<<People continue to resist in Iran and Rojhilat: Another youth killed
News Center - The anti-regime protests that sparked in Iran and Rojhilat following the killing of Kurdish woman Jina Mahsa Amini on September 16 continue. At FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, Iran's players stayed silent during the national anthem ahead of their match with England to support the protests. Yesterday, the United States team defeated Iran's team 1-0.
People took to the streets
After this defeat, people took to the streets across Iran. The protes-tors chanted anti-regime slogans and demanded freedom.
Protests in Rojhilat
People also took to the streets in many cities and towns of Rojhilat such as Sanandaj, Mahabad, Kamyaran, Ravansar, Marivan, Saqez, Urmia, Baneh, Ilam, Kermanshah, Dehgolan and Qorveh and many cities and towns of Iran such as Tehran, Arak, Bandar Abbas, Qazvin, Tabriz, Qom, Isfahan, Rasht and Bandar Anzali. Iranian regime forces used violence against protestors. 27-year-old Mehran Samak was shot in the head in the city of Anzali by the security forces and many protesters were injured.

<<Iran: Mothers of Laleh Park declare support for <Jin, Jiyan, Azadi> uprising
News Center -While the popular uprising that sparked in Rojhilat and Iran following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini continues, the women's struggle for freedom with the slogan <Jin Jiyan Azadi> has spread all over the world. The Mothers of Laleh Park, also known as Mour-ning Mothers, issued a statement declaring support for the nationwide uprising in Rojhilat and Iran. <We are determined to fight all kinds of dictatorship and discrimination for freedom, liberty and social justice,> the mothers said in the statement. <Even now, we witness mass protests of Kurdish and Baloch fighters and the bloody and brutal repression of the government against protesters in the streets and hospitals and cities such as Javanrud, Mahabad, Sanan-daj, Bukan, Kamyaran, Piranshahr, Paveh, Saqez, Divandareh, Baneh, Dehgolan, Qorveh and other cities,> the statement said. <We, as the Mothers of Laleh Park, want freedom against dictatorship, and the elimination of all forms of discrimination and injustice by chanting the slogan, 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi'.>
The Mothers of Laleh Park, also known as the Mourning Mothers, are a group of Iranian women whose spouses or children were killed by government agents in the protests following the disputed Iranian presidential election of 2009. The group also includes relatives of victims of earlier human rights abuses, including mass executions during the 1980s.
The statement also includes demands of the mothers.

<<Iran general says more than 300 dead in Amini unrest
Tehran (AFP) - Iran has for the first time reported that more than 300 people have died in over two months of protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody. The Islamic republic has de-ployed state security forces against what it labels <riots> that broke out after the 22-year-old died on September 16, three days after her arrest for allegedly breaching Iran's dress code for women. <Every-one in the country has been affected by the death of this lady,> said Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in a video published by the Mehr news agency.
<I don't have the latest figures, but I think we have had perhaps more than 300 martyrs and people killed,> among them some of <the best sons of the country>, said Hajizadeh, head of the Guards' aerospace division. The Iranian toll includes those who have taken to the streets as well as dozens of police, troops and Basij paramilitary force members who have died in clashes with demonstrators or who were killed elsewhere. The latest official toll is much closer to figures published by human rights groups based abroad.>>

Real death toll:
By Gino d'Artali
30 11 2022

20 11 2022
Human rights activists have said more than 400 protesters have been killed and 16,800 others arrested in a crackdown by security forces.
22 11 2022
UN 300 death protesters
22 11 2022
Norway -based group Iran Human Rights (IHR) said that 416 people had been killed by security forces nationwide in Iran itself, including 51 children and 21 women.
27 11 2022
Tehran in the past weeks has periodically launched airstrikes against Kurdish groups i.e. people living in exile in Syria or in refugee camps leading to at least 300 of death and even more injured. It's obvious that for khamenei it's one way to try and pay back i.e. take revenge on the protesters of the 'Zan, Zendagi, Azadi' (Women Life Freedom) movement and the Kurdish people because Jina Mahsa Amini was Kurdish-Iranian killed by the basiji. Gino d'Artali, activist.
28 11 2022
Farideh Moradkhani, niece of khamenei and today again arrested because is an activist opposing his regime, said that the toll now is 450 people i.e. women, men and children.
30 11 2022
A teenager has been shot dead by the basij.

This brings the deathtoll i.e. people assasinated by the basiji to a 767. They gave their life because they from their heart and soul believed in the Zan Zendagi Azadi Revolution and the democratisation of their country and died as martyrs for their noble believes.

<<Iranian police 'aim to kill' using shotguns to repress protests
Iranian security forces have widely used shotguns to repress the protests exploding around the country. At least 20 protesters have died after being hit by shotgun blasts, according to Amnesty Inter-national. A member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's militia, the Basij, told us how security forces are trained to control protests.
Shotguns are used by all units of Iran's security forces: riot police, plainclothes police, and members of the Basij. Shotguns can indeed be used by police for crowd control: when fired at a distance using special ammunition like plastic pellets, they can be considered <less-lethal> weapons.
But that's not how they have been used in Iran.
Mostafa (not his real name), a member of the Basij, told us more under the condition of anonymity. <We had a few hours of intro-ductory training on <non-combat> weapons like these. We learned which weapons we are supposed to use in which situations. But our training was useless. Protests in real life have nothing to do with what we trained for. During our training courses, we were told to shoot at the ground if we are too close to the target. But no one does that in the protests. I try not to hit protesters. I shoot at the ground or in other directions to scare them and push them back. But not everyone is like me. Members of my unit aim at people to hit them, to hit them in the chest or head, to kill them.> >>

<<Politically-charged Iran-Us game
Longtime adversaries the United States and Iran face off on the pitch at the World Cup on Tuesday in a match that some Iranians fear may see further run-ins with stadium security or clashes with pro-government fans over raging protests back home. The contest between the two nations that severed ties over 40 years ago will be held with increased security to prevent a flare-up of tensions over the unrest that has gripped Iran since the death in custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini on Sept. 16.>>

<<How EU-made shotgun cartridges ended up being used to repress protests in Iran.
An investigation by the FRANCE 24 Observers team has found evidence that shotgun cartridges manufactured by French-Italian manu-facturer Cheddite have been used in the repression of protests in Iran. Shotgun cartridges using Cheddite components have been wide-ly used for hunting purposes in Iran since at least 2011, an apparent violation of EU sanctions that went into place that year. In its inves-tigation, the FRANCE 24 Observers team asked Iranians to send pho-tographs of spent ammunition recovered from protests repressed by Iran's security forces since the death of Mahsa Amini on September 16. The team analysed more than 100 photos and videos showing tear gas canisters, rifle bullets, paintball projectiles and cartridges from shotguns, which have been widely used by Iran's security forces. While most of the shotgun shells photographed were made in Iran, 13 shells recovered from eight different Iranian cities bore Cheddite logos.
Cheddite has factories in Italy and France, with headquarters in Livorno, Italy and Bourg-les-Valence, France. The company claims to be the world's largest maker of empty shotgun cartridges and firing caps, producing more than a billion empty cartridges every year. The company manufactures empty cartridges with plastic casings and me-tal bases that contain a spark-producing primer, and sells them to other manufacturers who fill the cartridges with explosive powder and pellets or other projectiles. Cheddite-branded cartridges found in 2022 protests Iranian citizens sent photographs to FRANCE 24 showing three Cheddite-branded cartridges they recovered from the protests that have gripped the country since September 16. An activist group sent in photographs showing an additional 10 Cheddite-branded cartridges found during the 2022 protests. A protester in the central city of Yazd sent photographs of a cartridge he recovered after security forces fired shotguns at him and other demonstrators on September 28. The cartridge has <Cheddite 12> engraved on the base, and <Shahin 2017/24> on the green plastic casing. The man told FRANCE 24: <When they shoot at people, they always try to pick up all the empty cartridges on the ground. This one had fallen down somewhere in the darkness. They did not see it, and I was able to find it when they were gone>. His account is consistent with other witnesses who told FRANCE 24 or reported on social media that the security forces routinely try to pick up empty shells from the ground.
EU sanction bars export of shotgun ammunition for 'internal repression'. EU Council Regulation No 359/2011, passed on April 12, 2011, prohibits the <export, directly or indirectly, [of] equipment which might be used for internal repression> in Iran, including <firearms, ammunition and related accessories>. Five sanctions experts told FRANCE 24 the ban extends to shotgun shells and their components, regardless of their intended usage or the chain of sale. Nicholas Marsh, senior researcher at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), said: <The regulation currently in force states that it is not allowed to sell shotguns of any type, ammunition designed for them and associated components. The restriction on firearms was added in an amendment on 24 March 2012. Since then, shotguns and their ammunition have been covered by the EU sanctions, and the sanctions are still in effect.> Mehrdad Emadi, an economic advisor for the European Union, added: <Cheddite is legally responsible, whether Iran bought the products directly or from a third party. Cheddite must vet its buyers and ensure that they do not resell the products to terrorist organisations or to countries that are banned under EU rules, as its products are not dual-use, but are designed to injure or kill.> >>

<<Iran releases more than 700 prisoners following World Cup win.
Iran has released more than 700 prisoners after the national team's World Cup football victory over Wales, the judiciary's Mizan Online website said Monday. It announced that <709 detainees were freed from different prisons in the country> following the 2-0 victory on Friday. Among those are <some arrested during the recent events,> Mizan Online said, making indirect reference to demonstrations which have shaken Iran for more than two months. It gave no further detail.
Other Iranian media separately reported that prominent Iranian actor Hengameh Ghaziani had been released on bail after her arrest for having supported the protests. Two of the most prominent figures detained over the demonstrations -- former international footballer Voria Ghafouri and dissident Hossein Ronaghi -- were also let out on bail, reports said. State news agency IRNA reported on Monday that former state television host Mahmoud Shahriari, 63, had been released after two months in prison for <encouraging riots>.>>

Opinion by Gino d'Artali: khamenei did not only release the prisoners - huray!- because of winning from Wales but also out of fear for more 'riots' and there will be 'till he gives in or gets lost!' = one of the demonstrators slogan.
