That should definitely help end the protests and reduce the chances of the government being overthrown. /s

Singing songs and holding signs isn't going to do anything.

Am I the only one who feels that in this day and age, the oppressive governments in this world are way more advanced than the oppressed?

Watching Hong Kong, Russia, China, and Iran over the the last few years.. the tools their governments have to control and punish the people while masking the truth is shockingly effective. Facial recognition, blocking words completely from their own versions of internet/social media/traditional media, turning on and off the internet like.. with the flip of a switch, apps on phones, tracking of all data and communication, GPS and mobile phone towers, advanced anti-protest weapons/tools/tactics. You cannot even have centralized leadership anymore. They are disappeared before they can even get in front of the lectern.

I fear that as time goes on not only will oppressive governments find ways to stomp on the throat of dissent but will kill it before it can take root through social media, government controlled media, and unrelenting exposure to misinformation.

Headline should read: “Iran plans public trial for 1000 heroes in Tehran”

OMG… “Another Iranian teen girl beaten to death by police today for tearing Khomeini's photo”

Honestly this story and the protests are heartbreaking. These women and men are so incredibly brave and strong and they truly deserve so much better. I hope these sacrifices bring change soon!

This will only make the protests bigger and wider.

Not necessarily. If they slaughter 1,000 people it may scare the population into submission. It's happened before

This isn't the 1800s anymore. These idiots keep making mistake after mistake.

I'm hoping this protest turns into a full on revolution

Same. Those before and after pictures of Iran that float around from time to time are heartbreaking.

So they plan 1,000 public executions at the hands of religious zealots.

Killing hundreds of teen-aged girls publicly -- what could be more inspirational.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 68%. (I'm a bot)

> DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Iranian authorities announced on Monday they will hold public trials for 1,000 people in the capital, Tehran, over the protests that have convulsed the country.

> Iran's state-run IRNA news agency quoted judicial officials as saying that a thousand people who had a central role in the protests would be brought to trial in Tehran alone over their "Subversive actions," including assaulting security guards, setting fire to public property and other accusations.

> ADVERTISEMENT. "Those who intend to confront and subvert the regime are dependent on foreigners and will be punished according to legal standards," said Iran's judiciary chief, Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei, indicating that some protesters would be charged with collaborating with foreign governments.
