It’s so great to see the loving faces of the beautiful Iranian people on streets, as women defy the government-imposed dress codes, risking life imprisonment and execution.

An estimated 15,000 people are now detained in Iran following the civil unrest that followed the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman who was arrested by Iran’s morality police and accused of improperly wearing a hijab, or headscarf, while visiting the country.

Newsweek reports:

As thousands continue to rally across Iran’s capital city of Tehran, defying a brutal crackdown by Iranian forces, on Tuesday, the country’s parliament overwhelmingly voted in favor of the death penalty for protesters.

The decision came after recent calls from within the Iranian government to punish protesters in a way that would quell the demonstrations. In a letter signed by 227 out of 290 members of parliament cited by Iran’s state-run Press TV on Sunday, lawmakers asked to teach those arrested “a good lesson” so as to deter others from joining them.

Death sentences have been issued for many who protested Iran’s treatment of women, including well-known rapper Saman Yasin.

  • For those who don’t already know, Iranians are more like Europeans than their neighboring nations.

    It’s no secret that the US meddled with their nation’s government, creating the mess they have today, whether by accident or deliberately because American politicians are clumsy clowns in political freak shows called parties.

    America as founded was the enemy of no nation, but sought rather to be at peace with all nations – what happened?

    Instead of leading by moral example, corrupt American politicians lead by tricks and treats, leaving a trail of corruption and chaos behind them.

  • Are we supposed to be concerned about their business?
    And speaking of Kurds, how many of them were previously trained by US in order to attack Syria?
    I feel like it’s better to let them take care of their own business this time than wrongfully getting involved in their business (again)
