Iranian author and regime critic Mehdi Bahram, who lives in Tehran, tells Israel’s Channel 12 news that the ongoing women-led protests in Iran will not lead to an imminent revolution.

“I am almost positive that the process that has started now will not lead to any revolution in the near future,” Bahram says, noting that “the regime will put down or restrict the protests with violence.”

But, he says, “that doesn’t mean the women of Iran will give up on their justified demands.”

The ongoing protests, Bahram says, are fueled by “Iranian women looking at other women around the world making advances… and asking themselves why they don’t deserve the same rights.”
