The world is watching Iranians young and old confront the Islamic regime amid fears of a worsening crackdown. It's day 18 of unprecedented protests that erupted after the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. @JomanaCNN spoke to one of the student protesters.
Thank you, @BeckyCNN , for covering Shervin Hajipour’s important story and the global solidarity for Iranians. Behind every line of this song, there is pain and suffering of living under the Islamic Republic. #MahsaAmini #مهسا_امینی #IranProtests2022

Young Iranians “don’t want this system any more,” says Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis. “They want democracy.” “They want a new government… This generation is very, very different from us,” she tells me, especially young men's solidarity with women’s rights inside Iran.
#MahsaAmini is an Iranian woman who was beaten to death last week in a “re-education center” for not wearing her hijab correctly. Her death lead to thousands of Iranians taking to the streets, demanding an end to violence and discrimination against women.
Just remember, the Iranians never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!
