Internet Disruption Because of #اعدام_نکنید

Coinciding with the official announcement of the death sentence for three protesters of the bloody uprising of November 2019 by Gholamhossein Esmaili, the Judiciary Spokesman, a wave of protests erupted on Twitter and other social media platforms.

Gholamhossein Esmaili announced in a press conference today, Tuesday, July 14, 2020, that the death sentences of Amir Hossein Moradi, Saeed Tamjidi, and Mohammad Rajabi have been upheld.
Following the news, a wave of protests erupted on Twitter with hashtag, #اعدام_نکنید, meaning “Do not execute.” Hundreds of thousands of users expressed their protest and anger over the issuance of this sentence by the execution machine of the Islamic Republic.

The hashtag quickly became a global trend on Twitter and many celebrities, political and human rights activists joined in.

Millions of tweets were posted by users that filled the Twitter space in a matter of hours in protest of this inhumane ruling.

However, as it was expected, and as the Iranian people have experienced many times, the regime, which does not tolerate protests, becomes frightened at such times and disrupts the flow of information on the Internet. Netblocks confirmed that Iran’s Internet network was significantly disrupted from 9:30 p.m local time.

Despite the Internet disruption, more than 2.5 million tweets have been posted by users opposing the November protesters’ death sentence, by the time of this writing.

The regime showed its fear of street protests resurgence by this action; Protests that all observers and sociologists had warned of their impending explosion.
