‘No more fear’, protests in Iran for fourth week

Another video they shared showed students from a school in Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan province, entering the school with the same slogan.

Multiple videos shared on Twitter showed a man dead in the driver’s seat of a car, while other footage showed gunshots.

A police official told Iran’s state news agency IRNA that security guards did not fire live shots, and that the man who died was killed by “counter-revolutionaries”.

Iran’s semi-official news agencies reported small-scale protests in Tehran.

ISNA news agency reported that ‘limited scale’ protests were seen in as many as 10 areas of the capital.

Without mentioning the strike, shopkeepers in many markets have closed their shops fearing losses due to the unrest, they said.

Despite heavy restrictions placed on the Internet to prevent protesters from congregating and images of their protests being disseminated, protesters are turning to new tactics to get their message across.
