The people and youth of Bukan played an active role in the nationwide protests of 2022. In December 2022, the people of Bukan held a commemoration ceremony in the city’s cemetery for the fortieth day of the protesters’ deaths and chanted “Death to Khamenei”. The suppressive forces shot at the people.
The suppressive forces had surrounded the Bukan cemetery with semi-heavy weapons such as machine guns. After the end of the ceremony, the people of Bukan protested in the surrounding streets and chanted “Death to Khamenei”.
During the nationwide protests of 2022, the youth and people of Bukan attacked government centers and set some of them on fire, including the judiciary, Afagh store( belonging to IRGC), municipality, and others.
The government leaders are trying to create an atmosphere of fear and terror to prevent the continuation of the protests. The change in the sentences of three Bukan citizens is also in line with this.
