    Surprised not to have seen more about this. Will she become Iran's George Floyd? I was reminded of the shooting death of Neda Soltan in 2009:

    Iranians risking lives to protest: 'They are essentially giving up their lives to raise their voice'


    Could it be the end of the regime? Could it endanger Rashka's supply of Iranian drones?

    Perhaps there is someone out there who is monitoring the Iranian situation. Hopefully they will chime in soon.

    I heard that Elon Musk opened starlink in Iran. If that's true then I hope they now have Internet access. That's the only way that they will survive the night in Iran's crackdown. As for what's next, they need weapons. They don't have any defense yet.

    Iran protests against Mullah-regime enter tenth day as death toll grows | DW News


    The protests seem to be growing despite killings and arrests.

    not sure how much help opening up starlink is going to be unless people in Iran already have receivers.

    Oh, you're right. They could be primitive barbarians. Without an internet enabled device like a smartphone they can't message each other and warn each other about crackdowns. It looks like they won't survive the night after all.

    You think a normal smartphone can just connect to starlink?

    Does everyone in Iran have satellite phones?

    Probably not due to sanctions.

    I'm not sure this backlash will be enough to contain the movement:

    Protests raged across Iran and authorities more than 75 people had been killed during unrest over the death of a young woman in police custody.
    https://www.reuters.com/world/middl...testers-attacks-least-22-arrested-2022-09-20/
    The death last week of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who was arrested by morality police for "unsuitable attire" unleashed a flood of simmering anger.
    I know the Ayatullas will not fall ... but some day the brave Pershian civilians will win.
    Inshallahhh

    A barrier of fear has been broken in Iran. The regime may be at a point of no return
    By Jomana Karadsheh and Tamara Qiblawi, CNN
    Updated 9:17 AM EDT, Wed October 5, 2022

    ...

    Tehran has been convulsing with demonstrations since the death in mid-September of Mahsa (also known as Zhina) Amini, the 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman who died after being detained by the country’s morality police for how she was dressed.

    Protests crop up sporadically in various parts of the capital throughout each day. At night, a chant that has become a staple of the protests — “death to the dictator” — sounds from the rooftops of buildings. It’s a reference to Khamenei, who was once considered beyond reproach because of his elevated clerical status.

    ‘This is not the end’
    Anti-regime demonstrations have also penetrated the Islamic Republic’s power bases, including the Shia holy cities of Mashhad and Qom. Ethnic minorities — notably Kurds in the country’s north and northwest, and Baloch people in the southeast — have also staged protests, enduring what appear to be some of the most brutal crackdowns, with scores reportedly killed.

    ... https://www.cnn.com/2022/10/05/middleeast/iran-protests-regime-intl/index.html

    Is the end nigh for the regime?
