Iran Shuts the Internet
By Micah Halpern

Thursday 21, 2019

I've Been Thinking:

Iranians have been protesting over huge hikes in the price of gasoline.
There was a real chance that these protests were going to grow and expand and maybe even topple the Iranian regime. So Iranian leadership jumped in and reacted.
They sent in brutal police to intimidate the protestors. And the Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced that if the protests do not stop, they will step in. The threat was well understood.
I addition, on Saturday Iranian leadership shut off the internet. It was off for four days and when turned back on only 4% of the internet actually resumed.
When the internet is turned off in Iran real communication is effectively squashed.
Iranian leadership had never before choked the internet to this extent. They liked what they saw. They saw how effective this method was.
