PROTESTS IN IRAN
Iran soccer player sentenced to death by hanging
Before we get stuck into the World Cup semi-finals, some absolutely shocking news came out of Iran late on Monday.
“Following the death in Iran at the hands of the morality police of a 22-year-old Kurdish girl, Mahsa Amin, for violating the country’s strict dress code, a wave of protests have erupted across the country, with the state repressing those calling for more freedom.
The Iranian regime is taking a hard line over the protests and is desperate to punish those who have campaigned for women’s rights and freedom in the nation. The most recent of these is 26-year-old former soccer player, Amir Nasr-Azadani, who has been sentenced to be hanged.”
I’m at a loss for words.
