Iran Protests Resurge In Multiple Cities

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Protests have reignited in multiple Iranian cities on the 40th day since Iran executed two men for allegedly killing a paramilitary volunteer during demonstrations protesting the death of Mahsa Amini last September after she was arrested by the country’s morality police.  While the protests seemed to have slowed in recent weeks, protestors could still be heard in some cities.  Online videos reportedly show renewed protests in Tehran and other major cities, with people in one video shouting, “Death to the Dictator,” a common refrain of the protests. Iran’s government has yet to comment on the renewed demonstrations. According to Human Rights Activists in Iran, 529 people have been killed and nearly 20,000 arrested in the government crackdown of the demonstrations.
