On September 16, 2022, a new wave of anti-regime protests broke out in Iran. Now in its second month, the continuity of the unrest has far outlasted all previous uprisings since 2017. Very different from past uprisings, the protests are spearheaded by women and youth, and supported by all the Iranian population. Sparked by the regime’s inhuman treatment of women evident in the murder of 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian Mahsa Amini, the protests rapidly transformed into a universal call for regime change and a democratic revolution.

Goals – The message of the protesters to the world is impressively unified all over Iran and is focused on the overthrow of the regime. The most universal slogan is “Death to the dictator, death to Khamenei.” Other dominant slogans all target the heart of the regime, seeking to unseat the Ayatollahs, while rejecting the past single-party rule of the Shah, as in the chant “Death to the oppressor, be it the Shah or the Leader [Khamenei].”
