Magnús Þorkell Bernharðsson, prófessor í sögu Mið-Austurlanda við Williams-háskóla í Bandaríkjunum, var gestur Morgunvaktarinnar í stað hefðbundins Heimsglugga á fimmtudegi. Magnús er svartsýnn á breytingar í Íran. Víðtæk mótmæli hafa verið í landinu frá því um miðjan september í fyrra. Kveikja þeirra var dauði ungrar konu, Mahsa Amini, í haldi siðgæðislögreglu landsins. Hún var handtekin fyrir meint brot á reglum um höfuðslæðu; fyrir að hafa ekki hulið hár sitt nægilega vel. Talið er að Amini hafi verið barin til bana í haldi lögreglunnar. Magnús segir engin merki um að klerkastjórnin ætli að slaka á harðstjórn sinni, þvert á móti færist harðneskjan í vöxt og mótmælendur hafi verið teknir af lífi opinberlega. Litlar vonir séu um breytingar.

Las protestas contra el velo islámico obligatorio continúan en Irán tres meses después de que estallasen. A lo largo de la semana pasada se convocó una huelga de tres días que remataron con una gran manifestación por las calles de Teherán. El Gobierno ya no sabe qué hacer para detener esto, pero entre sus planes no se encuentra suprimir el hiyab. A cambio ofrecen cambios en el modo en el que se implementan las normas de vestimenta. Se ha hablado, por ejemplo, de disolver la policía de la moralidad y de emplear procedimientos más persuasivos para que las iraníes cumplan con la legislación referente al velo. El problema que tiene el Gobierno de Ebrahim Raisi es que las demandas de los manifestantes van ya mucho más lejos del asunto particular del hiyab. Es cierto que todo esto empezó en septiembre tras la muerte en dependencias policiales de Mahsa Amini, una joven de 22 años que fue detenida tras ser sorprendida circulando sin el velo islámico, pero también lo es que el malestar provocado por la muerte de Amini ha terminado sirviendo de catalizador a otro tipo de demandas que permanecían aletargadas dentro de la sociedad iraní en espera de la ocasión propicia. Esa ocasión parece haber llegado y el régimen es muy consciente de la amenaza. Eso vendría a explicar como la represión se ha intensificado en el último mes. Aparte de los muertos y heridos en el curso de las manifestaciones, la justicia ya ha sentenciado a muerte a dos personas por haber participado en las protestas. La última este mismo lunes, cuando un tribunal de la ciudad de Mashdad, en el noreste del país, ordenó que se ahorcase en público a un joven por haber matado a dos policías a mediados de noviembre durante una algarada callejera. La semana pasada fue ejecutado otro joven por agredir con un machete en Teherán a un miembro de los Basij, la milicia dependiente de los guardianes de la revolución, que desde el principio se está empleando a fondo para reprimir a los manifestantes. Ambas ejecuciones han ocasionado que más gente salga a la calle, esta vez para denunciarlas. Se trata de concentraciones silenciosas con velas que se organizan en las redes sociales. Están prohibidas, pero se celebran igualmente para desesperación de las autoridades. Hasta la fecha se estima que han muerto más de 400 personas y hay al menos 15.000 detenidos que atestan las comisarías y las cárceles. Pero el Gobierno no quiere dar su brazo a torcer. El hiyab es uno de los pilares sobre los que descansa la república islámica prácticamente desde su fundación hace cuarenta años. Creen que no pueden hacer una concesión semejante sin poner en peligro todo lo demás. Por de pronto lo que sí se puede apreciar por las calles de las ciudades iraníes es que la policía de la moral está mucho menos presente que antes. Han repintado los vehículos en los que patrullan para evitar ser identificados y procuran ser discretos en los controles rutinarios. Esto ha llevado a muchas mujeres, especialmente las jóvenes, a quitarse el velo en público. Hasta hace unos meses eso hubiese supuesto arresto e interrogatorio. Hoy ya son menos comunes las detenciones porque la policía se refrena y porque los problemas que tienen las fuerzas del orden son mucho más graves. La revuelta del hiyab se ha transformado en una contrarrevolución cuyas consecuencias podrían ser en el medio plazo determinantes para el país.

Iran is being rocked by its most significant protests since the Green Movement of 2009. Since September, hundreds of thousands of young and mostly female demonstrators have filled the streets of nearly every major city from Tehran to Tabriz, many discarding their headscarves at great personal risk to protest draconian societal rules and restrictions. The backlash from security forces has been brutal, though (except in the Kurdish region) the government has yet to send in the Revolutionary Guard. Iranian-American journalist and activist Masih Alinejad joins Ian Bremmer on the GZERO World podcast to discuss. Where will these protests lead, and what are the geopolitical implications for the region, and for the West? Alinejad shares her views on the unprecedented unity among the Iranian protesters, her personal experience being targeted by the Iranian government even after moving to the United States, and why the Iranian men's World Cup team does not deserve sympathy.

Since September thousands of ordinary Iranian citizens have risked their lives -- and hundreds have lost their lives -- protesting the ayatollahs' rule after the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini. The 22-year-old woman had been arrested by the clerical regimes' morality police for not wearing her hijab the way the clerics have prescribed. The street protests are said to be the biggest challenge for the regime since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, but it remains unclear if the demonstrators can compel their government to embrace fundamental change. In this episode, historian John Ghazvinian explains why the Islamic Republic's power has endured despite widespread domestic discontent and international isolation.

In September, 22-year old Mahsa Amini died after being detained by Iran's morality police for allegedly violating the Islamic Republic's dress code. Protests quickly erupted, and over the past two months they have grown into calls for regime change. How did Iran, a country that once sat at the forefront of Muslim women's advancement, end up with such conservative gender laws? After decades of repression, why did Amini's death lead to such a broad movement for reform? And how does the issue of Iranian women's human rights constitute a policy issue for the United States?

In mid-September of this year, a young Iranian woman named Mahsa Amini died under suspicious circumstances after her arrest by the morality police for improperly covering her hair. Her death set off a huge wave of protests across Iran – the biggest in many years. The protesters' rallying cry was “Women, Life, Freedom,” and women have indeed taken a prominent role in the demonstrations that followed Amini's death. This week on International Horizons, John Torpey talks with Ali Ansari about the protests in Iran, their ideological basis, and the interplay between state and religion in the desires of the population. Moreover, Ansari discusses the reasons why Iran supports Russia in the war on Ukraine, and how this support has boosted the attention on the protests, converting them into a transnational phenomenon. Ansari also compares the health of the Iranian and the Chinese regimes in the middle of the protests and concludes that the dire social and economic situation of the Iranian people has made them fearless and defiant of the status quo, whereas China's CCP has more leverage.

During a vocal civil demonstration in late September, a group of Iranian-American women sought to raise awareness of the fate of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year old Iranian woman that was beaten into a coma, and later death, by the Iranian government's "Morality Police."  The ironically named enforcement group took exception to how Amini was wearing a head scarf...with tragic results. Mandana Mojaverian, a Claremont resident, student and activist, took a few minutes out to talk to Claremont Speaks and explain what exactly happened, how things really are in Iran, what should be done about it, where NOT to find the truth and who should - and should not - get involved.  She also recounts her journey to Claremont and some of the unexpected cultural differences she encountered along the way.Mandana's group's protest in September, along with many, many across the US and the world, recently appear to have been quite effective.  The Wall Street Journal reported on December 4, 2022, that Iran's Attorney General, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, stated that Iran had "disbanded its so-called morality police and is considering altering the requirement that women cover their heads in public."  Mandana cautioned against too readily accepting that said by US news sources, but this seems to be generally corroborated by other sources. To Mandana and all those who voiced their opposition to Iran's actions, this shows that the combination of free speech - and the willingness to "say something" - can contribute to real change.You are invited and encouraged to return to Claremont Speaks any time.Wall Street Journal: Iran Disbands Morality Police, Considers Changing Hijab Laws, Official SaysFeedback, questions, comments, constructive criticism are all welcomed and encouraged.Send to claremontspeaks@gmail.com with Feedback in the subject line, or go to the appropriate page on Claremont Speaks' website - https://www.claremontspeaks.comClaremont Speaks is a Paradise Road Media production.

“Every so often over the past quarter-century, analysts have predicted that Iran was on the cusp of major change. They always turned out to be wrong. Now, unrest is engulfing the country yet again.” So writes Jason Rezeian in a recent piece for the Washington Post about the threats the Iranian government is facing, what people are saying - and why this time could be different. For the past three months, Iran has been rocked by protests prompted by the death of a young woman - Mahsa Amini - while in the custody of Iran's “morality police” for the alleged crime of wearing an improper hijab. Images of Amini - bruised and on life support - spread on social media, and her name has become the latest rallying cry in what have been largely women-powered protests against the government's repression and misogyny.It has been estimated by human rights organisations that - over the course of the protests - hundreds have died, thousands have been injured, and yet thousands more detained - upwards of 18,000 people.Rezaian, the global opinions writer for the Washington Post, served as the Post's bureau chief in Tehran from 2012 to mid 2015, before he was arrested and convicted on bogus espionage charges and held in an Iranian prison for a year and half before being released in early 2016 as a part of a prisoner exchange with the United States.

On this edition of Parallax Views, Dr. Assal Rad, research director for NIAC (National Iranian-American Council) returns to the program to discuss the wave of "Death to the Dictator" protests that have swept through Iran in recent months. The protest began after the death of 22 year old Mahsa Amini. Amini was arrested for wearing her hijab in a manner deemed the Guidance Patrol (or what's been called morality police) deemed improper. According to eyewitnesses Amini was beaten by the police. Protests began after Amini's death and the Islamic Republic has sought to crackdown on the dissent. Dr. Rad discusses the nature of the protests, how they started, the involvement of women and youths in the protests, and much, much more. Additionally, we delve into the themes and ideas of Dr. Rad's new book The State of Resistance: Politics, Culture, and Identity in Modern Iran. Said book investigates the history of Iranian national identity and nationalist sentiments from the Pahlavi dynasty to the Islamic Republic and the bottom-up Iranian people's resistance to having a narrowly-defined identity imposed upon them by either Iranian authorities or outside forces. Among the topics covered: - The Pahlavi dynasty's focus on pre-Islamic Persian culture as a national identity and the Islamic Republic's focus on Shi'ite Islam as a national identity - Iran, oil, and the West - The cinema and music of Iran and what it says about Iranian national identity - Nationalism, the problems with nationalism, and liberation struggles - The Iranian diaspora - Human rights abuses in Iran - The possibility of a broader, more inclusive, even cosmopolitan national identity for Iran - The concept of vatan, a love of the homeland - How those of us in the U.S. and other countries miss nuances of Iranian culture and politics that we otherwise would recognize in our own culture - The Iranian protests and BLM (Black Lives Matter) - Understanding Iran's elections, their significance, and the dual powers in Iran (the elected officials on one hand and the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei - And much, much more!

This week my colleague at FOX5 DC, Iranian-American news anchor Shirin Rajaee joins me for an open conversation of what it's been like watching the unrest fold in Iran and around the globe. Shirin who was born Iran shares how the country we see today was not the Iran her parents and so many before her once knew.  We also discuss why the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who died while in the custody of Iran's "morality police" was a tipping point for the younger generation. Almost two months after Amini's death the outrage and protests continue to grow.  At the heart of the protests are women, young women and girls. Those who've grown up in Iran or have followed the politics of the country say it's unlike anything they have ever seen.  As the Islamic Republic faces one of the biggest shows of dissent in recent history it's a fight that the Iranian people cannot win alone. We explore the three words that are resonating across the globe: Women, Life, Freedom and why human rights in Iran is a win for democracy worldwide. We discuss how this time is different and what Americans can do to show support.  Watch this interview and more.

In today's episode, we will be talking to Poupeh Missaghi and Berfîn Marx. Poupeh Missaghi is an assistant professor in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Denver and the author of Trans(re)lating House One. Berfîn Marx is a freelance journalist who is currently a student at the University of Denver. The ongoing revolution happening in Iran has been noticeably absent within western media. On September 13th, 2022, Mahsa Amini or Jina Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman, was arrested by morality police in Tehran for allegedly violating Iran's strict rules requiring women to cover their hair with a hijab or headscarf. There were reports that officers beat her head with a baton. The police said she suffered a heart attack. The first protests took place after Amini's funeral in the western city of Saqqez, when women ripped off their headscarves in solidarity. Since then, the protests have swelled, with demands for more freedoms and the end to the dictatorship. In this dialogue, we will discuss the ongoing revolution in Iran, storytelling, and international solidarity.

Ken welcomes back Pastor Suzie Lind from Brentwood, Tennessee for her second appearance on the podcast. Suzie is a teaching pastor at Journey Church where she and her co-pastors are asking big questions about politics, race, religious freedom, and the unwelcome trend toward Christian nationalism. When she appeared with Mike Erre on his podcast, Voxology, she told the story of her family's connection to Iran. Suzie was born in Tehran under the rule of the Pahlavi dynasty under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi who had worked to "westernize" and modernize the nation. Just before the revolution that overturned his reign in 1979 and reversed his policies under the rigid rule of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, her family fled the country for London and then the United States, leaving a large extended family. Just weeks ago, Mahsa Amini was arrested, beaten, and killed by "morality police" on the streets of Tehran for failure to dress properly. Her story has sparked enormous rage and protests all over the country resulting in arrests and confinement in "re-education camps." For Pastor Suzie, it's personal. It's family. It has triggered introspection and activism as she rethinks her own identity as a Jesus follower with family roots in this Islamic nation. The dangers of morality police and "re-education camps" hit home here in our own country. Ken and Suzie unpack the events and the implications for us today.

Über 40 Tage ist es her, dass die junge Iranerin Mahsa Amini gestorben ist, nachdem sie von der iranischen Sittenpolizei verhaftet und allem Anschein nach misshandelt wurde. Der Grund dafür: Sie hätte ihr Kopftuch nicht korrekt getragen, wie die iranischen Behörden sagen. Die Proteste gegen diesen Vorfall – und gegen die strenge Auslegung des Islam im Iran – halten bis heute an und haben sich auf Städte in der ganzen Welt ausgeweitet.

We also talked about how the regime is seeking to portray the protest movement as being instigated by foreign powers, and finally we talked about how the left should respond to those who seek to weaponise the cause of women's rights in Iran to justify Islamophobic politics or to advance geopolitical objectives.

In a shocking report out today MPs say too many women who've survived domestic abuse are ending up in appalling accommodation operated by rogue landlords who exploit housing benefit loopholes to cash in on a ‘gold rush' of taxpayers' money. Some women and their children find themselves housed in mixed-sex provision, or even alongside their perpetrators. The current rules mean anyone can set up what is called Exempt Accommodation if they offer care, support, or supervision that is ‘more than minimal'. One provider left a loaf of bread and some jam to achieve that standard. Others say fitting CCTV is enough to qualify. The All Party Parliamentary Select Committee on Levelling Up Housing and Communities make a number of recommendations aimed at stopping unscrupulous operators getting enhanced housing benefit without providing the wraparound support and staff they're meant to offer survivors of domestic abuse. Krupa Padhy talks to the Chair of the Committee Clive Betts Labour MP and Becky Rogerson, CEO of Wearside Women in Need. In 1691, a journalist called John Dunton was having an affair and realised there was no one he could ask for advice about it without revealing his identity. Realising his situation couldn't be unique, he invited readers of his newspaper to submit their problems. Today agony aunt columns are the mainstay of the back pages of our newspapers and magazines. But why do we still seek comfort from the written advice of strangers? Krupa Padhy is joined by best-selling author and Sunday Times Style agony aunt Dolly Alderton, and author of ‘Never Kiss A Man in a Canoe,' Tanith Carey. Yesterday marked 40 days since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who died in police custody after being arrested for allegedly wearing her hijab “improperly”. Thousands of mourners gathered near Amini's grave in her hometown of Saqqez where Iranian police reportedly fired live rounds and tear gas at the crowds. Protests have taken place across the country since Mahsa's death on 16th September and women have been at the forefront of the movement, removing their headscarves and cutting their hair in public in solidarity. Faranak Amidi, the BBC's Near East women affairs reporter, joins Krupa. On Woman's Hour we talk about girls a lot, how we raise them, keeping them safe, their mental and physical health but we don't often talk to them. For an occasional series called Girl's World, Ena Miller went to talk to India and Alice at their school about their lives, the things they think about, chat about and worry about. She took along her teenage diary to jog her memory about the secret world of the teenage girl. When Una Marson became the BBC's first black radio producer and presenter in the 1940s, she brought Caribbean voices and culture to a global audience. Krupa speaks to actor Seroca Davis on playing Una in BBC2's documentary-drama ‘Una Marson, Our Lost Caribbean Voice'.

Protests began erupting across Iran in late September following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested in Tehran by morality police. Amini, who was visiting Tehran with her family, was arrested for not wearing her headscarf, and died in a hospital three days later. Her brother reports she was taken to a “re-education center” for not abiding by the state's hijab rules and was beaten there. State police say Amini died from a heart attack, but her family insists she had no heart issues and was beaten to death by the police. Massive demonstrations began at Amini's funeral, and they continue to sweep across the country now five weeks later. Human rights monitors have reported hundreds dead, including children. As of a few days ago, the count is up to at least 233 Iranians dead, with 32 below the age of 18.To take a deeper look at what's happening right now in Iran, I invited my friend Laurie Meberg on to today's episode. Laurie lives in France and she has about 10 years of experience serving the Iranian church in different cities and capacities around the world.

Concern is growing about Elnaz Rekabi, the 33-year-old Iranian athlete who competed in South Korea on Sunday without a mandatory hijab. On social media today, Rekabi said there was a problem climbing with the covering, apologized, and said she was returning to Iran. Now rights groups based abroad are raising the alarm about what might happen to her once she's home. It comes amid ongoing protests by Iranian women and male allies, sparked by the death of police custody of Mahsa Amini. Amini was an Iranian Kurd, and that community has borne the brunt of the regime's crackdown. Now some are fleeing across the border to Iraqi Kurdistan and joining armed opposition groups.

This episode is dedicated to clarification of a podcast between Joe Rogan and Max Lugavere, two popular influencers that have a large audience. They discussed Alzheimer's disease and brain health in general and some of the information that was shared was not accurate, which can be really harmful. This is by no means an attack on Rogan or Lugavere. After listening to the conversation, we think Lugavere may not be quite familiar with the data regarding brain health, and it would be important to set the record straight and share the evidence with people and let them decide what's best for them. Having seen thousands of patients with dementia, whether it's Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal lobe dementia, Lewy Body Dementia and others, we feel it's our responsibility to share evidence based data as opposed to feel-good, self confirming anecdotes.

Anna Foster met members of Mahsa's family who live across the border in Iraqi Kurdistan. In India, a new extremist Hindu movement - made up mostly of young men- is growing. They call themselves “trads”, short for traditionalists, and share many of the hallmarks of America's alt-right movement and mainly operate online.

A crush at an Indonesian football stadium in Malang West Java which left 131 people dead is being counted as one of the worst stadium disasters in sporting history.

The UK's frosty relationship with the EU has become an almost permanent backdrop since the Brexit referendum.

Period. There's just no question.” Author and historian Assal Rad joins Useful Idiots to discuss the Iranian protests over the case of Mahsa Amini, a young woman who died after being detained by Iran's “Morality Police” for not adequately covering her hair. “She shouldn't have been detained in the first place,” Rad says. “The fact that there is this law, this dress code, that doesn't allow women a basic form of free expression is the problem.” Amini's death has sparked protests across Iran and the west, with politicians and celebrities weighing in from around the world. “This is a human rights issue,” Rad says. “But so were the sanctions on Iran during the pandemic. It's problematic when you only cite human rights organizations and international law and the UN when it serves your purpose.” Today, crippling sanctions on Iran are starving its people, and women are affected the most. But Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber aren't posting on Instagram about it. The West chooses when to call out human rights abuses against women and when to ignore them. “And that's why outside powers having any kind of intervention is so problematic. They're not doing it in the interest of those civilians, they're doing it in their own national interest,” Rad says. “This is why listening to and supporting voices in Iran is so important.” Assad Rad's new book is “The State of Resistance Politics, Culture, and Identity in Modern Iran.” Plus, subscribe to hear the full interview on why Biden won't reenter the Iran nuclear deal, the historic suppression of the Iranian left stemming from the Cold War, and how sanctions are crushing Iranian workers.

I never thought I would make this episode but here I am. My parents fled from the Islamic Revolution in Iran and it has created a great deal of trauma in my lineage. In this episode, I share the story of a beautiful country that was overtaken by tyrannical patriarchal dictatorship. I discuss why this moment is SO significant, especially as a woman, and why this is the time we need to be EMBODYING the divine feminine we preach about and showing up for our sisters being killed for basic human rights. Please share this episode to raise awareness. We need as many international eyes on this as possible. Until all women are free, no woman is free.

Mahsa Amini, 22, traveled from her hometown in the province of Kurdistan to the Iranian capital, Tehran, this month. Emerging from the subway, she was arrested for failing to cover her hair modestly enough. Three days later, she was dead.The anger over Ms. Amini's death has prompted days of rage, exhilaration and street battles across Iran, with women stripping off their head scarves — and even burning them — in the most significant outpouring of dissent against the ruling system in more than a decade.Guest: Farnaz Fassihi, a reporter for The New York Times.Background reading: The protests have been striking for the way they have cut across ethnic and social class divides, but there is one group that has risen up with particular fury.Beyond the anger over Ms. Amini's death lies a range of grievances: a collapsing economy, brazen corruption, suffocating repression, and social restrictions handed down by a handful of elderly clerics.For more information on today's episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.

Sam is back, and he and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. Then they are joined by Trita Parsi, Executive Vice President at the Quincy Institute, to discuss the recent widespread demonstrations in Iran. First, Emma and Sam walk through updates on the upcoming Fed-induced recession, the Secret Service's secret dealings in the wake of January 6th, and the mass walkouts among Virginia High Schools in opposition to Youngkin's anti-trans legislation, before diving deeper into the contents of the Continuing Resolution, whether Manchin's permitting reform will end up on the cutting room floor, and parse through the details of AG Ken Paxton's great escape from being subpoenaed. Trita Parsi then joins as he situates the current uprising in Iran, beginning with the story of Mahsa Amini, who died in the custody of the regime's “Morality Police,” why her death struck such a nerve, and touching on the greater economic disaster, general repression, and wide-scale corruption that pushed the population to this point, before walking through the various groups that make up the protests, exploring why the role of young people and the aid of the middle class has been central to the developments of these last few weeks. Next, they discuss where this departs from other large-scale protests in Iran that we've seen, between 1979 and 2009, parsing through the absence of a real leadership structure today alongside a regime very unlikely to flee. After a discussion of the failure of the regime to garner the faith of their populace, focusing solely on fear and control, and why the state wants to make the murder of Amini about her Kurdish identity, they wrap up the interview by looking at the differences between how Obama's Administration reacted in 2009 and how Biden's has today, and establishing whether or not we could see this effect the future of a nuclear deal. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma talk with Sergeant Marx of Atlanta on the suspicious rerelease of Elijah McClain's autopsy report, why it tries to pin the fault on the paramedics, and what the role of ketamine actually could've played. Bernie is confronted with the GOP's priorities (as listed by Rick Scott), starting with saluting the flag, of course, and the crew watches Fox News hosts rally behind the election of Italian Fascist Giorgia Meloni, with Tucker, Trey Gowdy, and Ben Domenech bringing up points such as “she won an election, that makes her a moderate.” Zach from Illinois talks MAGA-Communism and why fascists are courting kids with leftist tendencies, Stephen Crowder continues his demented tirades on the side of rape culture, and Don Bolduc discusses the difference between his views today, and his views when he declared without a doubt that the 2020 election was stolen, plus, your calls and IMs!

This story makes modern feminism's portrayal of Western women as victims of oppression look quite silly and serves as a sobering example of what REAL oppression of women looks like.
