The Lion of Iraq joins protests to curb the brutality of police dogs used against protestors.

ProtestBlog.org, 2019: The lion is said to have scared off the police dogs, as was its purpose. It appears to be a pet lion, quite tame, put on display wearing an Iraqi flag, principally if not exclusively for the purpose of taking the video. Nevertheless, the presence of a lion at a protest, or at least close to a protest with police dogs is a very powerful symbol. It speaks to the strength and bravery of the protestors in Iraq, where hundreds have been killed for seeking social change, at least some of them by police dogs.
