Below is my translation of numerous reports from Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran in regards to today’s protests in Tehran.
According to news reports from Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran the protests in Tehran started early this morning and people were marching towards Hafte Tir Square and other major intersections in Tehran.
Security forces were present in large numbers in most major intersections trying to prevent people from protesting. The presence of security forces was especially heavy in Hafte Tir Square.
In a second news report Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran state that security forces, Basij, Pasdaran etc.. have attacked the protestors in Hafte Tir Square and are beating men, women, children and elderly protestors mercilessly. Despite the attacks by security forces people are continuing their protests and shouting “death to dictator.” Hundreds have been wounded and hundreds more have been arrested and taken to unknown locations.
According to another report protestors have taken over the north part of Hafte Tir Square while the security forces have taken over the south side. There are protests in all major areas of Tehran including Enghelab Square, Vali Asr Square and Taleghani.
Furthermore as of 4:00pm Tehran time thousands of people were protesting in Motaheri Street. People were shouting slogans such as “Khamenei is a murderer, his government is void, death to dictator, and Obama, either with them or with us!!”
Protestors were attacked by security forces, many were beaten while many more were arrested. As of 5:30pm protests were continuing in Tehran.
