Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

Hackers Interrupt Iranian State TV, Call on Viewers to Join Mass Protests

HeadlineOct 10, 2022

In Iran, a live news broadcast on state-run television was apparently hacked Saturday evening during a segment featuring Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. The hackers placed a photo of Khamenei with a target over his face on the screen, along with the messages “Join us and rise up” and “The blood of our youth is dripping from your grip.” The image also displays photos of three women killed in recent protests in Iran, as well as Mahsa Amini, who died while in custody of the so-called morality police. Amini’s death has sparked mass demonstrations in Iran, and around the world. The group Iran Human Rights says at least 185 people have been killed in recent protests, including at least 19 children.
