Nach Hinrichtungen: Neue Proteste im Iran
Nach den Hinrichtungen dreier Demonstranten kommt es erneut zu Protesten im Iran.
Viele Iranerinnen und Iraner vor allem in Teheran reagierten empört auf die Exekutionen von Saleh Mirhaschemi, Madschid Kasemi und Said Jakobi amd verganenen Freitag und gingen - trotz all der möglichen Konsequenzen - erneut auf die Straße:
The execution of three political prisoners in Iran has sparked a resurgence of nationwide street protests.
The Tehran neighborhoods of Tehransar, ShahrakEkbatan, Sattarkhan and Aryashahr were rocked by demonstrations Saturday evening that continued until the early hours of Sunday.
Anti-regime slogans were heard elsewhere in areas across the capital.
There were reports of sporadic clashes with security forces attempting to disperse the protesters, who in some neighborhoods had managed to block the roads after setting fire to trash cans.
In the religious city of Mashhad, protesters chanted "The Islamic regime is the killer of Iranians." Demonstrations were reported in several other cities, including Abdanan in the western province of Ilam and Gorgan in the northern province of Golestan.
While security forces came out in large numbers to stop demonstrations being held, defiant Iranians staged protest roadblocks in the streets of their cities and voiced their anger by hooting their horns.
In den vergangenen Wochen war es eher ruhig gewesen und die Machthaber in Teheran schienen sich schon der Hoffnung hinzugeben, dass es ihnen einmal mehr gelungen sei, so wie 2019 auch, die Massenproteste mit Gewalt nieder zu ringen.
