November 7, marks the 53rd day of anti-regime protests that were triggered by the heinous murder of Mahsa Amini. The 22-year-old woman from the city of Saqqez in Kurdistan Province, western Iran, who traveled to Tehran with her family, was arrested on Tuesday, September 13, at the entry of Haqqani Highway by the regime’s so-called “Guidance Patrol” and transferred to the “Moral Security” agency.
Protesting her arrest, Amini was severely beaten by the security forces in a van and was taken to the capital’s Kasra Hospital due to the severity of her injuries. After initial examinations, doctors declared that Amini had suffered a stroke and was brain dead at the same time. Amini died on Friday, September 16.
Shortly after, protests broke out and have now spread to 216 cities, according to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The regime has killed over 550 people, injured tens of thousands, and imprisoned over 30,000. The MEK has released the names of 368 protesters who were killed. Locals were joined by Lahijan citizens to pay tribute to the late Erfan Zamani, 37, who was killed by, forces in Lahijan on November 3.

Freedom-loving Iranians gathered in Washington, DC, Berlin, London, and Oslo to support anti-regime demonstrations in Iran and to call on the international community to hold the criminal regime accountable.
