I can't find anything on MN about the protests in Iran. Do people actually realise what is happening and how the Mullahs are suppressing womens rights and that many protesters have been killed in the last few days? Where are the pussy hats and the marches for solidarity against these theocrats and in support of Iranian women and their rights!? So depressing.
It's awful. I know very little about Iran but I suspect the state is strong enough to stand up to these protests. I also think it's bad news for Nazanin Radcliffe as the Iranian government are likely to take a more hardline stance.
I think most people are aware of what is happening in Iran. The point is that there is absolutely nothing you or I or anyone else can do to change it. If you think there is some action that would bring about change, please share it with us?
IT has been in the media but I think people are generally very confused about womens rights and islam etc.
On Mathew Wright he was talking about a womans a chess delegation was going to the country and didn't want to wear a veil, Wrights was saying that was wrong and they should respect the countries rules. Its confusing.
But there has been stuff in the media. One hopes they can do something but who knows. Pictures of Iran in the 60's to now...
