It’s just another example of how ignorant most people are about the regime in Iran and the dissident movement fighting it: In the 1988 prison massacre thousands were killed by this totalitarian theocracy, most of them because of their political views. If you have never heard of it, don’t feel bad about it, but go and remind some people, so that we will never forget. Because those responsible are still in power.
