This is what bravery looks like. Iranian women protesting for their human rights!
Iran’s president has vowed to take action against protesters after more than a week of anti-government demonstrations.
President Ebrahim Raisi pledged to “deal decisively” with the protests, which have now spread to most of Iran’s 31 provinces.
Officials say some 35 people have been killed since protests broke out over the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody.
Clashes continue in several cities.
Ms Amini had been detained for allegedly breaking headscarf rules. Officers reportedly beat her head with a baton and banged her head against one of their vehicles. The police have said there is no evidence of any mistreatment and that she suffered “sudden heart failure”.
And while Mr Raisi says her death will be investigated, his Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi has insisted that Ms Amini was not beaten.
On Saturday people joined protests in several cities across the world including Rome, Athens and Stockholm
Why Nancy Pelosi went to Taiwan only the Gods know. Very provocative and lame brained move. She infuriated China and put U.S. – Chinese relations in peril.
She claims she did it to show support for a fragile democracy facing an autocrat, totalitarian and belligerent giant next door.
But in making that political maneuvre she actually put the world in peril. China has started extremely provocative military actions near Taiwan, including intrusions into Taiwanese airspace. One miscalculation or mistake by a pilot and the real bullets could start flying. Nancy, you are a fool!
Tall, small, big, short, it makes no difference. Unless of course you are a middle linebacker or a jockey. Despite the trivial nature of this post, there are some surprising revelations here. Never realized Snooky was 4’8″, and Seth Green was 5’4″.
There is a bit of redundancy here, it was necessary to include as many people as possible.
Canada’s current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is 6’2″.
