On Saturday, Iran celebrated the 44th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution with nationwide protests and heightened tensions with the West. During President Ebrahim Raisi's speech at Tehran's Azadi Square, a group of anti-government hackers known as “Edalate Ali (Justice of Ali)” interrupted the event, with a voice shouting “Death to the dictator”. Raisi responded by appealing to the “deceived youth” to repent and be pardoned by Iran’s supreme leader. The protests began in September and have continued to grow, raising questions about how the government will respond.
