This is one of the most effective weapons against protest: shutting down the internet. Iran, affected by the monstrous mobilization in the streets after the death of the young Mahsa Amini while she was in the hands of the vice police, has once again experienced it. In recent hours, Internet access has been disconnected several times in the country. “There were temporary restrictions in certain places and at certain times,” the Communications Minister admitted on Wednesday. Earlier, he explained that Internet access may be interrupted “for security reasons” before denying these remarks.
