UNDERCOVER VIDEO: Judiciary Overtaken in Iran’s 4th Largest City
Iran is in turmoil, and the world will get to watch.
As I reported on my radio show, we have insiders in Iran who are getting information out, despite Iran’s attempt to shut down the internet.
As Tehran Times reported,
On Sunday, media reported that Tehran had temporarily restricted access to social media apps Instagram and Telegram, used by activists to exchange messages about the rallies.
“The rumors about the permanent closure of the social networks do not correspond to the reality. It seems that they seek to create social discontent and pessimism,” the minister wrote on his Twitter account.
In this video, the judiciary in Iran’s 4th largest city taken over by protesters:
MUST WATCH "We confiscated this baton which the police used to beat the ppl. And this is the Karaj Judiciary which is up in flames". In the background: "Don't be afraid, we're all together".

Though the unrest in Iran received little media coverage in America, the implications are far-reaching,
As reported by the BBC,
Anti-government chanting and burning cars were reported as night fell in the capital, Tehran, with other demonstrations across the country.
President Hassan Rouhani said protests were an “opportunity, not a threat” but vowed to crack down on “lawbreakers”.
The US meanwhile stepped up support for the protesters’ “bold resistance”.
The protests began last Thursday in the city of Mashhad, initially against price rises and corruption but now with wider anti-government sentiment.
The Iranian Resistance, a group of expatriates works diligently to keep information flowing out of Iran. Only two days ago, I received this information from the group.
Martyrdom of two protesters in the city of Doroud by the shooting of the Revolutionary Guards
This evening, on the third day of nationwide uprising of the Iranian people, the criminal Revolutionary Guards opened fire on the demonstration of brave people of Doroud and killed at aleast two protesters. This inhuman crime occurred while the suppressive forces failed to disperse protesters by tear gas and beating them. The details and the names of the martyrs will be announced later.
Without a doubt, this unjust bloodletting will double the anger of the people against the clerical regime, further inflame the fire of uprising, and accelerates its overthrow.
The Iranian resistance calls on the United Nations Security Council, the European Union, the United States and all human rights organizations to condemn this great crime and to take efficient international measures to confront the suppression of the uprising of the Iranian people.

The number of dead is now reported at 14.
Who knows what the casualties will be, as the Iranians are known to have killed tens of thousands of people they considered troublemakers.
The BBC article continues,
What has the US said?
President Donald Trump stepped his war of words with Iran’s leaders on Monday, posting a tweet saying the “great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food and freedom”.
Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!

He added in capital letters “TIME FOR CHANGE!”
Vice-President Mike Pence took an even stronger tone.
He tweeted: “The bold and growing resistance of the Iranian people today gives hope and faith to all who struggle for freedom and against tyranny. We must not and we will not let them down.”
He spoke of the “shameful mistake” of not supporting previous Iranian protesters.
The Green Movement in 2009 saw millions of protesters dispute the election victory of incumbent president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The protests were brutally suppressed, with at least 30 people killed and thousands arrested.
The latest US approach has infuriated Iran.
Mr Rouhani described the US president as an “enemy of the Iranian nation from the top of his head to his very toes”.
I believe President Trump emboldened the Iranian people. And now that the president has chimed in, Iran should know they are under the microscope. That doesn’t bode well for them.
