Since my earlier tweet on #IranProtests, I have been asked what the #Biden administration should do that would be constructive and supportive of the protestors, who may have been triggered by food prices but whose anger is much deeper and more profound. Here are 3 ideas: 1/5
1) @WhiteHouse should announce that, in accordance with longstanding policy, US pursuit of a new nuclear deal in no way constricts our right and duty to speak out in support of #Iranians exercising the universal right of free speech and assembly. 2/5
2) @POTUS should task #NSC to coordinate all-of-government support to help Iranians access the internet, circumventing #Iran’s draconian restrictions. This should include outreach to tech companies to assist/support online access for people of #Iran. 3/5

1. ریشه های آگاهی بین مردم قوی تر شده، شاید برای اولین بار نام این شهرها و به قول رژیم حاشیه نشینها که علیه رژیم و سپاه تروریستش و ملا ها اعتراض می کنند را شنیده باشیم.
این نشون میده ریشه های آگاهی در زیرین ترین لایه های جامعه نفوذ کرده.
2. این شهر ها بالای شهر تهران و دیگر شهر های بزرگ نیستند. این ها شهر هایی هستند که پایگاه سنتی رژیم سفاک بوده.
و رژیم آنها را «مستعضفان» نامیده و خودش را «نماینده» آنها دانسته . اما همین به قول رژیم «مستعضفان» به این نتیجه رسیدند که مشکل از ساختار رژیم است و
3. و تا زمانی که ریشه این رژیم ضد بشری-ایدئولوژیک سوزانده نشود ایرانی روی سعادت نخواهد دید.
یاد #سعادت_هادیپور گرامی باد💔

Quelques éléments de réflexion sur les événements en Iran :

Protestations
1. motivées par la hausse du prix des nouilles, c’est une révolte caractérisée par sa grande violence et la haine revendiquée du régime dans son ensemble. Cette radicalisation était attendue, elle a commencé suite à l’échec de la « révolution des œufs » fin 2017 :

Was im #Iran abgeht und wie es zu #IranProtests2022 gekommen ist:
Schon wieder haben die Proteste „am Rande“ begonnen, in Kleinstädten und in ärmeren Regionen, wie im Dez. 2017/Jan. 2018 und November 2019 und im Gegenteil zu älteren Protestwellen, die in Großstädten anfingen./
Die südwestliche Provinz Khuzestan, die, obwohl sie das Zentrum der Erdölförderung des Landes ist, zu den ärmsten und unterentwickeltsten Regionen des #Iran zählt, ist wieder der Startort und der Hotspot der Protesten. /
Im letzten iranischen Jahr sind die Preise der Waren, die zum Einkaufswagen der unteren Schichte gehören, massiv gestiegen: Hühnerfleisch 21%, Eier 50%, Milchprodukte 60%.
Nun hat die Regierung erneut eine Preissteigerung für Hühnerfleisch, Ei, Milch und Speiseöl angekündigt./
