Clashes mark the anniversary of Iran’s uprising in various cities across the country
Iran saw widespread confrontations between women and youths in Hamedan, on the one hand, and the regime’s brutal IRGC and security forces on the other, with chants of “death to Khamenei” and “death to the Republic of Executions” on Sunday, September 17, 2023.
The clashes mark the anniversary of the murder of Mahsa Amini and the beginning of the nationwide uprising last year on these very days.
Young women and youths in Hamedan chanted, “We will kill whoever killed my sister,” in the face of security forces. The protests took place in District 13 of the city.
In a shocking scene, dozens of security forces surrounded a lone young woman in the street to arrest her.
Video footage from the city shows one-on-one clashes between youths and security forces as well as the sound of shooting.
Yesterday, September 16, 2023, business and shop owners in dozens of cities in Iranian Kurdistan closed their shops and markets and went on strike to mark the anniversary of the Iran uprising and the murder of Mahsa Amini.
In Tehran, security forces blocked the streets leading to Enghelab Square. Helicopters were hovering over the city, and security forces shot people with pellet guns.
In Mashhad, anti-riot vehicles were stationed along the streets in huge numbers. Basij mercenaries and plainclothes agents were roaming the streets on motorcycles to create an atmosphere of terror. Nevertheless, many women and youths took to the streets and chanted anti-regime slogans.
Heavy clashes were also reported from Kermanshah, between young protesters and security forces which started at dusk and continued through the night, forcing the repressive forces to retreat.
