Huge outpouring of support in Isfahan for executed brothers

Fathi funeral

The funeral procession of the Fathi brothers, who were executed on May 17, showed a massive outpouring of public support.

Many videos are circulating of the funeral procession, in which the brothers’ two white caskets are paraded through the streets. Other videos show interviews with the brothers’ mother, an extremely brave woman who told her sons to be strong and urged their friends to use the funeral as a celebration of resistance against the Islamic Republic.

The executions provoked student protests across Isfahan, especially at the university.

We will bring you more information from these videos when we translate them from Persian.
