Ebrahim Raisi, dubbed the "Butcher of Tehran," is now the regime's president.

He had a direct role in #Iran's #1988Massacre of thousands of political prisoners & will usher in a new era of domestic suppression & foreign terrorism.

#ProsecuteRaisiNOW
The people of #Iran have dubbed Raisi as the "Butcher of Tehran" for good reason.

The West can no longer justify appeasing this regime.

#ProsecuteRaisiNOW

Scenes of Raisi's endorsement ceremony today.
Despite claiming popularity among #Iran's people, authorities have dispatched a large number of security forces to prevent any possible protests on this day.

Workers in Iran today chant against the regime's #internetshutdown:

"They support corrupt people and fear the internet"

@netblocks reported significant internet disruption this week as the regime seeks to muffle #IranProtests

Chants of "Khuzestan has no water" in Tehran on Day 17 of #IranProtests.

The regime has been unable to end the protests despite a deadly crackdown and disruptions to the internet. The MEK report numerous similar anti-regime protests today in Shush and other parts of Iran.
There were also chants of "Death to the dictator" in today's protests in Tehran.

This was once a taboo in Iran. Khamenei & Raisi have lost their iron grip on society.

1) Why is #Khuzestan thirsty?
The people of Khuzestan have been facing the problem of lack of drinking water, destruction of farms, destruction of groves, and death of their livestock for many years.
Meanwhile, 5 rivers are flowing in Khuzestan province.
#IranProtests
2) The reason for this problem is the construction of dams and large tunnels to divert water from the Karun, Dez, and Karkheh rivers.
#IranProtests
3)Why were these dams built?
Many reports indicate that dams and tunnels are built for water use in IRGC military industries in the middle of the desert. Many state media have mentioned this issue.

Hi @POTUS & @SecBlinken,
You said you consider human rights to be an important issue.

These young men were gunned down and killed by #Iran's security forces as they joined protests over severe water shortages.

Nothing political. They just want water.

Any thoughts?

#خوزستان Image
#Iran's regime can always count on MSM, such as Al Jazeera & DW News, to spread its talking points & propaganda, and thus legitimize the ongoing massacre.

Several locals in Khuzestan province have been gunned down & murdered. There is plenty of footage proving this.
