It's been 53 days now since the protests started against the Iranian regime. At least 304 people have died. It all began with the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in the custody of the infamous morality police of the country.
The agitations do not seem to stopping anytime soon as the death of one protester causes in eruption of more protests. For instance, death of Nasrin Ghaderi, a PhD candidate in philosophy who died on Saturday after being beaten by security forces with batons during protests in Tehran, lead to more people joining the protests.

What's happening now? Protests are erupting in all the cities of Iran, from the capital Tehran to small cities like Karaj. People have kept the protests going with whatever they can, be it chanting slogans from their roofs and windows, long honks from their cars and even singing the songs that have been spreading on social media since the beginning of the protests.

How is the Iranian regime responding? The Iranian regime has not taken these protests lightly, and the security forces have done a serious crackdowns on the protesters. They have killed at least 300 protesters.
Former government spokesman Ali Rabiei, who has been a long-time member of the Islamic Republic's intelligence community, has warned that there might be "bloody confrontations".
Rabiei wrote in a commentary in the Iranian reformist Etemad newspaper that some officials and political groups have marginalized "moderates" to facilitate Iran's destruction by those who keep creating fault lines in the Iranian society.
