Coverage Of Protests In Iran On October 3

Monday, 10/03/2022

As Iran’s ruler Ali Khamenei was delivering a speech Monday dismissing nationwide protests, students in a dozen universities began rallying against his regime.

The Sunday attack by security forces and vigilantes on students at Sharif University in Tehran arresting dozens of young people angered students in other universities.

Protests were taking place on Monday in Mashhad University, the second largest city, in Esfahan, the third largest city and many other universities. Security forces attempted another assault against students in Tabriz university, similar to what they had done in Tehran the previous day.

The protest mood spread to schools where teenage girls started writing anti-regime slogans on blackboards and taking off their headscarves once they left the school grounds, protesting openly in the streets. Theis phenomenon is perhaps one of the biggest challenges for the regime as attacking children will enrage the whole population.

Khamenei in his speech dismissed all that, claiming that all the protests in more than two weeks were planned by the United States and Israel, a theory most Iranians who witness prevailing conditions find laughable.

No reports about street protests were received Monday night, which would not necessarily mean there were no demonstrations. The government has almost cut off all Internet acess in evening hours, making it very difficult for people to connect to social media.

There was also a revolt among football (soccer) players of major teams, including the national team, weeks before the World Cup in neighboring Qatar.

Some players were taken into custody and warned against any statements in support of the protests. Players of the most popular club Persepolis all were wearing black wrist bands at a game on Sunday as a sign of protest. The only palyer who was not wearing it missed a penalty kick against the rival team and Persepolis lost, in what some people called “poetic justice”.

Iranian football (soccer) star Ali Karimi, who has become an icon for protesters and critics of the Islamic Republic, has tweeted addressing the armed forces.

"Hey soldier, what are you defending?"

“Are you defending rampant corruption? Are you defending the children of regime insiders who have emigrated to the West and are having a good time? Are you defending Iran’s humiliation and isolation in the world? Are you defending the poverty, prostitution, hunger, and misery among your fellow citizens?"

Oct 3 (Reuters) - Canada imposed fresh sanctions on Iran on Monday for alleged human rights violations, including the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old from Iranian Kurd who died while in custody of Iran's "morality police," the Canadian government said.

"These sanctions are in response to gross human rights violations that have been committed in Iran, including its systematic persecution of women and in particular, the egregious actions committed by Iran's so-called 'Morality Police,' which led to the death of Mahsa Amini while under their custody," the Canadian government said in a statement.
