyards Their Home


WWW, January 2011 - In spite of billions of American "reparation" money supposedly aimed at "reconstructing" Iraq, about 25% of Iraq's population lives under the poverty limit.

People have to flee their houses because of sectarian violence that came with the invasion of Iraq and make the junkyards their new homes. Little children pick up trash instead of going to school, there is no running water and absolutely no medical care.
