6:22 pm
died in police custody. now police claim that she was not mistreated. this story has far human rights protest not only in iran but elsewhere around the globe. for more on this, we're joined by kartika such a kumar, a political science professor at san jose state university. professor. thank you for taking the time tonight. thank you for having me. protests appear to be crossing into other segments of society. we saw hundreds together in san francisco yesterday. i've seen images out of london. do these protests to you, professor feel different compared to other anti government movements in iran. yes they do. the protests initially where restricted t um , the kurdish dominated cities and the western part of iran because the woman that was killed her name is masa, but her cottage name is actually regina . but the protesters now are more diverse , and there re men joining the protests. there are older people. and the slogan
6:23 pm
that they're using is for women for life for freedom, so they're very clearly linking the treatment of women and the restrictions on women's attire to larger social and political issues. and with all these protests taking place around the globe, do you actually foresee professor change? some sort of change in iran? maybe it's maybe it's with the morality police. or maybe it's something bigger. like even the followed the regime will something happen as a result of this movement? the situation in iran, um, is actually quite concerning to the government and we see that they have reacted in a very fierce way. they've used live ammunition. in some cases, they blocked. the internet and social media, for example, has been almost completely blocked, and it's uh, severely censored in some places. so they're clearly taking these protests very seriously. and i think that, uh because of the economic context in which these protests are taking place, because iran has, um suffered a very severe
6:24 pm
economic crisis, both as a result of covid and because of the sanctions that have been imposed on it, uh they are more fearful that these protests will spiral out of control. going far beyond women's issues. professor you bring up the government. i'm curious. when does the iranian government actually become vulnerable. i think it has always been very vulnerable. and there have been times when the government has eased up on restrictions on social behavior . so until a couple of years ago these restrictions on the way that women had to avail themselves. they were actually much looser, and we know that when people are forced to go back to stricter, uh, you know regulations that's when they become angry and start protesting. so i think you know the strategy that the government in tehran has adopted for many years. there's now has been to sort of ease up on regulations when they feel that people are getting angry and then sort of
6:25 pm
imposed them again. so the current regime, i think, miscalculated about, uh, becoming more harsh in the way that it was enforcing what they call the some morality police on people. you know, i've heard reports that the iranian government blames the united states a little bit here for fueling this movement. if so, um should us government officials be concerned here? no i think that it's very common in iran to blame. you know the western hand and imperialist intervention for all kinds of protests, but it's very clear to me from, you know, viewing the protest that there's genuine, um, anger on the streets of iran. i think it's very, um natural for you know, people of iranian origin who are living outside the country to want to support. um their family and friends back in iran, and it's also very normal for those of us who are maybe not connected in that way to want to support them. um but i don't think this has any real impact on the credibility of the
6:26 pm
protests. is the younger generation in iran. is that the loudest voice that you're hearing right now? that's very true. in fact, iran has an extremely young population they have been facing as i mentioned very dire economic situation because of sanctions, but also because iran has been increasingly isolated from the international economy, even though it has you know huge oil reserves, and so the younger people are who are by the way, very educated, you know, iran has one of the most educated populations in the middle east. um they're increasingly frustrated with the government that they feel doesn't satisfy their base. sick needs. well it's a story. we will continue to follow. no doubt, professor sasha kumar. we appreciate the conversation. thank you. thank you. coming up on ktvu news at 6 30. people in florida are bracing for the next hurricane. but the unpredictability of the forecast is making those preparations tricky. also we had a bar that was a neighborhood favorite, has been destroyed in a fire after more than a century
