SpaceX and Elon Musk Activated Starlink in Iran

•, by Brian Wang

Videos showing women burning their headscarves and crowds chanting "death to the dictator" amid burning cars are flooding social media, despite the Iranian government's intermittent shutdown of the country's internet.

The uprisings were triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish Iranian woman who was arrested for allegedly breaking Iran's strict rules on wearing the hijab, the Islamic head covering for women. She died while in police custody, reportedly suffering multiple blows to the head.

Elon Musk has activated Starlink in Iran in order to enable communications for the protesters. SpaceX had previously activited and donated Starlink to the people in Ukraine.
