Iran’s history of brutality



As protests engulf Iran, the issues of brutality and human rights violations are being broadcast for the world to see

Protests are erupting across Iran, bringing into focus issues of brutality used against the Iranian people. In particular, the treatment of women in Iran and the inhumane methods that are implemented to ensure they obey strict conservative Islamic rules.

So what human rights violations are the people of Iran facing, and what drives change?

Legal Discrimination

Iranian women face legal discrimination in a number of areas. They are not allowed to hold certain jobs, they have restricted access to education, and they are not allowed to travel freely. Additionally, women in Iran are not allowed to marry or divorce without the permission of a male guardian.

Violence Against Women

Violence against women is also a serious problem in Iran. According to a report by the United Nations, nearly 60% of Iranian women have experienced physical or sexual violence at the hands of their husbands. Additionally, many women are forced into arranged marriages and are unable to leave abusive relationships due to financial dependence on their husbands.

Lack of Access to Healthcare

Iranian women also face significant barriers when it comes to accessing healthcare. Many rural women do not have access to basic health services, and women in urban areas often face discrimination from healthcare providers. Additionally, abortion is illegal in Iran except in cases where the life of the mother is at risk, which can lead to dangerous and often deadly situations for women who seek illegal abortions.

Forced Hijab

The hijab is compulsory for all women in Iran, and those who do not comply with the law can be fined or imprisoned. The forced wearing of the hijab has led to a number of protests by Iranian women, who argue that it violates their right to freedom of expression.

Acid Attacks

Acid attacks are another serious problem facing Iranian women. These attacks, which usually involve men throwing acid at women’s faces, are often motivated by revenge or jealousy. In many cases, the victims are left permanently disfigured and require extensive medical treatment

Lack of due process

One of the primary issues with Iran’s brutality is the lack of due process that is afforded to detainees and prisoners. In many cases, detainees are held for months or even years without being charged with a crime. They are often denied access to lawyers and are not allowed to see their families. This can lead to detainees being tortured or otherwise mistreated in an effort to extract confessions.

Use of torture

Another issue with Iran’s brutality is the widespread use of torture. Torture is often used to extract confessions from detainees, but it can also be used as a way to punish prisoners. Common methods of torture include electric shock, beatings, and waterboarding. Torture is often used in conjunction with other forms of mistreatment, such as solitary confinement and sensory deprivation.

Inhumane conditions

Inhumane conditions are another problem with Iran’s brutality. Prisoners are often held in cramped, unsanitary cells where they are denied access to basic necessities such as food, water, and medical care. This can lead to prisoners developing health problems, such as malnutrition, dehydration, and infectious diseases. Additionally, prisoners are often subjected to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, which can further exacerbate these health problems.

Death in custody

Finally, one of the most serious issues with Iran’s brutality is the number of deaths that occur in custody each year. In many cases, these deaths occur as a result of the mistreatment that detainees and prisoners endure while in custody. However, there have also been cases where detainees and prisoners have been killed outright by their captors.

The Great Resignation vs. The Great Burnout



As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”

AI creates a song imitating Drake and The Weeknd



A big surprise for music fans when they heard a new song featuring Drake and The Weeknd. But there’s a catch!

The viral song was created by artificial intelligence.

A new song that sounds like Drake and The Weeknd has gone viral, but it was created by artificial intelligence.

Now, there’s a crusade against AI music.

The song,“Heart on My Sleeve”was created by artificial intelligence and quickly racked up millions of views on TikTok, Spotify, and YouTube.

Record label, Universal Music Group (UMG) is not happy about the song that used AI-generated vocals to simulate pop music artists Drake Graham and The Weeknd.

UMG flexed their muscle and forced the song featuring some of its biggest artists to be removed from Spotify and TikTok.

According to reports, UMG is taking it a step further and sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streamers requesting they block AI tools from training their models on the melodies and lyrics of UMG artists.
