Iranian riot police beat up women demonstrators

Via Nico Pitney: more evidence of the misogyny of the Iranian regime. Riot police beat up defenceless women protestors in Shiraz today. As Nico says:

What is so shocking about many of these videos is that the armed police are willing to attack completely defenseless bystanders. This video, apparently from the university in Shiraz, shows police not in any immediate danger walking up to veiled women who are leaning against a fence and raising their batons above their heads, threatening them, and then occassionally striking them. It is pure brutality.

Your posts on the Iranian protests have been superb.
