They show no sign of subsiding protests and events in universities and schools in Iran following the death of Mahsa Aminithe 22-year-old died three days after being arrested by the moral police for not wearing the hijab correctly, the Islamic veil. A new video is making the rounds of social media in which young students “provoke” a militiaman of the feared Iranian paramilitary force Basij who was performing at a street rally. The young women wave their veils in the air and shout at him: “Go away, Basiji.” The video – according to the Bbc -, may have been shot yesterday at Shiraz. Basij militias helped security to crack down on protests sparked by Amini’s death. Other social media footage shows a man shouting “death to the dictator” as another group of girls walk through traffic in the northwestern city of Sanandaj and an elderly woman applauding as female students without a veil sing “freedom, freedom, freedom”.
