Iran votes to execute 15,000 protesters

Newsweek

quote:

After numerous calls for harsh punishments in recent days, the Iranian parliament on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly in favor of the death penalty for protesters.

Iran has been experiencing unprecedented levels of protests and civil unrest since the death of Mahsa Amini on September 16. The 22-year-old Kurdish woman was arrested by the country's "morality police" for supposedly wearing an "improper" form of hijab during a visit to Tehran and allegedly beaten severely while in custody. The beatings are believed to have led to her death from a fatal head injury, but Iranian authorities have denied the accusation.

In the wake of Amini's death, there have been large-scale nationwide protests the likes of which Iran has not seen in decades. Female protesters have notably taken to burning their hijabs and cutting their hair in public in defiance of the rules imposed by Iran's Islamic government, under the leadership of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranian lawmakers have, in recent days, called for strict punishments for the protesters who have been arrested. On Monday, CNN reported that a letter signed by 227 members of the Iranian parliament urged that the protesters be given harsh punishment that "would serve as a good lesson in the shortest possible time."

"Now, the public, even protesters who are not supportive of riots, demand from the judiciary and security institutions to deal with the few people who have caused disturbances in a firm, deterrent, and legal manner," Iranian government spokesman Masoud Setayeshi said, according to Reuters.

On Tuesday, parliament did just that, voting to impose the death penalty on all protesters in custody as a "hard lesson" for all rebels. The majority in favor of the penalty was considerable, 227 out of the 290 total members, matching the number of lawmakers who signed the letter.

It is unclear if and when the executions will be carried out, but the task will potentially be significant. As of Thursday, CNN reported, about 14,000 people had been arrested in connection with the recent protests. On Tuesday, Carnegie Endowment fellow Karim Sadjadpour said the number was nearing 15,000. It is also unclear how many of these arrests will lead to punishable charges.

"In the last 8 weeks Iran's regime has killed over 300 protestors, imprisoned nearly 15,000, and threatened to execute hundreds more, yet Iran's women persist," Sadjadpour wrote in a tweet. "Today female university students removed their forced hejab and chant, 'I am a free woman.'"


Absolutely horrific. Please pray for these brave people, specifically the women. I mean this is just horrible.

I’m just impressed they were democratic enough to take the time to vote on it.

I'm sure Biden will punish Iran dearly for this attack on women!

Seems like 15K protestors plus their friends & families would make a hell of an army.

its a catch 22, at the same time its horrific and terrible, most if not all those condemned to death would kill you in a heartbeat to keep in place the very people and system that wants to execute them.

the women bring their girls to the butchers who mutilate their genitals all in the name of so that men who cant stimulate them, arent shamed by the fact, that they cant get their wives off in bed

Jimmy Carter should’ve dropped a couple of nuclear bombs on their two largest cities when they held our embassy hostage for over a year. We wouldn’t have been dealing with their bull shite for the past decades.

It must be nice to get to fight instead of them throwing your vote away and calling you a domestic terrorist

They’re freer than we are

Didn't Obama say that Americans should be more like them?

Called them "better angels"
