🇮🇷 Iran protests: 450 killed by regime 2,000 injured by regime 7,000 detained by regime 🇺🇳 U.N. Human Rights Council reaction: 0 resolutions 0 emergency sessions 0 commissions of inquiry Why, ?
Protestors in Iran are met with increasingly deadly crackdowns by the government. We stand with the people of Iran and their right to peacefully protest. This regime cannot continue its repression and abuse of the Iranian people.

This is appalling and awful. Protestors never deserve to be gunned down in an ambush like this. Totally disgusting.
In Iran, from 180 to 450 people were killed in four days of intense violence in November, but only now are details coming out. Last big wave of protests in 2009 left 72 people dead over a much longer period of ten months.
“Most of the nationwide unrest seemed concentrated in neighborhoods and cities populated by low-income and working-class families, suggesting this was an uprising born in the historically loyal power base of Iran’s post-revolutionary hierarchy.” 1
