Iran
« on: September 26, 2022, 04:54:08 am »
So tiktok is full of Iranians, it looks like they're having a revolution, but if you believe tiktok Occupy and BLM were revolutions.  Anyone know what's going on?  I feel like the media is being fairly quiet about it because nobody I have mentioned it to face to face had heard anything.

They're protesting heavily against restrictions on women's rights, specifically the bullshit about modest clothing, though there's the usual underlying reasons (spiralling inflation as a result of increased fuel prices and disruption from the Ukraine conflict). It's not a revolution, but it is significant unrest.

Yeah. The women are out there burning hijabs and cutting their hair in the streets. They're fed up.
