The 19th day of protests in Iran continued with high school and university students holding rallies in various cities.
High school students chanted “Death to the dictator” while marching in the capital’s streets and other cities.
In Karaj, they chanted, “I will kill whoever killed my sister!” referring to Mahsa Amini, the young woman who died in the custody of the morality police on September 16. She went into a coma for three days after guidance patrols hit her head with successive blows of batons. Her skull fractured, and she suffered a brain hemorrhage.
High school students in Shiraz also held a rally and chanted, “Khamenei will be overthrown this year!” They tore the images of Khamenei and Khomeini, the mullahs’ supreme leaders, from their textbooks and stomped on them.
Young girls in Saqqez, Mahsa Amini’s hometown, and Marivan, Iranian Kurdistan, also marched in the streets and chanted anti-regime slogans.
High school students in Saqqez and Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan, also joined their students by going on strike, demanding the release of their fellow imprisoned teachers.
