Pressure from the mullah regime and executions are having an effect. The demonstrations dropped dramatically. However, the management crisis has not yet been resolved.
Istanbul. Protests in Iran are losing strength and numbers. Four months after the wave of protests began, many protesters are backing away; the number of protest rallies has dropped dramatically since the fall. Representatives of the regime have already declared that the threat to the Islamic Republic has been averted. The regime’s pressure on the protest movement with police violence, mass arrests and executions is having an effect, experts say. However, the demonstrations cannot be completely suppressed, as demonstrated on Friday.
Thousands of reports and videos from activists in Iran in recent months have painted a picture of a country in turmoil. Demonstrations took to the streets of many cities, with university students and oil industry workers on strike. The regime fought back, using the police and the Basij militia, Revolutionary Guard thugs, against the demonstrators.
