Iran: Protests Continue for 14 Days in a Row Across 164 Cities
According to the main Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), 300 people have been killed by security forces during the ongoing protests in Iran, and over 15,000 protesters have been arrested.
Protests have continued in many cities despite the clerical regime mobilizing its troops and opening fire on protesters. Women are continuing to lead protests and inspire others to join them. Students have been particularly active in recent anti-regime protests and demonstrations. Many students have been arrested as security forces conduct house-to-house searches to identify and arrest protesters.
On the 14th day of protests in Iran, the uprising spread to 164 cities throughout the country. Tarbiat Modarres University in Tehran, saw students march and hold a rally inviting others to join the nationwide protests and calling for the release of detained students.

The nationwide #Iranprotests have expanded to 164 cities. Over 300 have been slain, and at least 15,000 arrested. The clerical regime is trying in vain to extinguish the flames of people’s fury. Its deadly clampdown only adds to the determination of Iranian youths. pic.twitter.com/txpHZCjq2T
