Iranians Plan Nationwide Protests On 40th Day Of Mahsa Amini’s Death

Tuesday, 10/25/2022

Calls for rallies and strikes are pouring in for Wednesday, October 26, the 40th day since the death in custody of a young woman that sparked the protests, a culturally important tradition.

People from various groups and strata of the Iranian society have announced calls for gatherings in numerous cities to mark the 40th day of Mahsa Amini’s death, which carries immense significance in the Iranian culture. 

Young grassroot activists in Tehran -- calling themselves Youths of Tehran’s Neighborhood (Javanan-e Tehran) -- that have mobilized thousands of protesters in several towns and cities since the current wave of protests began, published a notice on Tuesday urging all Iranians to gather in the their neighborhoods, around the universities and markets around noon.

"We back every measure against the tyrannical and corrupt Islamic regime, and we keep the fire of this revolution burning” in order to garner more support through participation of people inside and outside of Iran, they said. 

Holding rallies on the 40th day of people died during the Islamic Republic’s crackdown on protesters is reminiscent of a similar turn of events 44 years ago, during the revolution against monarchy that culminated in the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Marking the 40th day for people who were killed during the revolution turned into fresh protests that fueled the movement.
