Iranian Protesters Turn Out In Memory Of "Bloody Friday"
The Mahsa Amini protests are now about quite a bit more that the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody.
Now there is an additional cause for protest: the September 30 clash between government forces and protesters that is being called “Bloody Friday”.
Amnesty International said security forces unlawfully killed at least 66 people, including children, in the incident after firing live ammunition, metal pellets and teargas at protesters in Zahedan, capital of flashpoint Sistan-Baluchistan province.
Today protesters turned out to commemorate what some could describe as a massacre of protesters, in defiance of repeated government edicts to stop.
The Iranian government appears to be losing control of the situation. Any crackdown on the protesters will result in more deaths and more casualties, and thus more reason for Iranians to take to the streets to protest the brutality of the Islamic Republic.
The protests appear to be approaching critical mass, if indeed they have not already surpassed it.
Which means change could be coming to the Islamic Republic, and soon.
