Iran protests 2018

Updates on the Current Mass Protests in Iran: “The political Prisoners Must be Freed”

At least 20 people have been killed and hundreds more have been arrested over the past 10 days. All 20 of the top most populated cities of Iran participated in the protests. The total population of the cities where protests occurred is at least 42 million people. However, there is no reliable statistics on the exact number of people who participated in the protests.

Mass protests in Iran followed by a heavy wave of arrest and oppression organized by various plain cloth militia, intelligent, and security forces.  More than 500 people have been arrested in Tehran alone since the demonstrations began on Dec. 28. Local news organizations say that more than 1,000 have been detained nationwide, and that is a conservative estimate. We have received reports that over 2000 people have been arrested since December 28, 2017. The average age of those arrested is reportedly under 25, said the deputy interior minister, Hossein Zolfaghari, to the semi-official website Jamaran. In Tehran, hundreds of people are gathering outside Evin Prison chanting “The political prisoners must be freed”.
 
Demonstrations have broken out mainly in dozens of smaller cities and towns, where unemployment has been most painful and where many in the working class feel ignored and marginalized.
