<<Iran want USA banned for 'offending country's dignity' over World Cup flag
It has long threatened to be one of the World Cup's biggest flash-points: the <Great Satan> against the <Axis of Evil>. But on Sunday the USA's match with Iran became even more highly charged after Iran's football federation demanded their opponents receive a 10-game ban for <offending the dignity> of their country. The extra-ordinary request came after the US Soccer Federation displayed Iran's national flag on social media, in a now-deleted graphic, without the emblem of the Islamic Republic - in support of protesters in Iran before the nations- Group B match on Tuesday. The US explained that it had decided to forgo the official flag on social media accounts to show <support for the women in Iran fighting for basic human rights>.>>

<<The family of an Iranian rapper detained for supporting protests over Mahsa Amini's death said his life was at risk after he went on trial behind closed doors on Saturday. Iran has intensified a crack-down on the protests sparked by the September 16 death of Amini after her arrest in Tehran for allegedly breaching the country's strict dress code for women. Toomaj Salehi, well known on Iran's rap scene, was arrested late last month after denouncing the regime and showing support for the protests, human rights groups said.<Dissident rapper Toomaj Salehi had the first day of his so-called 'trial' today in Tehran without a lawyer of his choice,> the New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran said on Twitter. Dissident rapper Toomaj Salehi had the first day of his so-called <trial> today in Tehran without a lawyer of his choice.
His family tweeted that his <life is at serious risk right now> as he faced charges of <enmity against God> and <corruption on earth> -- sharia-related charges that are capital crimes in the Islamic republic.
Salehi had disappeared at the end of October before appearing in a video published on November 2 by Iran's state-run media. The video claimed to show the first images of Salehi after his arrest. It depic-ted a tattooed man in a sleeveless black T-shirt sitting on the ground, wearing a blindfold and looking bloodied and bruised. The man says: <I am Toomaj Salehi. I said I made a mistake. I said... that you should run. I didn't mean you.> Activists condemned the recording as a forced confession extracted under duress. Salehi is one of a number of prominent figures to be arrested in a mass crack-down that has seen dozens of journalists, lawyers, civil society and cultural figures arrested. His detention came shortly after he gave an interview highly critical of the regime to the Canadian Broadcasting Cooperation. <You are dealing with a mafia that is ready to kill the entire nation... in order to keep its power, money and weapons,> Salehi said in the interview.>>

<<Niece of Iran's supreme leader calls on other countries to cut ties with regime
A niece of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has called on foreign governments to cut all links with Tehran's <murderous and child-killing> regime in a video posted online two days after she was arrested. The video of a statement by Farideh Moradkhani, a well-known rights activist, has been circulating online after it was shared by her France-based brother Mahmoud Moradkhani on Friday. Mahmoud Moradkhani said his sister had been arrested on Wednesday after going to a prosecutor's office following a summons. In the video Farideh Moradkhani condemned the <clear and obvious oppression> Iranians have been subjected to, and criticised the international community's inaction. <This regime is not loyal to any of its religious principles and does not know any law or rule except force and main-taining its power in any way possible,> she said in the video. She com-plained that the sanctions imposed against the regime over its crackdown were <laughable> and said Iranians had been left <alone> in their fight for freedom. It was not clear when the video had been recorded.>>

<<Iran's World Cup fans: 'Football is meaningless when children are being killed in Iran'
Iranian protests have spread into the stands and onto the pitch during the 2022 World Cup, as supporters - and the Iranian players - have used the event to speak out for and against the country's leadership. FRANCE 24 meets Iranian football fans in Qatar. <In Iran, it's im-possible to separate politics and football,> said Ali Houman, a 53-year-old engineer who travelled to Qatar from Canada to watch Iran's matches during the 2022 World Cup. Speaking outside Ahmed Bin Ali stadium prior to a game that saw Iran secure a victory over Wales, Houman carried an Iranian flag with a hole cut in the middle removing the symbol of the Islamic Republic. National protests against Iranian leadership have gathered pace since early September when 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in police custody after being arrested for not wearing a hijab. Protests sparked by outrage over her death have evolved into widespread revolt against the regime. In Qatar, Houman wanted to show his own support for the protest movement, but was surprised to see players on the Iranian team do the same. During their opening match against England, Iran's players stayed silent during the national anthem, the lyrics of which glorify the Islamic revolution of 1979.
'Players must do more'
Nearing the security gates to Ahmed Bin Ali stadium, Aran Gabdari was proudly holding a banner emblazoned with one of the Iranian protest slogans: <Women, life, freedom, #MahsaAmini>. <This slogan is everything we are deprived of in Iran. That's why we want a revolu-tion,> said the 31-year-old data analyst. <The point of football is to have a good time, but it's meaningless when adults and children are being killed in Iran.> >>

<<The power of women: acclaimed Italian author Elena Ferrante on patriarchy and protest in Iran. The award-winning novelist talks to journalist Shiva Akhavan Rad about the fight for equality in Iran.
Shiva Akhavan Rad is an Iranian freelance journalist. She worked as a psychologist before starting to write about film and culture in local Iranian newspapers and magazines. Elena Ferrante is the pseudonymous author of many books, including the four-volume Neapolitan Novels, which tell the story of two girls, Lila and Lenu, born in Naples in 1944, who try to create lives for themselves within a violent and repressive culture. Here the two discuss protest, patriarchy and the power of women. Rad Iranian women are living in a terrible condition. They take off their headscarves in protest against the mandatory hijab and walk the streets without covering their hair and without fear of arrest. Some of them go further and burn their headscarves and this is a sign of a big change in Iran.
In my opinion, being a woman in Iran is a political act. That's why some people believe that the movement that has formed in Iran today is the first feminist revolution in the world, which introduced itself with the slogan <Zan, Zendegi, Azadi> (woman, life, freedom). We live in a patriarchal environment and after reading your Neapolitan Novels and seeing the TV series I felt many similarities between the atmosphere of Iran and the atmosphere of Italy at that time, and I strongly psychologically identified with the characters of Lila and Lenu. I'm wondering what Lila and Lenu would do if they lived in Iran in these turbulent days? Or what would you do if you lived in Iran?>>

<<Iran players end silent protest at World Cup amid threats of reprisals.
Iran's football team half-heartedly sang their national anthem at the start of their game against Wales after they had faced fierce criti-cism from government officials for failing to do so at the start of the game against England. With their lips barely moving, the players had clearly collectively decided to sing the anthem, but the uncomfor-table performance contrasted with the vigour that the Welsh players sang their anthem. TV cameras cut to Iranians in the crowd in tears and even sobbing during the anthem. Many Iranians fans in Iranian colours but not waving the flag of the Islamic Republic booed the anthem, as did some Welsh fans. Some Iranians carrying a flag with the words 'Women, Life, Freedom' - a slogan of the protests that began after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody in September - were confronted in the stadium by security officials.
The Iranian team has been under severe conflicting pressure with warnings at home from conservative politicians that the players may face consequences on their return to Iran if they did not sing the anthem. But backers of the protests have been seeking more unequivocal support for them by the players. Carlos Queiroz, the team's Portuguese manager, had called on Iranian fans to stay away if they were not willing to support the team inside the stadium. At a press conference, Queiroz said of his players: <To make it seem that they are the only people who should be responsible for all the human problems of the world, I think you will agree that it is not fair.> Queiroz was singled out for booing by the Iranian fans, as was the striker Mehdi Taremi, who used a press conference to say the team had lost against England for non-football reasons and now wanted to focus on football alone. In a sign of the pressure being placed on sportsmen and women in Iran, authorities on Thursday arrested a former Iranian team captain, Varia Ghafouri, who was accused of insulting and damaging the Iranian national team and propaganda against the regime. Ghafouri, a Kurd and a member of the Khuzestan steel club, has been a strong supporter of the protests and out-spoken in his defence of Iranian Kurds, telling the government on social media to stop killing Kurdish people. Inside Iran, crowds gathered at Friday prayers to protest against the regime, including in Zahedan, where dozens of protesters were killed in September by pro-government forces. More than 18,000 people, of whom 555 were students, have been arrested in different cities. The Iranian gover-nment has said it will ignore a UN human rights council vote initiated by Germany and Iceland to set up an independent inquiry into the state of human rights inside Iran. The UN will conduct the investigation without Iran's cooperation.>>

<<The debate | Call it a revolution?
Back in September, when Iran's protest movement caught the world by surprise, conventional thinking was that with patience and ruth-lessness, the regime would eventually outlast whatever came its way. After all, that has been the playbook so many times since the Islamic revolution of 1979. But is this time different? We are now into the third month of what protesters are insisting is a revolution and despite ever-growing brutality - outrage over for instance last week's killing of a nine-year-old boy by unidentified gunmen in the western city of Izeh - what has gone from a women's movement to a youth movement is now starting to look like an uprising. That regime playbook also includes a familiar tactic: blame it on foreign agents. We ask our panel about the crackdown on minority Sunnis, Arabs, Azeris and Kurds, which comes complete with cross-border raids into Iraq. We also ask about what France's president has branded <hos-tage diplomacy>, with authorities in Tehran claiming the arrest of some forty foreign nationals, many accused of spying. Finally, there is that other insurance policy for a regime fighting for its survival: the race to develop the bomb.>>
