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.

Active Measures & Useful Idiots

Propaganda is neither magic nor omnipotent nor able to change all facts. The most important element in its success or failure is not within the machine, it's outside, in front of it, unaware of its role.

Execution Machine & Intel-Justice

Spontaneous, widespread #اعدام_نکنید should not stop, it increases the price the brutal theocratic regime has to pay for its cruelty, it should continue until all political prisoners are released unconditionally.

Who Said Do Not Execute & Who Said Execute

what we have seen from yesterday until today, in cyberspace, in response to the widespread protests by the government apparatus, draws a pattern of repression that is not limited to cyberspace. The regime has repeatedly used the same tactics to suppress street protests, and will no doubt use the same known methods in the upcoming uprisings.
