The 21st of March, which is the first day of spring, will mark a new year for Iranians.
#Iran’s impoverished Nowruz…
The Persian New Year, is a time of celebration, when #Iranians go out to buy new shoes and clothes. They also buy everything from nuts to sweets & fruits for their Haft-sin tables and guests. They do some serious spring cleaning and prepare their homes for visiting family members
However, this Nowruz is very different from previous ones. Poverty, unemployment and severe economic hardships have gripped the more than 80 million population leaving around 80% under the line of poverty.

Senior cleric: #Iranians can tolerate hunger but not failure of revolution…
Ahmad Jannati:
“The people are willing to give their lives but not their religion,” he added speaking on behalf of the more than 80 million Iranians who have been disenchanted with the regime for years.
The only reason the regime has been able to survive for 4 decades has been its systematic use of suppression, torture and execution against any kind of opposition to its rule.…

IT BEGAN NOT by tapping enemy insurgents’ phones or capturing their emails, but by #FollowingTheMoney

Cache of 328 NS…

Aug. 15 2018, 13:00 p.m.

The Intercept's largest-ever SIDtoday release, with 328 documents

When the #NSA discovered that #Iran may have been buying computer chips from the #UnitedStates routing them through a U.S. ally
Potentially supplying them to detonate #bombs against U.S. forces in Iraq & #Afghanistan
It credited so-called economic intelligence with the find.
The solution wasn't a death blow delivered by the #military but rather a new regulation on the export of certain #technologies via the #CommerceDepartment which the #NSA said would end up “saving #American & coalition lives.”

Since August 2, ppl of #Iran have taken to the streets chanting “Death to the Dictator” in angry against the tyrannical government.
On Sunday, demonstrators clashed with government forces across the city while chanting: “High prices and inflation, misery of the people.
Plumes of smoke fill the city's streets as disgruntled #Iranians hope for a revolution
The continuation and the frequency of the protests throughout 2018, despite the imposition of pervasive suppression and daily arrests and executions designed to intimidate the public, vividly reflects one reality.

The last 8 months has been one of the most eye opening times in my life, both personally & professionally. The December uprising showed me the critical state of #Iran. It was always hard to get information on areas outside of Tehran. But the uprising opened a whole new world.
As protestors took to the streets, I watched dozens of videos of people expressing their anger & desperation. I watched regime forces shooting & beating poor & thirsty people. I saw the world react with indifference. I saw how how the regime used the nuke agreement 2 oppress
#Iranians. I always knew how terrible this regime was. But the extent of its destruction became more clear than ever. I never thought Rouhani would improve #Iran. But I hoped that the benefits of the nuke agreement would trickle down. Maybe 30% of returned assets would be spent

We already know how @SecPompeo's speech will be received by ordinary #Iranians. The sentiments are clear in nationally-representative opinion polling from January, when protests broke out across #Iran. These speeches are a sideshow for real mobilization.…
Perhaps unsurprisingly given its actions on the nuclear deal and the harsh reapplication of sanctions, nearly 70% of Iranians believe that the Trump administration's policy towards #Iran is "completely hostile." The figure is probably even higher now.
Importantly, journalists actually bothering to speak to Iranians in #Iran are also getting this clear message today.

Assessment of #Iran

1. Several provinces and cities are likely to run out of water this summer. A few cities are already experiencing lack of water. This is likely to lead to greater unrest.

2. The economy continues its decline with major capital flight reported.
Additional sanctions are likely to hasten the economy’s death spiral, leading to major unrest.

3. Overall the public mood in #Iran can be described as explosive. Contrary to some analyses, #iranians have not rallied around the flag in response to Trump’s policies.
4. The movement to overthrow the regime is growing. There is no one specific party or group that leads it, but younger Iranians seem to be a big part of it. Lack of centralized leadership has pros & cons but it prevents regime from crushing opposition easily.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.

[THREAD] In his #UNGA speech, #Trump claimed that “The good people of #Iran want change.” Our survey shows it's not the change he thinks.
