Opinion of Gino d'Artali: The demand/slogan of protesters: <Give in or give way> and the international political and ngo's pressure may start to bear fruit but as the saying goes 'don't sell the skin of the bear before you shot it'. Don't give way protesters 'till you've toppled the regime of khamenei. And to the maybe pardonned ones be aware that it will have a price: no contacts with the media nor social media.

So here is where the protests continue and I'll continue to inform you about it. That's my pledge.

<<Study Shows A Majority Of Iranians Want A Change In Governance
The findings of a research conducted by an Iranian government body indicate that <a majority of Iranians want a new system of governance in Iran.> Moderate news website Aftab News on February 24 quoted a report from the January issue of <National Security Monitor> magazine which also said: <A small percentage of Iranians believe in harsh treatment of bad-hijab women.> It is not clear who conducted the opinion survey or when, but the interesting aspect of what has appeared in the media is that it was conducted by some kind of government outlet. The research also concluded that the government's interference in social and cultural matters such as women's dress code and lifestyle will increase people's distrust in the government. Meanwhile, like many other assessments about the implications of the Iranian protests during the past months, the research concluded that the death in custody of the young woman Mahsa Amini in mid-September was simply a trigger for the protests and long-standing grievances were the main reason for the unrest that still continues.Based on the findings of the research, people's dissatisfaction and their disappointment with the government has made it necessary to bring about essential reforms to end the protest movement. According to the findings, although a majority of Iranians want a new system of governance, this does not necessarily mean that they simply want a change of the presidential admini-stration. Despair and disillusionment in the Iranian society are not exclusively about the way authorities run the economy or manipulate elections, but they are also about unfair treatment of people in occu-pational environments that hinder their progress at work. The study suggested that the government should follow democratic reforms after mending its broken relationship with the people by paying respect to their wisdom and courage and not attributing the protests to foreign governments or delaying to meet the people's demands as protests recede.>>

<<Anahita Ramezanian sentenced to imprisonment and 40 lashes, lawyer and journalist summoned to court
Anahita Ramezanian, a participant in the 2022 Iran protests, has been sentenced to 7 months of imprisonment and 40 lashes. The verdict was announced by the branch of Yasuj Criminal Court 2, which charged her with <disturbing public order and comfort and encouraging people to hold gatherings.> Anahita Ramezanian was arrested on October 2, 2022, during the rally in the main square of Yasuj city and spent 25 days in detention before being released on bail. In addition, she was also sentenced to one year in prison by Yasuj Criminal Court 2 for participating in the November 2019 protests. Meanwhile, Farzaneh Zilabi, a lawyer and member of the League of Lawyers, has been summoned by the 13th branch of the Ahvaz Revolutionary Court. Farzaneh Zilabi faces accusations of insulting the leadership, publishing falsehoods in cyberspace, propa-ganda activity against the state, assembly, and collusion against security, and membership in hostile groups. Ms. Zilabi is known for representing Haft Tappeh workers and political activists in Khuzestan, as well as some of the detainees of the 2022 Iran upri-sing, social security pensioners in Khuzestan, Khuzestan journalists, and the secretary of the Khuzestan Teachers Union, Pirouz Nami. In addition, Zeinab Rahimi, an environment reporter, was summoned to the Media and Computer Prosecutor's Office on February 22, 2023, on the charge of <slander and publication of lies.> Rahimi used to work with ISNA news agency and was fired in 2020 for publishing content on Twitter. These incidents are part of an ongoing crackdown on dis-sent and independent voices in Iran. As the Iranian regime continues to suppress freedom of expression, the cases of Ramezanian, Zilabi, and Rahimi highlight the challenges facing the country's activists, lawyers, and journalists.>>

<<More Students Poisoned in Girls High School in Borujerd
The state-run Mehr news agency has reported that another 44 students at Ahmadieh girls high school in Borujerd were poisoned on Saturday, February 25, 2023. This latest incident follows similar poisoning cases on February 21 and 22, which saw 20 and 62 students taken to the hospital, respectively, experiencing symptoms of dizziness, weakness, and lethargy. The girls high school in Borujerd had closed on Thursday, February 23, due to the poisoning incidents but resumed classes on Saturday. While the authorities are investigating, no cause has been announced yet. The poisoning of high school girls in Borujerd is part of a chain of similar incidents that have occurred in Qom, Tehran, Isfahan, and Chaharmahal-e Bakhtiari. The Attorney General of the clerical regime, Jafar Montazeri, expressed concern belatedly on February 20 about the possibility of deliberate criminal acts in these educational centers. Since November 30, around 500 high school students, mostly girls, have been poisoned in the ongoing chain of poisoning incidents. Despite this, Iranian authorities have downplayed the significance of the issue, but a member of the parliamentary health committee has questioned why these incidents only happen in girls high schools and not in other public places. The semi-official Asriran website has drawn comparisons between the poisoning of high school girls in Iran and similar incidents in Afghanistan eight years ago. Last week, a group of extremists in Qom distributed threatening leaflets, vowing to spread the poisoning of high school girls to schools across Iran if girls continue to go to school.>>

<<Baluch Protester Dies As A Result Of Police Beating: Amnesty
Amnesty International says Ebrahim Rigi, a 24-year Baluch protester in Iran died as a result of beatings and injuries he sustained in police custody this week. In its statement on Friday, Amnesty also added that <evidence pointing to torture shows once again the Iranian authorities' horrific assault on the right to life.> On Thursday, the police commander in Sistan-Baluchistan province reacted to the murder of Ebrahim Rigi claiming that some people having a dispute with the victim had beaten and taken him to the police station while he was unconscious.Haalvsh website, a local news outlet that monitors rights violations in Iran's Baluchestan region, said in a report that Rigi was arrested on October 13 in con-nection with popular protests in the southeastern Iranian city of Zahedan. It quoted local sources as saying that Rigi, a medical intern, had been released on bail but was then rearrested on the street in Zahedan on February 22 and was taken to the police station. He died an hour later. Reports say the body of Ebrahim Rigi was handed over to his family and relatives on Friday afternoon with bruises and injuries visible and then he was buried in Zahedan.>>

<<Basij Thugs Attack Girls Language School In Iran To Enforce Hijab
A group of Basij militia forces have attacked a girls' language school in Eslamshahr in the vicinity of Tehran arresting several girls on the pretext of not wearing hijab. A video sent to Iran International shows Basij plainclothes agents raid Zabangostar school Wednesday night detaining two teenage girls after sealing off the school.
According to witnesses, Basiji forces were filming the classes during the attack. Reports say citizens, parents and female language lear-ners resisted the attack chanting slogans such as <Death to Basiji>.
Violence against women, especially teenage girls, due to what the regime calls <improper hijab> has been going on for over four deca-des. During the uprising of the Iranian people the violence has inten-sified with the increase of women's civil disobedience against the mandatory hijab. The Islamic Republic, however, confronts such civil disobedience with heavy punishment for what it calls <removing hijab>. Despite regime's efforts to suppress such moves, several famous figures including actresses and female athletes joined the movement against the mandatory hijab and removed their head-scarves. In a statement in January, fifteen prominent Iranian figures, who are usually referred to as <religious intellectuals>, condemned the government policy of compulsory hijab and suppression of women. Results of surveys conducted by Iranian government agen-cies are usually not made public, but according to a survey carried out by the ministry of Islamic guidance in 2015, more than 70 percent of Iranians do not agree with compulsory hijab.>>

<<'In statements' :Instead of Guidance Patrols, the chain of deliberate poisonings target female students in Tehran and other cities
The poisoning of students in girls' schools, which started on November 30 in Qom, affecting 12 schools and soon spread to Chaharmahal Bakhtiari and Tehran, extended this week to schools in Borujerd and Isfahan. On Tuesday evening, 20 students at Ahmadiyeh High School in Borujerd were poisoned and taken to the hospital. The second incident was reported to the emergency depar-tment on Wednesday morning from the same high school, but this time the number of poisoned students was 62, according to the state-run news website Hamshahri on February 23. Two and a half months after the serial poisoning of girl students in Qom and after continuous denials and the publication of false reports, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, the Prosecutor General of the regime, wrote, according to state-run media, to the Qom prosecutor on February 20: <Some news reports point to a worrying trend of a kind of poisoning in some educational centers in Qom pointing to the possibility of intentional criminal actions ....> All the evidence points out that the target is girl students, and the ruling criminal gangs use these heinous actions as a substitute or supplement for the so-called '
'Guidance Patrol'to create terror among people, especially women, and to prevent them from participating in uprisings and social protests. The Public Relations Director of Qom Education said, <About 10 or 11 schools were affected, of which only one was a boy school, and the rest were girl schools.> The extent of the poisoning was such that Qom schools were closed on February 7 and 8 due to protests by families of students. In the past two and a half months, the regime officials denied or lied about these poisonings in various ways.>>
