Today marks 20 years since the 1999 Iranian student uprising. Known in #Iran by its “ground zero” as “The Disaster of the Ku-ye Daneshgah Dormitories”, the uprising - sometimes likened to 1989 #Tiananmen Square protests in China - carries great historical significance.
THREAD /1
The background: on July 7, #Iran’s judiciary - using a new, tougher Press Bill - ordered the closing of daily Salâm, which had since 1991 criticized conservatives in power. Salâm was then considered one of numerous pro-reform #newspapers that since 97 election of Khatami … /2
… had exposed #corruption, #injustice, #inequality + demanded transparency, justice. The banning of Salâm + new law to curb #pressfreedom - marked beginning of hardliners’ campaign to crush the blossoming civil society and political mobilisation connected with #reformism. /3

A9. I want to see us writing plays and film scripts. We ought to be in the small screen and the big screen.
#CripLit
A9. We need more documentaries by us as well. Technically not writing, I know.

We can’t be letting the #Afflicted series of the world misrepresenting us. We need more #Unrest type projects.

#CripLit
A9. It would also be great to see more of us on YouTube.

That’s where the upcoming generation is all day, there and Instagram.

They watch far less regular TV. We need to write shows for their fave network.

A5. From decades of activism through my other identities & my cultural background, it’s easier for me to see how everything is related.

Illnesses that are portrayed in media anywhere in the ballpark of properly get attention & research.
#MedTraumaChat
A5. There’s so much silence around #cancer that we only see one small sliver on tv.

And that one small sliver tends to correspond to the outsider view people have.

I signed this petition. I never sign online petitions. But #Afflicted cannot be allowed to stand. chn.ge/2LcFWGj via @Change
Documentaries are meant to give a view of a subject or topic on a FACTUAL basis. Their opinion isn't supposed to be centered unless the subject is themselves.
#Afflicted is heavily slanted toward the erroneous assumption that the chronically ill patients are

faking,

have psychological illnesses rather than physical diseases,

or somehow in denial.

And I ask you- to what end?
