What will be discussed?

The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was brutally killed by the morality police forces in the middle of September 2022, has prompted unprecedented reactions in the post- revolutionary Iran. Protests of the upset public, which were initially limited to the Kurdish province where Mahsa Amini was living, spread soon to practically the whole country. Despite the increased death toll of the young protesters because of intensified use of force by the oppressive paramilitary militia and regular police forces, the Iranian regime has not yet succeeded to bring an end to what seems to be the start of a general uprising. The question is whether the ongoing protests will lead to a categorical change in the Iranian politics, or the Iranian regime will manage to crackdown the protests in the end.
