Thread: A beautiful dedication to #NikaShakarami by a street performer in #Iran. She asks passerby to sing along to her version of the song performed by Nika before she was killed. The original song is from a 1968 film called The Sultan of Hearts. 1/4 #IranProtests2022
The performer has re-written the original lyrics as an ode to Nika. The new words appear on a piece of paper across the sidewalk. The sign next to her reads, "Don't laugh at me, guys!" This is a reference to what Nika said out of shyness before she sang for her friends. 2/4 #Iran
I have not done justice, but here's my attempt at translating the new words:

The beautiful Nika, you with this song
Targeted our hearts
You will sprout from the debts of this land
To infinity
Now that we're far away from you
We're full of hopes & commotion

It is 1:30 PM local time.

This is students today in Sanandaj.

Today in Iran there is a sense of calm before storm as both the protesters and security forces are preparing themselves for the Saturday.

Today there were protests in Zahedan, following the bloodbath whereby 93 were killed.

In Mashhad, as a protests, the fountains were turned to blood (obviously just red colour). Something that had been done earlier in Tehran too.

We have several "unconfirmed" reports that the regime is calling

- retired IRGC staff, if they are in good shape and especially if they own bikes
- martial arts coaches and trainers

to join its security forces.

This is Sonya Sed, a popular influencer on Instagram, Tiktok, and Youtube. She is known for living a lavish lifestyle filled with luxurious items and MONEY. This woman constantly brags about having a rich husband who spoils her as seen below: #mahsaamini #Oplran
How does he have so much money you may ask? By working for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Sonya's husband's name is Hootan Mazloomi. #mahsaamini #NikaShakarami #IranRevolution2022 ImageImage
Tell me, Sonya joon, why is it that you're allowed to dress like this while your husband MURDERED Mahsa Amini over a strand of hair? #MahsaAmini #iran #IranRevolution2022 #murderer Image

OK, I have been busy (and also a bit unwell) today now opening my twitter and I see, my timeline is full of protest videos!

There has been some calls for protest by Iranian Arabs of Khuzestan for tomorrow Friday - which I felt was perhaps a bit too soon and might clash with the typical Saturday protests.

But Khuzestan already started tonight:

Ahvaz, the capital (1.3M)

More Ahvaz.

This is quite significant since Khuzestan has been somehow quiet.

Instead of celebrating #NikaShakarami's 17th birthday, her mother mourned her death. She later dared to deny the regime's claim that Nika had died falling from a tall building. Here's our @cbssaturday report on some of the female victims of the #IranProtests...
... the authorities' use of force, and how some people are responding, as the #IranProtests2022 enter their 4th week.

"A lot of reports of use of tear gas, use of batons ... security forces’ use of shotguns, assault weapons..."

Sarina Esmailzadeh, 16, beaten to death by Iranian security forces for protesting for women’s rights in Iran. Nika Shakarami, 16, killed after burning her headscarf in protest. Hadis Najafi, 23, shot multiple times during demonstrations sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, 22,
after her arrest by the country's morality police. Just four young women out of more than 100 protestors to pay with their lives. An estimated 1,200 more are in police custody. Please don’t turn away, keep the world watching. Every one of us can lend our platform and together
we can make some fkn noise. I stand with the women of Iran.

Let’s talk about #NikaShakarami. This is so hard to think about, and won’t be easy to read, but I hope you’ll do so anyway…
This is Nika, 16, one of thousands of Iranian girls protesting the murder of Mahsa Jina Amini. On 9/20, while out in Tehran with friends, chanting Mahsa’s name, she was separated from her group. She messaged friends letting them know she was being chased by security forces.
That was her last known contact with anyone. Her phone was shut off and her accounts deleted. Stealing phones and accessing accounts is a common move of these "security forces" in Iran.

Nika was missing for ten days as her loved ones searched for her.

Then her body turned up--

Nika Shakarami, 17, was killed in Tehran by #Iran's security forces during the recent #IranProtests.

Authorities did not hand over her body to her family for ten days.

God knows what they had done to her...

Powerful message from #NikaShakarami's mother who refuses to be silenced about Nika's killing by #Iran's regime.

"Today was your birthday, my dear!" she says in this video. "Today, I say congratulations on becoming a martyr."

#Nika_Shakarami's family says her whereabouts was unknown for 10 days before they found her body in a morgue in the capital.

“When we went to identify her, they didn’t allow us to see her body, only her face for a few seconds," her aunt said.

Nika Shakarami, 17, was arrested during #IranProtests after burning her headscarf. After a week security forces delivered her dead body to her family w/ her nose fully smashed & her skull broken with multiple blows.
Outrage over her murder is now adding fuel to fire of protests.
Similar to case of #MahsaAmini, the Islamic Republic denied killing & even arresting her, claiming that she’d died after falling down a nearby rooftop. However, security forces stole her body and buried her secretly.
Conservatives are now warning she may turn into another Mahsa.
Iran’s state broadcaster on Wednesday aired the forced confessions of #NikaShakarami’s uncle. The footage analyzed by social media users clearly shows the security forces are there forcing him to say what they demand and apparently insulting him.

آنها ربوده شدند، شکنجه شدند، مورد تجاوز جنسی قرار گرفتند و وقتی کارشان با این کودک تمام شد، او را کشتند. این همان کاری است که رژیم اسلامی با این جوان 17 ساله بی گناه #نیکا شاکرمی هنگام شرکت در اعتراضات در ایران انجام داد.

Her name is #NikaShakarami. On Sep 20, she participated in protests in Tehran. She disappeared after. For 10 days, the family searched for her. No response. On Oct 1, intel forces gave her body to her family. But, they didn't let them see the body.
#MahsaAmini #مهسا_امینی
The authorities showed parts of her body to her mom and aunt. Her aunt wrote: "Only a part of her [Nika's] face and head have been shown. Her nose and skull were broken. They also stole the body and buried it themselves." #NikaShakarai #MahsaAmini #IranProtests2022 #مهسا_امینی
She said, "They also stole the body and buried it themselves." Then, they went after Nika's aunt and uncle and arrested them. IRGC-affiliated media claim she was not killed during protests. Remember, no reports on #MahsaAmini yet.
