Secretary Pompeo condemns Iran’s aggression towards protesters
OAN Newsroom, November 26, 2019
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. will keep punishing Iran as long as it continues to use violence on protesters. During a press briefing at the State Department Tuesday, Pompeo said he and President Trump have been following the anti-government demonstrations in the Islamic Republic.
The U.S. secretary went on to say the people are taking to the streets as a result of the regime’s poor economic management, adding, the government is responding to their concerns with violence. Pompeo also revealed the U.S. asked demonstrators to send videos of the government’s abuses, so the U.S. can expose their violence.
This is what’s been happening in #Iran during the near-total internet shutdown. Security forces have shot and killed at least 106 people with complete impunity in nationwide protests. This is what they don’t want the rest of the world to see.
I have asked the Iranian protestors to send us their videos, photos, and information documenting the regime’s crackdown on protestors. The U.S. will expose and sanction the abuses. https://t.co/korr5p0woA

“We have received to date nearly 20,000 messages, videos, pictures, notes of the regime’s abuses through telegram messaging services…I hope they they will continue to be sent to us,” he stated. “We will continue to sanction Iranian officials who are responsible for these human rights abuses.”
The protests have been ongoing for several weeks after the country imposed a sharp increase to oil prices. So far, at least 115 people have been killed as a result of those demonstrations.
This is the reality in #Iran . Shame on the mainstream media that not only refuses to cover the protests but is acting as the mullahs propoganda machine by down playing #IranProtests shame on all apologists @codepink @FedericaMog who support the mullahs https://t.co/uwkdbtOwu2
