Iran’s dictatorship is reacting to a new social media campaign calling on women in Iran to submit photos of themselves displaying stealthy acts of freedom.
Mohabat News – Thousands of women in Iran have shared photos of themselves without the mandatory headscarf (I.e. hijab). The popular action has so far attracted more than 300 thousand users on Facebook and thousands of Twitter users tweeting under the hashtag #MyStealthyFreedom. The Facebook page was created by Masih Alinejad, an Iranian journalist living in exile in London, England.
Attempting to spread fear among Iranian civil society, *Tasnim, a state-run news agency in Iran controlled and operated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC), interviewed Hadi Sharifi, a “media activist” (I.e. Regime propaganda activist), who attempted to send the message to campaign supporters: stop, or else.
