Protests have continued in Iran calling for the overturning the current government, even in the face of mass arrest.

Public trials of arrested protestors have recently begun, recently seeing the first death sentence ordered and others sentenced to ten to fifteen years of jail time. 

The protests stemmed from the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22 year old woman who died in police custody - her passing sparked nationwide dissent calling for women's liberation.
