Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced that the regime has squashed the uprising that took place the last few weeks. The protests left 22 people dead and 3,700 arrested.

Remember, people used social media and the internet to tell the world about the protests since Iran doesn’t have a free press and the regime told state media not to report on it. To stop them, the regime shut down the internet. Yes, that helped them cut off access for the world to see the protests, but it also wrecked havoc on those who did not even participate.

Protests - December - End - Regime - People

The protests that began on December have come to an end after the regime arrested 3,700 people and 22 people died. From CNN:

Tehran member of parliament Mahmoud Sadeghi said Tuesday that 3,700 people had been arrested, including 40 to 68 students, in six days of protests that broke out in late December.

Fact - Security - Organizations - Arrests - Time

He added that “due to the fact that several security organizations had made the arrests, it will take some time to give an accurate count,” according to the Iranian parliament’s news agency.

Apparently Khamenei still believes that outside sources caused the protests because he told the U.S. and Britain and any other nation that supposedly wants to overthrow the regime that “you’ve failed, and you will fail in the future, too.” The man went on a tweetstorm:

University - Tehran - Students - Authorities - ABC

The University of Tehran has started to track down its students that authorities have arrested and will try to get them released. From ABC News:

Some university students separately have been arrested even though they haven’t taken part in the demonstrations, said Nassim Papayianni, a London-based researcher on Iran for Amnesty International. She said authorities have described those arrests as “preventative.”

Mass - Questions - Assistance - Care - Custody

The mass arrests raise questions about those detained receiving legal assistance and proper care while in custody, she said.
