Iran, Aug 26, 2018 - Despite heavy presence of security forces, the people of Marivan, Kurdistan, gathered for the funeral of six people who had died in yesterday’s incidents and staged demonstrations against the government.
On Saturday, bombings by the Revolutionary Guards resulted in fires in Marivan forests. Also, the explosion of an undetonated projectile resulted in the death of six environmental activists. Subsequently, the people of Marivan protested to the killing of their fellow citizens.
On Sunday morning, people from Sanandaj and other cities of Kurdistan province headed for Marivan to attend the funeral of the six victims.
To prevent news of the potential protests from spreading, the Iranian regime has obstructed access to internet in the area. But the measure hasn’t prevented activists from posting pictures and video of the ceremony and the protests online.
