Just saw @Zygotic posting about this in… A thread that I can’t find (now that I think about it it was probably the police thread), and thought in it might be worth making a thread about it, rather than adding it to the non-UK politics thread.
It is quite fun, but also worrying watching the videos, it just makes me concerned that there’ll be violent oppression in the very near future.
Nice one for starting a thread - definitely seems big
Would love for this to lead somewhere but inevitably I don’t think it will. If this was the era of Rouhani, who, as a moderate reformist, was pushing policies to the left, then maybe this might lead somewhere, but not under Raisi. No way. Even by Middle Eastern standards the Iranian regime is incredibly oppressive - noticed they’ve been slowing down/turning off the internet already - and I fear it’s only a matter of time before the Revolutionary Guard are deployed.
Still, they have my full support.
Do not read the Atlantic’s dreadful take on it
