For the past 3 or 4 days folks in Iran have been protesting the economic conditions. Prices are going up and wages are stagnate, with no improvement on the horizon. So folks have taken to the streets to protest their government.
The Iranian government is starting to crack down and warn protesters it will not tolerate violence. So far the only violence seems to be coming from the government. The government is also trying to shut down social media platforms to “prevent violence”.
One of the best way to oppose an authoritarian government is for the citizens to be able to speak freely amongst themselves, and voice their grievances to and about their government. Free speech needs to be protected and advanced by those who have it. We need to support those in Iran who are looking for their voice while exercising their right of free speech.
Daily Bible Reading: Genesis 3:14-15 So the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”
