*I have declined payout on this post as the author does not want to be named. I am sharing this unedited information from a friend in Iran who wants their truth to be heard, yet is also afraid of being arrested, so will remain anonymous.
"What is really happening in Iran, everyone see this from their perspective, but reality is what people see it from the streets of Iran!!
Iran had a revolution, people did that revolution to have political freedoms! and as Khomeini the old leader said to people : I came to make Oil free for people! electric power will be free!! and everything will be for people!!
many years passed from that time!! the wealth in Iran is only in hands of a small percent of population! the wealth is in hands of Government of Iran, some Leaders! they tell their people we spend these moneys for poor countries as Imam Khomeini also wanted to do this too! they do it!
but when people ask for the free oil! free electricity! jobs! their lost money which banks stole money of people!! and after people went to street and said : leaders! president!! please give us our money back!! they didn't answered them!!
and after all the pressures that we (Iranian) had and all the sanctions that USA + Israel did against us!! even our Government did Sanctions against people!!
there are workers who didn't payed about 22 months!! there are poor people in many cities like Baloochestan and Kurdestan and many other cities!! in Kurdestan people have no job so they pass the borders to take things over the borders and sell or take things inside to sell inside, to make some money for their family, some of them dying in these ways. some are dying while they pass the cold waters and passing the mountains!! to bring a smile on their children's face to give them some foods!!
and what are our government do? they just show us lies in our TV like what the World TV shows to the people of the world!! lies are everywhere!! never believe in any politicians!!
before the first revolution people had freedom to wear anything they like to wear, but now they force people to wear more, cover their body! because it's government rule!! I myself born as a muslim child but I never accept government which works with Religion!! these things must be apart!! religion must be a thing for someone in their room, not in public!! it doesn't have to be a force!!
after the First revolution of Iran women voice became Haram!! means they can't sing!! if they sing alone and try to send out their mp3 music or video they will take them to prison!! they will punish them!!
Alchohol became Haram! they will slash anyone who drunk alchohol!!
they will slash anyone who were with a girl who is not his wife! they will take them to police stations to teach them to become good( good in government's thought!! )
Their stupid rules became much hard that they even force forgeiners who travel to Iran should wear Hijab on their hair and wear their bodies!! this is insane!! this is not what Iranian want!
Anyone who talk against government and specially saying anything against or bad to the Leader they will arrest him as a political prisoner, there is a man who spent 40 years in prison because he talked against leader!
And in the new years they took some girls and men who also said bad words to leader and they are still in prison, only because our leader do crimes and never listen to people! and he just love to make everyone silent!
Rock music is Haram!! Rap is Haram!! (Haram is an Islamic rule which means its not allowed and the person who did that work will be punished) but only in new years they accept it because some people who started working for government and sing what government love to hear! so they let these musics be allowed!!
most of Iranian artists and musicians and singers left Iran after The 1978 revolution! because those who took control after that revolution stopped musicians and singers and actors, and also they changed the programs of TV!!
from my childhood till now! TV is filled with Islamic thoughts and programs and mullah (a Muslim learned in Islamic theology and sacred law.)
those women who work in Iran TV must wear full Hijab even harder than what people wear in streets!
it's only some years that women could fight back and wear what they like to wear but still they can't take their hairs out!! if they take their head hairs out! cops will take them so fast!!
with all these forces!! USA Sanctions came!! and all the presidents of USA always said lies!! they said we have problem with Iran's government but they never had!! they always did bad to Iran's people!! what will happen to a powerful government? nothing!! only the people in that country will become more and more poor!! things become high price!! our money price will go downer and downer (Rial and Toman) : 1 dollar = 45000 Rial!! which our country factor the Rial and now we must say Toman : 1 dollar = 4500 Toman!
our Government pay much money to those who have great jobs in government and their salary is high, but for the lower jobs, like a teacher or even an army worker with high degree the salary is so low!! or any other job which is in the low part!
Babak Morteza Zanjani became billionaire with the oil business and the works he did for our government and now they take him and its been years and years they just take him to judgement but they do nothing to him!! they stole much money!! and nobody do anything with him!!
even if they do anything to him it wont solve the criminal system!! as they also did executed another one of thieves ...
but I say they kill small ones but they dont kill or take or anything they want to do to the boss of them!! big leaders! who has much money in their hands!!
after all the things I said up there I want to talk about the things which are happening in these days in Iran! yes people did Protest against our criminal government!! people did it for freedom! for sanctions! for poverty for no jobs and much educated people!! for much professors who leave Iran to have a good job in other countries!! for our civilization and culture which our government destroyed must of it!!
people went to streets and scream against them!! people said down with dictator!! down with thieves!! Lairs!! and people said we will take back Iran!! and people died with bullets which police forces shoot at them!! the numbers that they said in videos was 22! I know it must be more than this! there was many protests in most of Iran's cities!! big cities!! in Mashhad they arressted more than 1000 people, a soldier from there told me that prisons is full and there is no space!!
and at the end they slowed down the internet so people can connect each other with an app called Telegram so nobody can hear anything from the other people ...
and in the next days they forced students and teachers and those who works in the government jobs, to go out and walk in streets and say down with those who protested days before!!
what are they doing!! people of the world!! what are they doing to us? and they just smile back at us!! is this what they said? is this freedom?
and you know what they do in the prisons? they give the young innocent girls and boys in hands of wolves to rape them!! to do many shameful things to them which I dont wanna name those acts here!!! :(((((
they beat people in streets and bring many armmed soldiers and cops to streets and closed all the places to stop any protests and arrested as much as they could and right now they smile in our TV and they say : it was an action from outside of Iran, it wasn't people!!
but I only believe that this must be fixed from inside!! when Trump started talking he ruined people's works!! he put a bad name on protesters!! and now government can call them people's who payed from USA!! with one stupid word from Trump! I wish he never talked!! then people could continue!! we could change it!! we could make this place free!! and I know what politicians of the world wants!! they want to choose another dictator on us!! they just wants someone to be their puppets and this is why I hate of them!!
I wrote all of these to show you the reality and truth of my country!!
we love all the people of the world! we are not bad ones!! we are friendly people!! our problem is our government like everywhere!! but I believe that our government is more criminal than all when I see what they did in all of these years!!
I also have seen poverty in USA and you can see that Trump don't give a fuck about those cities which are in poverty and he just look around other countries and sit to see when he can attack like Iraq and ... and today he talks about human rights in Iran!
evils are everywhere!
this is videos of people who were in streets and protesting against government and leader in Iran
Thanks for reading about our life in Iran
