During the Bloody November 2019 Massacre, the Iranian regime killed 1,500 unarmed Iranian civilians during less than two weeks of unrest. They imposed a nationwide internet shutdown to hide evidence of their savage crackdown and the true scale of unlawful killings.

During these widespread protests, outraged demonstrators were calling for an end to the Islamic Republic’s government and the downfall of its leaders. In response, security forces opened fire on unarmed protesters. They shot demonstrators from behind and directly in their faces and vital organs. They shot to kill.

November 15th
Iran rolled out a rationing scheme and hiked the price of fuel by as much as 200 percent. The announcement was made overnight, which caught many citizens by surprise and sparked demonstrations in multiple cities. Hundreds of people filled the streets to protest.

In Mashhad, demonstrators blocked the roads and turned streets into parking lots. Protesters in Ahvaz demanded that drivers boycott fuel and abandon their vehicles in the middle of highways as a sign of protest.

Many chanted slogans calling for an end to the Islamic Republic regime.

Demonstrators gathered in over 50 cities to protest the sudden price hike. Security forces shot at protesters in an effort to disperse them, killing at least 100 unarmed protesters and bystanders, including children.

Internet access across the country was reported to be in a near-total shutdown and Iran descended into digital darkness. NetBlocks, a cyber monitoring firm, reported internet connectivity in Iran had dropped to just seven percent of ordinary levels.

The worst violence happened in the city of Mahshahr and its suburbs. A large force of Revolutionary Guards entered the city to crush the protests. They indiscriminately shot at protesters in Shahrak Chamran, a suburb of Mahshahr. Other protestors fled to a nearby marsh to seek refuge. The Revolutionary Guards encircled the protestors in the marsh and shot those trying to escape with machine guns. They then carried the dead bodies away on "a truck" and left. Families of the victims were told not to hold funerals or give interviews.

Despite a heavy security presence, protests continued in Tehran, Karaj, Shiraz, and Isfahan. According to The Guardian, widespread protests reached 70% of provinces.

In Mahshahr, Revolutionary Guards arrived in tanks and carried out an hours-long gun battle against locals. Most of the victims had head and chest gunshot wounds. Some of the wounded protestors were arrested in the hospital. The Revolutionary Guards reportedly took the bodies of the dead victims to hide to cover up the real death toll.

Iran partially restored internet access.
November 26th

December 23rd
Reuters reported that a death toll provided by three unnamed Iranian officials was about 1,500 including at least 17 teenagers and about 400 women.
We still don’t know all the victims. The extent of the government crackdown is still unknown. The Iranian government has put immense pressure on the families of those killed in the protests in order to prevent them from publicizing the names of the victims. The families have been threatened, arrested, and are not allowed to publicly speak about the killings.
