Iran’s Uprising Continued On Wednesday

Today, October 5, marked the 20th day of the nationwide uprising and the Iranian people continued with protests and strikes across the country. So far, demonstrations and insurgencies have been recorded in more than 170 cities with 400 martyrs and 20,000 arrests nationwide. According to the latest reports from Zahedan, fighting is still going on in the southeastern city and many on both sides have been killed and injured.

Some reports indicate that the families of the arrested students and other protesters have gathered in front of the prisons to learn about the fate of their loved ones.

As the regime is losing millions of dollars every day by shutting down the internet, it is focusing on other ways to prevent the footage covering the uprising to be posted online. According to reports by the Iranian Opposition from various cities, security forces are shooting directly at people with mobile phones who are spotted capturing the scenes of protests and especially the crackdown of protesters. Also many have been arrested for just filming on the street.

Practices that once were exclusive to the brave Resistance Units are now widely implemented across all of Iran. Youth and ordinary people are tearing down posters with images of the regime’s officials or those who showcase the causes the state holds sacred. They also torch statues of the regime’s insignia.
