Iranian activists on Twitter have been taking to the social media platform to share videos and updates on the demonstrations, triggered by fuel rationing and price hikes, despite a nationwide internet blackout.
Glad that protesters have their eye on justice even as they’re escaping violence! The way forward is supporting the rule of law. Trials not summary executions are what breaks a cycle of retributive violence. Well done to this man & his recognition that Khamenei should be tried 👏🏼 https://t.co/vVVrcjRZTK— Gissou Nia/ گیسو نیا (@GissouNia) November 16, 2019
The raise of fuel price is an excuse for the people in #Iran to take to the streets. They are showing the fascist government and the world that they are fed up! #IranChangeRegime #IranProtests #IranUprising pic.twitter.com/kRWBh6yykT— Noshin Rad (@noshabelle) November 16, 2019
I invite all activists to call on @Twitter to ban supreme leader of Islamic Republic @khamenei_ir until Internet access is restored. Without it we cannot monitor human rights violations. #TwitterBanKhamenei https://t.co/S86jlOmdZb— Masih Alinejad 🏳️ (@AlinejadMasih) November 17, 2019
More videos from Saturday #iranprotests via @hra_news. In this one from Tehran the commentator's voice trembles with fear as she describes the scene as disastrous. Regime forces smashed and destroyed storefronts with the intention of blaming the damage on "violent" protesters. pic.twitter.com/DNQ9Lzt4ta— Maryam Nayeb Yazdi (@maryamnayebyazd) November 17, 2019
