and: My mother (1931-1997) always said to me <Mi figlio, non esistono notizie <vecchie> perche puoi imparare qualcosa da qualsiasi notizia.> Translated: <My son, there is no such thing as so called 'old' news because you can learn something from any news.>

freedom) has just started and will only then end when khamenei and his
puppets i.e. the morality police and the basijis give way or get lost!!
So Chapter 4 is where the protests continue and I'll continue to inform you about it. That's my pledge.

<<Iran protests: 'This comes down to patriarchy and power'
When nine-year-old Naza Alakija left Iran with her mother, they were stopped by morality police because she was not wearing a hijab. The experience made her aware of her body at a young age. As an adult, Alakija founded the SAGE foundation, an NGO dedicated to educa-tion, women's empowerment and the environment. She joined us for Perspective to discuss the challenge of reconciling religion and femi-nism, as well as the global outcry over attacks on women's rights from Iran to Afghanistan to the United States.>>

<<'We are all Mahsa': Iranians in Doha for World Cup voice anger at regime
Hundreds of Iranian fans arrived at Doha's Khalifah stadium on Monday with a secret: they wanted their national team to lose. <In my heart, I don't want them to win,> said Mokhtar, 59, wincing visibly at the admission. The propaganda value of defeating Iran's former colonial master, England, would simply be too irresistible for the country's embattled rulers, he said. <The players would go home and meet the president, they would be celebrated by the mullahs,> he said. The Iranian colours painted on his face were starting to crack in the afternoon sun. <I still hope they score a lot of goals,> he said. <But then lose.> For many Iranians, everything now is about the popular uprising that has been roiling their country for the past two months and left hundreds of protesters dead, including dozens of children. The country's World Cup campaign in Qatar is not immune. The squad flew to Doha last week under a cloud of popular criticism after meeting the Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, with some players pictured bowing to the hardliner. <Many say this isn't our national team,> said Ali, 42 from Qom. His Iranian national team shirt was splattered with an illustration of several bullet holes, with a bloody handprint on the back. <I think they were forced [to meet the president]. If the players don't sing the national anthem today, maybe people will forgive them.> >>

<<Protesters gather in London ahead of World Cup.
Anti Iranian and Qatari government protests have taken place in London ahead of the World Cup.
A group of 22 Iranian women played football in Westminster and said they wanted to highlight the country's <gender apartheid>.
The women then joined a protest organised by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell outside the Qatari embassy.
Mr Tatchell called on people to <boycott the World Cup>. The Iranian women paid tribute to Mahsa Amini, who died in custody in Iran after she was detained for allegedly failing to follow the country's Islamic dress code. Lawyer Leila Mansouri said: <We are here today in London to raise awareness about the atrocities going on just a couple of hundred miles away from Qatar, ahead of the football match between Iran and England. Women can not attend men's matches in Iran. There is a gender apartheid in Iran, as many people already know.> She called on England's football team to raise awareness of the situation during their match against Iran on Monday.> >>
