Arrests, Executions and the Iranian Protesters Who Refuse to Give Up
This episode contains descriptions of violence and injury.
In September, protests began in Iran over the death of a young woman, Mahsa Amini, at the hands of the government. The demonstrations have since intensified, as has the government’s response, with thousands arrested and a terrifying campaign of public executions underway.
Today, Iranians who have taken part in the demonstrations tell us — in their own words — why they are willing to brave such severe punishments to help bring about change.
Guest: Cora Engelbrecht, an international reporter for The New York Times.
- The protests in Iran have escalated amid anger over religious rules and a rock-bottom economy.
- A look at the Iranians who have been hanged, and those on death row, as the government tries to crush the monthslong uprising.

and thank you for covering this news because they treated and arrested reporters and even unicef can't work in this country because of this dangerous violation
slamic repoblic killed kids,men and women its really dangerous thats not about hijab that's about our life money or family are in danger please don't forget us.humen right is a joke for this terrorist regime we all see protesters whit eye injury 😭😭 that's not humain.thats scary but we are brave and fighters for dignity and our hometown
In western countries if somebody hurts an authority's agent, they kill that person without question and immediately on the spot. but in Iran one psychopath stab an agent and the court verdicts sentence to die, western countries interfere in our decision.we know there is tyranny and step by step everything will be OK. go fuck your self with your ridiculous human-american rights .
I saw a comment who said" access to right news from inside of Iran"😂 How?when they arrest journalists who talk about the reality inside Iran like the reporter of #mahsaamini news in prison
it is the time to topple this satanic regime in Iran once for all. if this doesn't happen, people in europe should expect dark days by doing terrorist mission in their soil By IRGC terrorist organization as they are assisting Putin in invading Ukrane right now!. So, as an iranian I warn European countries to open their eyes and help Iranian people to get rid of this F....ing regime. you can't imagine how many people have died through this past 40 yeras by IRGC. I know one thing for sure, we will kick this regime to the dustbin of history whether you(european countries) help us or not.
It's important for the world to know about the violence going on in Iran and what the people are demanding: The removal of the present system and the establishment of democracy. I say that as an Iranian believing that many developed countries are also responsible for many of the problems that Iranians and many nations are facing today; however, it doesn't mean that dictatorships have any right to exist; if the world has screwed up in thousand ways when dealing with dictatorships and authoritarian regimes, these countries have done the same too, if not worse. So yeah, I want to invite you to keep paying attention and listening to the people inside Iran, a range of them, from the ones supporting the regime to the ones wanting it to end. Many might say it's a good country, and many might say it's a total mess. I am in the latter, and I want the world to know why and take responsibility for its own part in the mess and contribute to leading this regime to finally getting the hell out through listening to the very same people of this country, and not a limited number of them, but a considerable one.
you should access to right news of inside of Iran...not pay attention to a reporter who doesn't live in Iran... because most of the press in all around the world want to say lie about Iran. my country Iran is the best and powerful country... please don't lie about Iran. #powerful_iran #right_news #fake_news
