SOFREP’s ongoing coverage on Iranian protest continues to show the devastating abuse of power by local authorities, Iranian police and their Revolutionary Guard.
For weeks now, protesters have not stopped filling the streets with a blatant call to change of power in their government. Since 2018, Iranian women have been voicing out their concerns about the “morality police’s” brutality by removing their hijab. Women who would protest like this are sent to jail, would experience severe sentencing (for up to 10 years), and reportedly receive 74 lashes from the police for “openly committing a sinful act.”
