Iranian Regime Executes 23 Year Old Protester
The Iranian regime has executed Mohsen Shekari, a 23-year-old who was arrested during the latest round of protests against the regime’s harsh behavior against its citizens.
After a 3-week trial, Shekari was sentenced to death on Nov 20 for the crime of blocking Tehran’s Sattarkhan road and striking a police officer. He was killed this morning.
According to the Guardian, Shekari was allegedly persuaded to go to the protest with a friend who bribed him to hit a police officer. He was sentenced without his lawyer present while his family waited outside the jail for information as he was being executed.
One of our country’s most important freedoms is that of free speech.
