According to Parham Ghobadi of the BBC Persian service, the price of these demonstrations is heavy for Iranians.

At least 500 people, including 69 children, were killed during the protests, according to Iran’s Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA).

While two demonstrators were executed, 26 more are awaiting execution.

Despite the long-term protests held in 2017, 2018 and 2019, it is stated that the latest actions are different as they involve people from all segments of society and women lead.

Some Iranian famous names were either detained or had to go into exile because they supported the protests.

One of these names is Taraneh Alidoosti, one of the famous Iranian actors.

Alidoosti is being held in Tehran’s infamous Evin prison.

The famous actress shared a photo with her head uncovered and condemned the execution of a young protester.

Asghar Farhadi, who directed Alidoosti in the movie Seller, also supported the famous actor.

Pegah Ahangarani, one of the famous actors who had to leave the country, told the BBC Persian service that both sides in the country were radicalized and that Iran could not return to the period before Mahsa Amini’s death.

Actress Hamid Farrokhnezhad, who moved to the USA at the beginning of this month, likened Iran ‘s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to dictators such as Franco, Stalin and Mussolini.

Another feature that distinguishes these actions from the previous ones was the use of molotov cocktails by the demonstrators.
