The Number of Victims

The victims of a catastrophe usually are ignored. We know that in our situation, most of the victims (killed, arrested, and injured) are unknown activists and ordinary people that pay high price without receiving enough support or attention. Now we want to show our appreciation to these unknown civil soldiers. The people reporters and the opposition websites (kaleme.com, rahana.org, etc.) have reported the estimate number of victims in each city. Actually it’s obvious that the exact number of victims is not clear and even could not be clear in the near future. Maybe after the fall of the regime we could find the exact number, but now we could see the big picture. I try to sum up the people and oppostion reports:

One Weak before February 14th At least one hundred political and civil activists were arrested in Tehran and other major cities.

February 14 At least two persons (Zhale and Mokhtari) were killed in Tehran. At least 1500 protesters were arrested in Tehran. At least some hundreds of protesters were arrested in the cities of Isfahan, Shiraz, Rasht, Kerman, and Kermanshah. At least hundreds of protesters were injured and wounded in each city.

Thousands of protesters (Min 2000) were arrested in Tehran. Thousands of protesters (Min 1000) were arrested in the cities of Kurdistan province (Marivan, Mahabad, Sanandaj, Bukan, etc). Hundreds of protesters (Min 150) were arrested in the city of Rasht. Hundreds of protesters (Min 200) were arrested in the city of Isfahan.

Hundreds of the arrested protesters were freed by the people. Actually the people have attacked the Basiji’s or riot police’s vehicles and freed some arrested protesters. The people reporters have reported that in Shiraz, at least 50 arrested protesters were freed by the people in this way. Also in Tehran and other cities the same thing has reported. And the people reporters have reported that at least hundreds of protesters were injured and wounded in each city.
