Iranian journalist urges UN to defend protesters from brutality, censorship

Exiled Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad, who has a mass following in Iran, is appealing to the world for help in wake of the bloody Iranian crackdown on protesters.
“More than 100 people have been killed in Iran and more than 1,000 people have been arrested. The Internet has been shut down almost for the whole country,” said Alinejad in a video posted on her Twitter account.
“What do we, the people of Iran, need? We want you in the free world to make Iran and the Islamic Republic officials accountable for these killings. We want social media to ban the Supreme Leader of Iran until the people have the same freedom to access the internet. This is all we need. The people of Iran are fed up with Iran, but they do not have any voice.”
