  • It’s really shocking.

  • You see the security forces who are just shooting.

  • The protests were triggered

  • by a massive rise in the fuel price.

  • And within hours of the protests

  • starting, the authorities resorted

  • to the use of firearms to crush down these voices.

  • The Iranian authorities shut down the internet.

  • It happened extremely quickly. Between 24 hours people

  • were no longer online and seeing our messages.

  • However, many people courageously

  • sent these videos.

  • And as the internet has been restored slowly

  • Amnesty International has been able to look in

  • to dozens of videos that have emerged. The Iranian

  • authorities have a history of using excessive force

  • against peaceful protesters.

  • What weve seen this time though is an unprecedented use

  • of lethal force against unarmed protesters.

  • Now I can show you some of the footage

  • that the Iranian authorities clearly did not

  • want the world to see.

  • This is a video from Tehran that emerged

  • on 17th November onwards.

  • It is this moment, especially that

  • shows security forces shooting directly

  • at the people at the end of the street.

  • This is what shows us that the authorities have

  • been unlawfully using firearms

  • against unarmed protesters.

  • This sign on the building indicates

  • that this building belongs to the Department of Justice.

  • The people on the rooftop who

  • are shooting into crowds of people are wearing uniforms

  • which indicates that they are from security forces.

  • Based on our research,

  • the majority of the deaths have resulted almost entirely

  • from the use of firearms.

  • If I pause here, you can see a man who holds a gun

  • and is shooting at the protesters

  • he’s not wearing a uniform and people who

  • are not familiar may mistakenly

  • think that he’s a protester. But he is a plain clothes

  • official. And you can gather this information

  • because as you can see, all the security

  • forces are standing on this side of the street.

  • So in general, it doesn’t seem that the authorities

  • want to hide the identities of these people.

  • And that adds an additional layer of illegality

  • to the situation.

  • This is the footage from the city

  • of Shiraz in Fars Province.

  • You clearly hear people chanting slogans

  • against the current supreme leader.

  • While the protests were

  • triggered by the sudden rise in fuel prices,

  • they have expanded to include grievances

  • against political repression and

  • political authoritarianism.

  • Many protesters have certainly suffered from injuries caused

  • by beatings. People who have been injured

  • are not going to the hospitals

  • because they are afraid that they will be

  • arrested by the authorities.

  • There is at least one report that the intelligence

  • authorities have forced the management of a hospital

  • to submit to them the list of newly admitted patients.

  • There are also some horrific reports

  • that we are still investigating

  • that the authorities are forcing the families to pay

  • in order to receive the bodies of their loved one.

  • In some cases, families have been told that they need

  • to pay for the price of the bullet that was used

  • to kill their loved one.

  • If these reports are true,

  • this is an additional layer of cruelty

  • against families whove already suffered unspeakably.

  • On 20th November the forced confessions of one woman who

  • had been reportedly arrested was aired on state T.V.

  • We can expect that in the coming days or weeks

  • there will be a wave of televised confessions

  • that have been extracted under torture and other

  • ill treatment.

  • This pattern of unlawful killing

  • will continue unless the Iranian authorities

  • are held to account.

  • And for that to happen,

  • it’s essential that international experts

  • from the U.N. are allowed to enter their country, interview

  • the families of those killed,

  • visit detention centers and hospitals and cemeteries

  • and build a fair picture of the horrific events that

  • took place in the country.

It’s really shocking.
