Iranian gov accused of poisoning food of 1,200 university students on eve of anti-regime protests

The Iranian regime is being accused of poisoning 1,200 university students at Kharazmi, Ark and at least four other universities the day before an anti-regime protest was set to take place resulting in vomiting, severe body aches, and hallucinations.

ISNA, the Iranian news agency, was the first to report the incident, according to The Telegraph. The Iranian science ministry confirmed that the students had food poisoning.

In further protest, the students dumped their food onto the pavement outside their universities. Video footage shows people walking around the food trays and row upon row of plastic bags containing canteen food were reportedly placed on the ground outside Ark University.

Iranian authorities are blaming accidental food poisoning for the illness breakout, according to Hot Air. They claim it is linked to an outbreak of water-borne bacteria in the country.

“Our past experiences of similar incidents at the Isfahan university negates the authorities’ reason for this mass food poisoning,” a statement from Iran’s national student union declared.

In another less-than-believable coincidence, the student union is reporting that the universities’ clinics have closed or have suddenly run out of electrolytes to treat dehydration due to food poisoning.

“The severity of the students’ condition has sent them to the hospital,” the student union wrote on Telegram.

Female students have been allegedly told to remain inside their dormitories at some universities as if that has anything to do with food poisoning.

A three-day strike period is set to begin on Wednesday to protest the Iranian regime. The protests were set off in September when Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman, died at the hands of the morality police. She was ostensibly beaten for violating the dress code and died in custody. Since that occurred, Iranian women have taken to the streets in protest, burning their hijabs, shouting anti-regime slogans, and cutting off their hair in defiance.

The Ayatollah and those in power are desperate to stop the protests and will do anything to silence these women and those who support them. Iran claims they have abolished the morality police. Many don’t buy it and even if they did, the minute things die down, they would be back in force. That report is now in doubt.

“No official in the Islamic Republic of Iran has confirmed the closure of the morality police,” Al-Alam reported Sunday night. “Some foreign media have tried to characterize the attorney general’s statement as the Islamic Republic’s withdrawal from its hijab [laws] and influenced by the recent riots.”

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iranian lawmakers voted in favor of executing 15,000 protesters for participating in the protests, according to Hot Air. Iranian security forces are also firing live ammunition at protesters. The families of the Iranian World Cup team were threatened if the team members acted out in protest.

Businesses that support the protesters are being shuttered in Iran. People are also reportedly disappearing. A jewelry shop and restaurant belonging to the famous footballer Ali Daei were shut down after he backed protesters’ calls for strikes this week.

Nineteen cities so far have joined the nationwide strike in western Iran according to Hengaw, a Kurdish Iranian rights group, as reported by The Telegraph. Shops started closing down on Monday in anticipation of the strike.
