“Pressing ahead with its heavy-handed clampdown on protesters, the Canadian police are now wearing LRADs (long-range acoustic devices),” Vice-President of the Judiciary for International Affairs and Secretary General of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights Kazem Gharibabadi wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.
“LRADs can cause significant damage to auditory nerves. Another brazen move to stifle the voices of dissent! Hush! Canadian protesters don’t scream!” he added.
He reminded that individuals exposed to weaponized LRAD use at the 2009 G20 Summit experienced mild traumatic brain injuries, permanent hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), eardrum perforation (holes), ear pain, dizziness, and disorientation.
He had also criticized Canadian police’s crack-down on thousands of protesters yesterday, saying, “Peaceful protesters in the so-called Land of the Free are shushed, and guess what? Nobody ever dares to talk about egregious human rights violations taking place on a daily basis in Canada. Well, the critics may have been shushed, too!”
