Iran’s clerical regime arrested prominent actress Taraneh Alidoosti on December 17 after she expressed support for the nationwide protest movement. Local media reported that Alidoosti, 38, was accused of "publishing false and distorted content and inciting chaos.” Last month, the actress posted a picture of herself on Instagram without a headscarf and holding a Kurdish-language slogan of the protest movement reading “Jin. Jiyan. Azadi.” (Woman. Life. Freedom.) Alidoosti is best known for her role in the Oscar-winning 2016 film The Salesman.
