Iran officials call for severe crackdown on women who flout the hijab
A member of the regime’s parliament called for State Security Force’s intensifying crackdown on women in reaction to their open opposition to the compulsory veil.
“In addition to promoting the culture (of Hijab), combating women who remove their Hijab requires the action of the State Security forces,” Ali Akbar Karimi, member of the regime’s parliament from Arak said while calling for more vicious crackdown on women.
Referring to the growing open opposition to the mandatory veil in public, he said, “There are more and more examples of women who flout the veil in the open and because they are not dealt with, these behaviors have become prevalent in society.”

Message of Prof. Dr. Rita Süssmuth to the International Conference at Ashraf 3
When I think of your life, it becomes clear that we are looking for examples which show a different kind of approach in relations between women and men.
Living in partnership and equality, such that it becomes possible for women to enjoy a different status in society, a different level of recognition that has been missing for a long time and is still not available in a number of countries.
Before you recognize someone as a man or a woman, you see them as a human being. The stereotypes of strong male and weak female would no longer be credible as both of them are human beings.

The flood of poverty and misery will sweep Iran’s regime
In a letter to regime president Hassan Rouhani, the heads of the commissions of the Majlis (parliament) warned about the living conditions of the people. While shedding crocodile tears for the people, the unemployed, the hungry, and the garbage-collector children among others, these regime officials ended their letter by saying: “When the flood starts, you won’t be able to block it.”
With the Majlis being dominated by Rouhani’s rivals, the chairs of the Majlis commissions mostly blame the government’s inefficiency for the current situation in the society. But what the letter clearly shows is that regime officials are terrified of the “flood” of the unemployed and starved masses who, once mobilized, will sweep the regime in its entirety.
Also during this week’s Friday prayers, regime officials warned the Majlis and government about the current situation of the livelihood of the people.
Sunday, June 28, 2020, marks the 226th day since the beginning of the nationwide Iran protests.
