Note by Gino d'Artali: The Zan, zendagi, azadi!> (Women, life, freedom) has just started and will only then end when khamenei and his puppets i.e. the morality police, the basij and the judiciary give way or go away!!
So here is where the protests continue and I'll continue to inform you about it. That's my pledge.

<<Iran's supreme court has accepted a protester's appeal against his death sentence for allegedly damaging public property during anti-government demonstrations, and sent his case back for review, the judiciary said on Saturday. Sahand Noor Mohammadzadeh, 25, was arrested on 4 October and sentenced to death two months later on the charge of <waging war against God> for allegedly trying to break a highway guardrail in Tehran and setting a rubbish bin on fire. He rejec-ted the accusations, saying he was forced to confess to his guilt and went on a hunger strike two weeks ago. Iran has already executed two people involved in unrest that erupted in September after the death in custody of Kurdish Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by morality police enforcing the Islamic Republic's strict dress code for women. Amnesty International has said Iranian authorities are seeking the death penalty for at least 26 others in what the campaign group called a push to intimidate protesters.
Last week, the supreme court accepted the death sentence appeal of rapper Saman Seydi Yasin but confirmed the same sentence against protester Mohammad Ghobadloo. Earlier this month, it suspended the death sentence of protester Mahan Sadrat, who had been charged with various alleged offences including stabbing a security officer and setting fire to a motorcycle. Iran hanged two protesters earlier this month: Mohsen Shekari, 23, who was accused of blocking a main road in September and wounding a member of the paramilitary Basij force with a knife; and Majid Reza Rahnavard, 23, who was accused of stabbing two Basij members to death.>>

<<Iran uses prison sentence against female protesters
News Center - The Iranian regime continues to commit rights violations by issuing prison sentences and using violence against women. Yesterday, December 29, the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Sari sentenced Majkan Kawsi, writer, translator, and researcher, to five years and five months in prison. Majkan Kawsi was detained in the house raid on her home in the city of Nowshahr. After being held in custody for 35 days, she was transferred to the Tonekabon prison. Before being transferred to the prison, she told her family that she had been subjected to strip search, verbal abuse and torture in custody.
Female university student sentenced to prison
The Islamic Revolutionary Court of Zahedan sentenced a female university student (21) to nine years in prison and 60 lashes.
Sepideh Salar sentenced to two years in prison
A Tehran court has sentenced Sepideh Salar, writer and child rights activist, to two years in prison on charges of <acting against national security and spreading lies to disturb public opinion> Sepideh Salar was arrested on October 3 and transferred to Evin prison. In the same month, she was released from prison on bail.>>

<<Actor, doctor, engineer: stories of Iranians sentenced to death over killing at protest
An actor, a radiologist, a poultry business employee, a karate cham-pion, an engineer – these are five men sentenced to death in Iran for alleged crimes linked to anti-regime protests. The charges raised against them included murder. With court hearings held largely in secret, their trials have been widely condemned as a sham. All are due to be executed in connection with the killing of an agent from the country's feared paramilitary forces, the Basij. The court says Ruhollah Ajamian, 27, was stripped naked and murdered on 3 November. But the circumstances of Ajamian's death are opaque. The alleged attack occurred at a protest commemorating a demon-strator, Hadis Najafi, who had been shot dead by security forces at a rally demanding rights for women. Tehran has forcefully suppressed peaceful protests that erupted in September, and rights groups accuse pro-regime units of killing hundreds of unarmed demonstra-tors. Officials seek to portray the rallies as violent <riots> in which security forces have been set upon. Verified information is scarce. Authorities have been no less hardline in their attempts to silence the families and friends of those on death row, warning them against speaking out. But some feel staying quiet could be worse. The Guardian has spoken to family and friends of all five men accused of killing Ajamian. Their testimony suggests that the five - none of whom appear to have been acquainted with each other - were probably forced to give false confessions.>>

<<Iran: 7 Baloch children subjected to rape in custody
News Center - The Iranian regime continues to commit rights vio-lations against Baloch people. The Baloch Activists Campaign, a Baloch activists’ campaign group based in Sistan and Baluchestan Province of Iran, has announced that seven Baloch children were sub-jected to sexual assault and rape in custody by Iranian intelligence officials. The seven children were detained in the protests in Sistan and Baluchestan Province. The campaign group did not share the identities of the children but announced that the children were subjected to sexual assault and rape in a detention center by Iranian intelligence officials, who spoke Arabic. The campaign group also announced that they would release a detailed report about the incident in the upcoming days.>>
Comment by Gino d'Artali:
The Baloch people have suffered discrimination, repression and mar-ginalisation for many years under successive Iranian regimes. Sistan-and-Balochistan is the second largest but least developed and most deprived province of Iran. In the east, the province borders the con-tiguous Baloch regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. During the late 19th century (1871-96), this part of Balochistan was split from the Baloch Khanate of Kalat by the British, who divided the country into British and Persian <spheres of influence>. However, Persia failed to establish its control over the area, and it continued to be ruled by local Baloch chiefdoms until its annexation by Persia in 1928 after a brutal military campaign. Since then, this region has remained in conflict with the Persian-Shia dominated centre.
Bloody Friday
A month after the assasination of Jina Mahsa Amani protests also continue in Iran's restive region of Balochistan, home to the Baloch-Sunni ethno-religious minority. Six more people, including three children, were reported to have been killed on Friday as Iranian security forces opened fire on the demonstrators in Zahedan, the capital of the south-eastern Sistan-and-Balochistan province. Earlier, security forces had killed at least 82 people in the city; 66 of them lost their lives in a single incident on 30 September, now known widely as <Bloody Friday>.

<<Iranian regime dismisses professors
News Center - The protests that sparked in Iran and Rojhilat following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini have continued for four months. Women and university students have been on the front line of the protests. Many university students have been arrested in Iran and Rojhilat until now. While the university students have been boycotting classes and taking to the streets to protest the regime for four months, the Iranian regime uses all kinds of methods to oppress students. Several days ago, many professors and lecturers announced their resignation.
Dismissal of professors
In the last few days, many professors demanding equality and free-dom have been dismissed while many students have been suspen-ded from universities. According to the received reports, Reza Omid, a professor at the University of Tehran, has also been dismissed from the university.>>

<<Iranian man commits suicide in France to denounce regime's repression
French authorities were investigating as suicide the drowning of an Iranian man in the city of Lyon, on Tuesday, December 27. The man had said on social media he was going to kill himself to draw atten-tion to the protest crackdown in Iran. Mohammad Moradi, 38, was found in the Rhone river that flows through the center of Lyon late on Monday, a police source, who asked not to be named, told Agence France-Presse. Emergency services intervened but were unable to resuscitate him on the riverbank, the source added. Mr. Moradi had posted a video on Instagram saying he was about to drown himself to highlight the crackdown on protesters in Iran since the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, 22, after her arrest in Tehran for an alleged breach of the country's strict dress code for women. <When you see this video, I will be dead,> Mr. Moradi said. <The police are attack-ing people, we have lost a lot of sons and daughters, we have to do something,> Mr. Moradi said in the video. <I decided to commit sui-cide in the Rhone river. It is a challenge, to show that we, Iranian people, we are very tired of this situation,> he added. <Mohammad Moradi killed himself to make the voice of revolution heard in Iran. Our voice is not carried by Western media,> said Timothee Amini of the local Iranian community.
<His heart was beating for Iran, he could no longer bear the re-gime,> said Mr. Amini, deploring that while the Ukraine conflict was covered <every morning> one heard <very little about Iran> in the news. Lili Mohadjer said Mr. Moradi hoped that <his death would be another element for Western media and governments to back the revolution underway in Iran>. She said his death was <not suicide> but <sacrifice to gain freedom>. Ms. Mohadjer said that Mr. Moradi in the video said he <could not live peacefully, comfortably here> while Iranians were being killed.>>

<<In Iran, doctors come to the rescue of protesters
In the early days of the wave of protests in Iran triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini, who died while in police custody for an <incorrectly worn> headscarf on September 16, a large number of protesters with eye injuries came to the hospital where Fariba (not her real name) works as a doctor. At the end of September, Fariba, her colleagues and the head of the department (which specializes in eye diseases and eye surgery) decided to set up a system to protect the injured from possible arrest by the secret services. <Our hospital is private, and most of the injured protesters who came to us had just fled a university or public hospital where secret services agents are everywhere,> said Fariba, 40. <We decided not to mention words like 'bullets' or 'shrapnel' in the patient reports. Instead, we put 'blunt trauma' and 'work accidents.'> Fariba and her colleagues also decided to treat these injured people free of charge. They have so far treated about 100 people. <This number shows that plastic bullets as well as rubber bullets are being used to target demon-strators in Iran. Those who are shooting know exactly what they're doing,> explained Fariba. This wave of repression has already killed at least 503 civilians, according to human rights organizations. It is impossible to know the number of demonstrators who have been injured. Outside of the hospitals, there are many individual doctors who are helping patients harmed during the protests.>>
