Published on: 09/22/2022 – 17:35 They directly attack the forces of order which try to suppress the demonstrations, attack the police vehicles and the government buildings: the Iranian demonstrators show audacity news in the rallies that have been going on since September 16, the day of the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, following her arrest by the wall police. Videos testify to the virulence of their reaction, across the country. Mahsa Amini was arrested on September 13 by the Iranian morality police, the “Gasht-e-Ershad”, responsible for enforcing the laws on the compulsory wearing of the veil in the country. She was taken to hospital just hours after her arrest and died there three days later. The Iranian authorities claimed that she had suffered a “heart attack”, but the statements of the family of the young woman and the analyzes of doctors undermine this version. For the demonstrators, his death is directly linked to the treatment inflicted on him by the morality police. >> READ ON THE OBSERVERS: ‘I will never wear the veil again’: Anger swells in Iran after the death of a woman arrested by the vice squad Protests which began as soon as her death was announced were deadly. According to Amnesty International, at least eight people, including a child, were killed on September 19 and 20. Hundreds more were injured, some losing their sight from their wounds. Riot police did not hesitate to fire live ammunition here and there, alongside the use of tear gas and cannons water. But the repression has so far not undermined the motivation of the demonstrators, some of whom are defending themselves with new fervor in the face of the police. مردم نوشهر قوی دارن میرن جلو#مهساامینی polish.twitter.com/viu8aspbul— 𝔐𝔞𝔥𝔰𝔞 (@mahsaalikhaah) September 21, 2022 A video published on Twitter on September 21, 2022 Watch demonstrators jumping and tapping on police vehicles in Nowshahr from Tehran.
