Coverage Of Nationwide Protests In Iran On September 26

Monday, 09/26/2022

Amid an internet shutdown for mobile phones in many locations, reports and videos did trickle out from Iran, showing protests in many cities and towns.

Students in many universities have announced a strike until all students arrested since last week are not freed and authorities do not resume normal classes and lectures. Universities suspended in-person classes last week, to reduce student presence on campuses and chances of large protests.

Reports and a few images received Monday evening show that there were protests in Tehran, Sanandaj in western Iran, Tabriz in northwest, and Mashhad in the east. It is entirely possible that as in previous nights there are also protests in other cities, but the internet disruption delays news and images being posted on social media.

Some protesters and activists are calling for industrial and commercial strikes to paralyze the government, but so far only teachers have announced a strike. Some voices say that without general strikes and around-the-clock protests it is not possible to topple the regime, an outcome most are pursuing.

Most protesters also do not take their cell phones with them because in case of arrest these will be confiscated and any text or image stored could be used against a detainee to prove subversive activities.
