Iran Celebrates 44 Years of Revolution Amid Protests and Online Hacking

Today, Iranians gathered in Tehran’s Azadi Square to celebrate the 44th anniversary of the Islamic revolution. The anniversary was marked with a speech from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who praised the revolution and urged Iranians to remain united.

However, the celebration was interrupted by online hackers, who disrupted state TV coverage of the event. Iranian judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi also addressed the crowd, taking aim at the “enemies of the revolution”.

The anniversary comes amid ongoing protests in the country over economic issues and human rights abuses. According to The Guardian, the protests are the most widespread in Iran since the 1979 revolution.

The anniversary celebrations were also met with criticism from the US and other countries, who condemned Iran’s human rights abuses.
