CNET: Iran’s internet freedom is on life support

CNET: Iran’s internet freedom is on life support. “In November, Iran’s government announced a price hike on oil prices, leading to mass protests in Tehran. To quell the spreading unrest, the Iranian government effectively shut down the internet. After a week of Iranian security forces cracking down on protesters, including an estimated death toll between 140 and 208, internet access was gradually restored around the country. Judging by statements made by President Hassan Rouhani, the internet shutdowns could be a harbinger of more censorship in 2020 and beyond.”
