NCRI - The Iranian regime’s authorities heavily restricted the internet in an attempt to quell the anti-regime protests but the Iranian people have been evading the censorship through the use of virtual private networks (VPNs).
When the regime’s Supreme National Security Council first slowed down internet speeds, shut down certain applications, and even shut down the VPNs that Iranians have used for years to evade restrictions, tech entrepreneur M. Nouri was set back and his company, which employs 15 people, was heavily affected.
NCRI - Iranian regime’s deputy Labor Minister had said that there are two million hungry people in the country. A really shocking figure, says a regime’s MP.
Member of regime parliament’s Social Affairs Committee believes that with this many people suffering hunger, the total number of country’s deprived people should be much higher.
State-run IRNA news agency has reported on a meeting titled ‘The 2018 Budget: will it increase or reduce poverty?’, in which regime’s deputy Labor and Social Welfare Minister Ahmad Maydari said “according to domestic and international estimates, between two to four percent of Iranian people suffer extreme poverty, meaning they can’t afford to feed themselves, something also referred to as violent poverty.”
