"Vom Boden der Pyramide steigen wir auf und klopfen an der Spitze an. Das 44. Jahr ist das Jahr eures Scheiterns!" So der iranische Rapper #ToomajSalehi in seinem neusten Song "Faal (Omen)" - eine Kampfansage an das iranische Regime. Nun wurde auch er zum Tode verurteilt. 1/5 Image
Vor einem knappen Monat entführten etwa 70 schwer bewaffnete Revolutionsgarden den Rapper, der sich in den Wochen zuvor versteckt hielt. In den vergangenen Wochen wurde er gefoltert. Nun wurde auch er zum Tode verurteilt. Sein Leben ist in Gefahr. 2/5
Mit seiner Musik klagt Toomaj seit jeher das Regime an. Frauen & Queers, ethnische und religiöse Minderheiten und Arbeiter:innen macht er in seinen Songs und Videos sichtbar und gibt ihnen eine Stimme. Über soziale Medien rief er vor seiner Entführung zum Widerstand auf. 3/5

در سال ۲۰۰۸ باستان‌شناسان ایتالیایی بقایا و استخوان‌هایی که به احتمال زیاد به لشکر کمبوجیه تعلق داشته و در حدود 2هزار و 500 سال پیش در شن‌های صحرایی در غرب مصر مدفون شده‌اند را کشف کردند.

سلاح‌های برنزی، دستبند نقره، یک گوشواره و صدها قطعه از استخوان انسان در بخشی
وسیع از دشت صحرا در نهایت امیدهایی را در رابطه با کشف سپاه مفقود شده پادشاه ایرانی کمبوجیه دوم زنده کرده است.
بر اساس شواهد تاریخی 50 هزار جنگجوی این سپاه توسط طوفان شن وحشتناکی در 525 قبل از میلاد مدفون شده اند.
این کشف در واقع اولین نشانه باستان شناسی از داستانی است که هرودت مورخ یونانی آن را به ثبت رسانده است.
بر اساس نوشته‌های هرودت، کمبوجیه پسر کورش پس از نافرمانی کاهنان معبد آمون از خواسته‌های وی 50 هزار جنگجو را از تبس برای حمله به واحه سیوه در مصر اعزام کرد که این سپاه

A short 🧵 translating & summarizing statements by abt a dozen Iranian academics
I will briefly review statements by these social scientists:
- Somayeh Tohidlou (IHCS)
- Gitti Khazai
- Emad Afroogh (Baqer Ol Olum)

In 1979, Khomeini seized power by using cassette tapes to foment a revolution with fiery sermons. In 2022, Iran’s TikTok generation defeat the tyranny of the mullahs by winning the gif wars.
🧶with gifs that show the revolution has penetrated into mainstream consciousness.
This is @AlinejadMasih. The government of Iran wants to kill her but she is immortalized here in just one example of her beautiful, righteous rage.
The government of Iran would like to erase the memory of #Mahsa_Amini but she too is immortalized in death as a symbol of innocence extinguished, her image carried now by others who are her voice on earth.

An Egyptian friend and I yesterday talked at length yesterday at how enthralled we are at the feminist revolution in Iran; especially that it centres feminism in the way ours in Egypt did not. We are thrilled that it will change the region and the world!…
The in the Arabic-speaking countries were sparked by a man — Mohamed Bouazizi, a Tunisian street vendor–who set himself on fire and in so doing sparked revolutions and uprisings in the region that have stumbled and remain incomplete.
And here now are women in Iran reigniting our revolutionary hearts with the feminism those Arab uprisings lacked.… #Mahsa_Amini #IranRevoIution

The Islamic Republic and it’s representatives are a fascist theocratic regime. They are evil in the truest sense of the word and beat, rape, terrorize, and kill not only their own people but travel across borders to do the same. 🧵
We must unite to rid the world of them like we did with the Nazis!!! They are an existential threat to global peace and stability. We would have a significantly more stable and prosperous Middle East if those monsters were kicked from power! NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!!!
Isolate the government, pull out of the JCPOA, expel all of their diplomats from across the globe, freeze all of their assets, deport all of their families, declare the IRGC a terrorist organization. If we could put Hitler down in WWII… we can do the same to the mullahs in 2022!

Iranian security forces killed 17 y/o protester by shotgun at point-blank range in northeastern city of Mashhad on Oct 8th, according to BBC Persian sources.

#Abolfazl_Adinezadeh was shot from less than a metre distance, sources quoted his doctor.
”Damage to liver and right kidney as a result of shotgun’s birdshot,” is given as the cause of death in his death certificate obtained by BBC Persian.
He was a happy teenager who loved making others smile, sources told me.

He was recently really frustrated because of what happened to #Mahsa_Amini, the corruption in the country and watching footages of Iranian women getting beaten up and killed in the streets, sources said.

مقاومت بعضی از اینفلوئنسرهای توئیتر در آنفالو کردن ماشین سرکوب مجازی جمهوری اسلامی بی‌نظیره!
در توئیت قبلی توضیح دادم که ناخواسته دارن چه کمکی بزرگی به اینها می‌کنن. مجبور شدم بیام راه‌حل رو هم نشون بدم. برای مانیتور کردن افراد بدون فالو کردنشون باید:
1- اول به عکس زیر دقت کنین👇
توی صفحه‌ی توئیترتون بر روی کلمه List کلیک کنید.
2- همونجوری که توی عکس پایین می‌بینید برای لیستتون اسم دلخواه انتخاب کنین. اون تیک پایین هم خیلی مهمه. وقتی فعالش کنین فقط خودتون می‌تونین این لیست رو ببینین. همینقدر امن و محرمانه :)
بعد Next رو بزنید.
3- این مرحله‌ی آخره. اون بالا اسم کاربری که می‌خواید مانیتور کنین رو سرچ کنین و به لیست ادش کنین. به همین راحتی! مثلا من mark رو سرچ و اد کردم. امیدوارم شر نشه :)
در پایان هم Done رو انتخاب کنین.

WATCH: #BNNIran Reports

Iranian Security Forces shot a young woman in the neck and left her unconscious on the ground in Mashhad during the #MahsaAmini Protests.

#IranProtests #مهسا_امینی #Mahsa_Amini
The images show a group of protesters attempting to assist a young woman lying on the ground, shot by Iranian regime forces during the fourth week of repression on a violent day marked by massive protests across the country.
The body remains motionless, the eyes open, and only the cries of despair of those present can be heard.

The video is similar to dozens others shared by #BNNNewsroom that escaped censorship by Iranian regime and gone viral to show the brutal repression of the security forces.
