In Condemnation of killing students in #Iran
Join the Coordinating Council of Iranian Teachers’ Trade Associations (CCITTA), in a twitterstorm Thursday November 10, 2022, 21:00 to 23:00 Iran time (18:30 to 20:30 CET; 12:30 to 14:30 ET), using the following hashtags in both English and Farsi
The murder of Jina (Mahsa) Amini in Sep 16, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman visiting Tehran from Saqqez, ignited an uprising in Kurdistan which briskly went beyond the Kurdish communities and spread across Iran, forming the most radical feminist movement in recent history of the country.
The movement touched the schools and students fundamentally. Highschool students joined the uprising from the very begging, and schoolgirls have been at the forefront of the schools’ protests both within the educational spaces and in the streets. The security forces responded to the peaceful protests brutally and mercilessly. At least 300 are confirmed dead since the beginning of the uprising, out of which 50 are under 18 years old. 50 children are killed in less than two months, and new murders are reported each single week. Like all other previous experiences, the security forces’ treatment of protesters from non-Persian groups have been the bloodiest; some 58 percent of the whole victims are Baluchis and Kurds. And speaking from the children’s numbers, 62.5 percent of the casualties are from Baluchistan and Kurdistan. But unfortunately, the horrific news of the murder of the students, children and teenagers has not been reflected properly by the international and English media. Through this twitter storm, the Coordinating Council of the Iranian Teachers’ Trade Association (CCITTA) aims to publicize the case of the murder of more than 50 students, children and teenagers in the past two months in Iran.
