<<British-Iranian journalists in UK warned of death threats from Iran.
British-Iranian journalists based in the UK have been warned by police of imminent and credible death threats from Iran, prompting a call from the House of Commons for the UK to proscribe Iran's Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist group. Volant Media, the London-based broadcaster of Iran International TV, said two of its jour-nalists had been notified by the Metropolitan police that the threats <represent an imminent, credible and significant risk to their lives and those of their families>. It said other staff members had been warned by the Met of separate threats. The broadcaster said in a statement: <These lethal threats to British citizens on British soil come after several weeks of warnings from the IRGC [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] and Iranian government about the work of a free and uncensored Farsi-language media working in London.>
The channel continues to cover anti-government protests in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of the morality police. The Conservative backbencher Bob Blackman raised the issue in the Commons on Tuesday as he urged the government to proscribe the IRGC as a terrorist organisation. Blackman said: <Thousands of Iranians have been arrested for just demonstrating their support for people who have been murdered. Now I've been supplied with a long list of people who have been sentenced to death for just protesting. And even worse now, British-Iranian reporters who are now sited in the UK have been issued with credible threats by the police that the IRGC threatens their lives. What more does the IRGC have to do before we proscribe them in their entirety?> David Rutley, a Foreign Office minister, replied: <We've been clear about our concerns with the IRGC's continued desta-bilising activity throughout the region and the UK maintains a range of sanctions that work to constrain that destabilising activity. <The list of proscribed organisations is kept under constant review but we do not routinely comment on whether an organisation is or is not under consideration for proscription.> A Metropolitan police spokesperson said: <We do not comment on matters of protective security in relation to any specific individuals. We would advise anyone with concerns over their safety to contact police so that officers can assess the situation and offer any safety and security advice as and where necessary.> >>

<<Political prisoner Leila Hosseinzadeh: Resistance has no limit.
News Center- Women keep taking to the streets across Iran by chanting, <Jin, Jiyan, Azadi (English: Women, Life, Freedom)> while women prisoners resist in prisons. Political prisoner Leila Hosseinzadeh sent a letter reading, <Resistance has no limit> from prison and announced that they, as women prisoners, resist the Hijab law despite difficult conditions in prison. Sending the letter through her family, she said that women prisoners do not wear hijab in the prison to protest the Hijab law.
<The resistance of women will bring revolution>
In her letter, Leila Hosseinzadeh wrote, <For the resistance, there is no difference between the streets and the prisons. We stand against persecution everywhere. Resistance has no limit. All women in the prison feel the uprising outside every second. We believe that the resistance of women will bring the revolution with it. Now, I am behind bars. Whenever I go to bed and wake up, I hear the noise of the iron bars. But I keep struggling.>
She is denied access to her medicines
Leila Hosseinzadeh's family shared her letter on social media platforms and reported that the health condition of Leila Hosseinzadeh is deteriorating. Underlining that Leila Hosseinzadeh has not received any treatment both inside and outside of the prison, her family wrote that she is denied access to her medicines. Suffering from Crohn's disease, Leila Hosseinzadeh, a student activist and student of anthropology at Tehran University, was arrested on December 7, 2021, while visiting Shiraz, the capital of Fars Province in southern Iran.

<<Iran's younger generation at the heart of the protest movement
Hadis Najafi, 22. Sarina Esmailzadeh, 16. Nika Shahkarami, 16. These young people have become martyrs of the anti-regime protests in Iran. Their names have become hashtags and rallying cries for the thousands taking to the streets. They are among the more than 300 people who have been killed in the massive demonstrations, according to Oslo-based NGO Iran Human Rights.
Of those killed in Iran's widespread protests, at least 41 are under the age of 18. These children and teenagers belong to Iran's younger generation, which has become central to the movement. While people of all ages are participating in the protests - which erupted over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after she was arrested by Iran's morality police - young people are particularly incensed. We spoke to an Iranian schoolteacher to learn more about what is motivating girls and boys to join the demonstrations. On condition of anonymity, she explained to us that her students are ready to fight and die for the cause.>>

<<Iranian high schoolers join anti-regime protests as they return to school.
The explosive protests that have spread around Iran have made their way into universities and even high schools following the start of the school year in October. Videos shared online show crowds of students protesting, many of them girls and young women. They have been filmed chanting slogans, marching through the streets and taking off their headscarves in school courtyards - acts of defiance that are often met with harsh retaliation by security forces.
Chanting <Death to the dictator!> and <Woman! Life! Freedom!>, young women and girls have been at the forefront of protests around Iran since September 16. With the start of the Iranian school year on October 2, the unrest has moved from the streets to the schoolyard.
At a high school in a city near Tehran, an official from the Ministry of Education came to talk to students about the importance of wearing the Islamic headscarf on October 3. But a group of young girls yelled at him <Shame on you!>, threw objects at him and then chased him out of the school. In a similar scene, a representative from the paramilitary Basij forces, a branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, came to speak to a group of high school girls in a city in central Iran. The students responded by taking off their headscarves and waving them in the air while chanting <Get lost, Basiji!> >>

<<Iran: Fresh protests erupt after death of Kurdish student
23 hours ago23 hours ago
Demonstrators in the northwestern city of Marivan are angered by the reported killing of 35-year-old Nasrin Ghaderi. Iranian lawmakers, meanwhile, urged severe punishment for <rioters.> Fresh demonstrations occurred in the northwestern Iranian city of Marivan on Sunday, following the death of Kurdish student Nasrin Ghaderi.
The latest flare of protests comes as anti-government demon-strations in Iran continued for a seventh week in one of the biggest shows of dissent in years.
What do we know so far?
Nasrin Ghaderi died on Saturday after falling into a coma. She was reportedly attacked by security forces in an anti-government demonstration in Tehran and suffered severe blows to her head.
Regime-critical news outlet Iran International reported that 35-year-old Ghaderi was studying for a doctorate in philosophy in the capital.
She originally came from Marivan, which lies in Iran's Kurdistan province. Omid Memarian, the director of communications at the Washington DC nonprofit Democracy for the Arab World Now (DAWN), posted a video on Twitter showing demonstrators gathered on the streets of Marivan. Norway-based Kurdish rights group Hengaw said police shot at protesters in the city, wounding dozens. Hengaw reported that Ghaderi was buried without a memorial service, as Iranian authorities believed the event would lead to unrest.>>

<<Iranians defy crackdown with fresh protests, as president dismisses US vow to 'free Iran'
Iranian students protested and shopkeepers went on strike despite a widening crackdown, according to reports on social media, as demonstrations that flared over Mahsa Amini's death continued for a 50th day. Saturday's protests came as President Ebrahim Raisi said Iran's cities were <safe and sound> after earlier dismissing a pledge from the US president, Joe Biden, to <free Iran>. The Islamic Republic has been gripped by protests that erupted when Amini died in custody after her arrest for an alleged breach of the country's dress code for women.As the working week got under way, security forces adopted new measures to halt protests at universities in Tehran, searching students and forcing them to remove face masks, activists said. But demonstrators were heard chanting <I am a free woman, you are the pervert> at Islamic Azad University of Mashhad, in north-eastern Iran, in a video published by BBC Persian. <A student dies, but doesn't accept humiliation,> sang students at Gilan University in the northern city of Rasht, in footage posted online by an activist. In the north-western city of Qazvin, dozens chanted similar slogans at a mourning ceremony 40 days after the death of demonstrator Javad Heydari - a custom that has fuelled further protest flashpoints. The Norway-based Hengaw rights group said people were observing a <widespread strik> in Amini's home town of Saqez, in Kurdistan province, where shops were shuttered.
A video aired later by Manoto, a television channel based abroad and banned in Iran, appeared to show students locked inside Islamic Azad University in north Tehran.
<I am a free woman, you are the pervert>
<A student dies, but doesn't accept humiliation,> sang students at Gilan University in the northern city of Rasht, in footage posted online by an activist.>>

<<New Iran protests erupt in universities, Kurdish region.
The protests, triggered in mid-September by the death of Mahsa Amini after she was arrested for allegedly breaching strict dress rules for women, have evolved into the biggest challenge for the clerical leadership since the 1979 revolution. Unlike demonstrations in November 2019, they have been nationwide, spread across social classes, universities, the streets and even schools, showing no sign of letting up even as the death toll ticks towards 200, according to one rights group. Another rights group, Norway-based Hengaw, said security forces opened fire on Sunday at a protest in Marivan, a town in Kurdistan province, wounding 35 people.
It was not immediately possible to verify the toll. The latest protest was sparked by the death in Tehran of a Kurdish student from Marivan, Nasrin Ghadri, who according to Hengaw died on Saturday after being beaten over the head by police. Iranian authorities have not yet commented on the cause of her death. Hengaw said she was buried at dawn without a funeral ceremony on the insistence of the authorities who feared the event could become a protest flashpoint.
Authorities subsequently sent reinforcements to the area, it added.
Kurdish-populated regions have been the crucible of protests since the death of Amini, herself a Kurd from the town of Saqez in Kurdistan province.>>
