Portraits from the frontlines of global protests
Protests swept the globe in 2019, with millions of people taking to the streets from Catalonia to Colombia, and Haiti to Hong Kong.

Yet amid the gunfire and clouds of tear gas, there was a feeling of solidarity as demonstrators drew on each other's determination and strength.

Reuters photographers in more than a dozen countries documented the depth of feeling that linked disparate movements.

Baghdad, Iraq
Umm Mahdi, 66, an Iraqi demonstrator poses for a photograph during the ongoing anti-government protests, in Baghdad, Iraq November 25, 2019. "I come to protest for rights and against illegitimacy. The government is illegitimate, there are no jobs, no housing, no services and the protesters have a good cause. I should be with them because I am like a mother to them," Mahdi said. "If the government provided jobs or housing or services to citizens the youth would not be protesting and sacrificing their lives." "My message to the protesters is: 'I am with you until the last day of my life, I support you - keep your peaceful protests going until you get your rights,'" she continued. "I will not back down from participating in protests until our youth get all their rights from the corrupt and unjust. Any people who protest do so because they have been oppressed." she said REUTERS/Thaier al-Sudani SEARCH "GLOBAL PROTESTS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
