Kinder, gentler repression

The Iran Press News reports on attacks and mass arrests at a demonstration for women’s rights in Tehran Monday.

Many of the regime’s guards and agents were dressed in plain-clothes and passed themselves off as demonstrators until they began to attack and beat the protestors. They had batons, tear and pepper gases as well as all kinds of other chemical agents that make people sick and disables their breathing and vision which was continuously launched into the crowd. The regime’s new tactic in their so-called attempt at a “kinder, gentler” way of treating protestors is to send out armed, green-clad female thugs and have them beat women demonstrators. The green outfits (as seen in photos) with nun-like hijabs connect in one piece to the rest of the shapeless shroud.
