رییس‌جمهور آمریکا در جمع نمایندگان دائم شورای امنیت سازمان ملل:

«شورای امنیت باید برای مقابله با خطراتی که جهان با آن روبه‌رو است، اقداماتی انجام دهد که شامل رفتارهای رژیم ایران نیز می‌شود که صدها و صدها نفر از مردم را در یک دوره‌ی زمانی کوتاه کشته. ۱/۴

آنها دارند معترضان را می‌کشند؛ سیستم اینترنت‌شان را خاموش کردند؛ مردم از آنچه در جریان است، خبر ندارند.

دلم می‌خواهد رسانه‌ها وارد شوند و بروند ببینند چه اتفاقی افتاده؛ چرا که آنجا وضعیت خوبی نیست. وضعیت وحشتناکی است. چیزی‌ست که می‌رود به زودی به یک رسوایی بزرگ در سراسر ۲/۴
جهان تبدیل شود. آنها دارند مردم زیادی را می‌کشند و در هفته‌های اخیر هزاران نفر از شهروندان خودشان را به خاطر اعتراض در یک سرکوب وحشیانه دستگیر کرده‌اند. فکر می‌کنم که رسانه‌ها حتما باید به این موضوع ورود کنند.

امریکا همواره در کنار مردم ایران در مبارزه‌ی به‌حق‌شان برای ۳/۴

New estimates are putting #IranProtests casualty counts at 1000+ killed and thousands more injured/arrested -- this is an unprecedentedly brutal crackdown even for the Islamic Republic's standards yet media coverage has been minimal. Why? (1/8)
My guess is they don't want to admit they were wrong about the regime and Trump's approach. Esp when compared to coverage of other protests (HK, Venezuela, etc) it's clear there are ulterior motives at work here. (2/8)
Whether it's preservation of the JCPOA or general attempts to delegitimize the maximum pressure policy, mainstream pundits seem more interested in using the Iranian people's suffering to advance their own interests rather than standing in support of their fight for freedom. (3/8)

@eu_eeas The religious fascists in Iran hid the dimensions of the crackdown, arrest and killing of protesters by sealing the Internet. This regime has to be stopped!
Only way is to bring them to justice.

A variety of so-called #Iran “experts”, alongside Tehran apologists/lobbyists, have always flirted with the “rally around the flag” notion to voice opposition to any firm policy against the mullahs’ regime.

#IranProtests proved them all wrong.

Let’s take a look.

تهیه گاز اشک آور

مواد مورد نیاز: گلیسیرین و بی سولفات سدیم.

نکته بسیار مهم: حتما فرآیند تولید را در فضای آزاد و با دستکش، ماسک و محافظ چشم انجام دهید، زیرا احتمال مبتلا شدن به آسم موقت و یا آسیب های چشمی وجود دارد👇

#IranProtests
یک ظرف دهانه باریک شیشه ای (شیشه نوشابه یا دلستر) را انتخاب نموده بشویید و کاملا خشک کنید. یک سوم شیشه را با ترکیب گلیسیرین و بی سولفات سدیم پر کنید. (ده قسمت گلیسیرین و دو قسمت سولفات سدیم). توجه کنید که بیش از یک سوم شیشه را پر نکنید.👇
یک لوله پلاستیکی قابل وصل شدن (مانند لوله آب کولر آبی) بر دهانه شیشه را به آن وصل کنید و حدود چهار سانتیمتر از لوله را در بطری وارد کنید و اطراف آن را با موم ذوب شده یا خاک رس مرطوب ایزوله کنید. (دقت کنید چیزی داخل شیشه نریزد).👇

#Iran’s regime launched a deadly crackdown after recent #IranProtests.

-At least 600 killed, 4,000 injured & 12,000 arrested. Numbers are rising.

In Mahshahr alone (SW Iran), the IRGC dispatched tanks & locals say as many as 100 were massacred.
#FreeAllProtesters

“The worst violence documented so far happened in Mahshahr & its suburbs”
“The IRGC piled the dead onto the back of a truck & departed”
“A local reporter in Mahshahr said the total number of people killed in 3 days of unrest in the area had reached 130”

As protests spread across Iran following a major gas price hike, locals in Mahshahr began establishing roadblocks and taking control over various areas of their city.

Invece di invitare il criminale ministro degli esteri iraniano Javad Zarif alla conferenza #Med2019 il governo italiano dovrebbe condannarne i crimini contro l’umanità ed attivarsi in seno all’UE ed all’ONU per consegnarlo alla giustizia. @ItalyMFA @ispionline #BanZarif
#IranProtests: dal 15 Novembre + 600 dimostranti uccisi. Il silenzio e l’inazione sono una VIOLAZIONE delle CONVENZIONI, delle LEGGI e delle NORME INTERNAZIONALI! #FreeAllProtesters #StopIranBloodshed #BanZarif @ispionline @ItalyMFA
Lei è NIKTA ESFANDANI, uccisa da un proiettile alla testa dal regime. AVEVA 14 ANNI. Il regime iraniano ed i membri del governo, tra cui ZARIF, devono essere processati per crimini contro l’umanità, non invitati a conferenze. #BanZarif @ItalyMFA @ispionline @luigidimaio

Much has been said about Iran disconnection from the Internet during #IranProtests, but one thing stands out: there was no central 'kill switch.'
When and whether an ISP disappeared to the global internet seems to have depended on who was their upstream provider.

For example: Respina stopped carrying most customers from Nov. 19 to Nov. 21; however, many networks with other providers remained visible or came up earlier.
This doesn't mean those other providers ignored Iranian government demands. From @caida_ioda, we see that while many networks appeared to be online (green), the actual signs of life (red, blue) were much more significantly impacted.

The internet was definite down for most.

#Iran #HRC, #MEK, #GenClark
War ein us-Millitär-Putsch im Iran geplant. Damit wäre nicht die echte Opposition der #Restartees, als Volk, wieder zur Macht gekommen, sondern die von #Clinton unterstützte #FakeOpposition, wie der @RestartLeader die MEK nennt.

@restartleader "Following people& media have things in common:
They are anti-Trump, Pompeo & Israel,
They love #HRC, #McCain& #Pelosi,
They support each other & have millions of $
According to 1000 of docs, they are affiliated with the #IRGC& the #MinistryOfIntelligence.
@restartleader This is precisely what Hillary #HRC was supposed to do, to bring the #MEK to power to run the government while #RezaPahlavi was the monarch in a constitutional monarchy.

We are hearing reports of a massacre in Mahshahr, Khuzestan province. Due to the lack of Internet connectivity in this province, we are not sure of the extent of the massacre. #Iranprotests #2019massacre This is what we know so far:

Protesting citizens in Chamran closed the road to the entrance of Mahshahr. After IRGC forces attacked them, they took refuge in a canebrake. IRGC shot the protesters in the canebrake. Their families only found out about it after the smell of their murdered bodies reached them.
Iranian “reformists” and the entire regime are united in their efforts to whitewash the Mahshahr massacre. They are trying to convince the public that the citizens deserved to die because they are a bunch of separatists and terrorists. #Iranprotests

SHORT THREAD

1)
@NordrumLars is being heavily criticized for gifting #Iran's regime with economic incentives despite the mullahs' brutal crackdown in response to #IranProtests.

Nordrum thanks Esfandyar Batmanghelidj (@yarbatman), a known #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist.
2)
This is Batmanghelidj alongside Hamid Baeidinejad (@baeidinejad), Iran’s Ambassador to the UK at the regime's London Embassy on Oct. 18, 2018, during a session with members of the British & Iranian business community focusing on propaganda against U.S. sanctions.

For those interested, this thread sheds light on Batmanghelidj and proves why is a Iranian regime apologist/lobbyist.

Meet @snarwani, a known #Iran apologist/lobbyist going the distance to whitewash the mullahs’ atrocious crimes in the brutal crackdown against #IranProtests.

Not surprised considering her being so fond of @JZarif & Tehran’s chief lobbyist @tparsi.
2)
She talks about “security”, yet she won’t mention the fact that ruthlessly attacking protesters is how Iran’s mullahs define “security”.

She claims Iranians “support their government’s regional role”…
In latest #IranProtests, Iranians were chanting:

“Death to @Khamenei_ir

and

“Not Gaza! Not Lebanon! My life for Iran!” in clear opposition to the regime & its regional role.

در ستایش خشم منجر به عمل
این روزها بسیاری خشمگینند و چه خوب. من بعد از 78 خشمگین بودم، بعد از بازداشتم در سال 82 خشمگینتر شدم، بعد از 88 در حال انفجار بودم. به این نتیجه رسیدم که یکی از کارهایی که باید کرد قطع منابع مالی این نظام از طریق تحریمهای اقتصادیست. #IranianProtests
این باور، سوگ، و خشم رشته تحصیلی، انتخاب شغل و حتی پایان نامه دکترایم را تحت تاثیر قرارداد. نزدیک به یک دهه از عمرم، و هر روز شش سال گذشته، صرف مطالعه، تحقیق، طراحی، و نوشتن درباره تحریم شده است.
امروز که نگاه می‌کنم به گمانم در به ثمر رساندن آنچه به آن باور داشته‌ام موفق بودم. فشار هویج و چماق برای رها کردن این پروژه بسیار و در مواقعی طاقت فرسا و افسرده کننده بوده و هست. آنچه در این ده سال من را در این مسیر نگه داشت همین سوگ و خشم دائمی بوده است.

Evident in @NCRIUS press conference 2Day: The protests showed extreme vulnerability of the regime, its isolation among own people. #IranProtests also showed that the Iranian people are capable to bring down this regime & willing to pay the price for it. The gains are irreversible
@NCRIUS As new information comes in, more details are available; we identified 154 of at least 450 killed during #IranProtests in 176 cities. Despite the killings, the uprising continues...
@NCRIUS The protests were very targeted focusing on the symbols of suppression and corruption, during #IranProtests.
