The Iranian president gave a speech on Saturday, warning the nation’s “deceived youth”—many of whom have been protesting the country’s hardline ways for months—to repent. Hackers broke into the online broadcast of the speech.

President Ebrahim Raisi asserted that the supreme leader of Iran would pardon Iran’s younger generation if they displayed sorrow when commemorating the 44th anniversary of the Iranian revolution.

The logo of an anti-Iranian government organization called “Edalat Ali” flashed during the web broadcast of the live speech from Tehran’s Azadi Square, and a voice yelled, “Death to the Islamic Republic.”

Since the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, in prison by the country’s morality police in September, protests have broken out all around Iran. The administration has also repressed the protesters severely.

But Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued an amnesty, covering many prisoners including some arrested in recent anti-government protests.

On the eve of the anniversary Friday night, state media showed fireworks as part of government-sponsored celebrations. People chanted “Allahu Akbar!’ or “God is Greatest!”

But many could also be heard shouting “Death to the dictator!” and “Death to the Islamic Republic” on videos posted on social media.

“People have realized that the enemy’s problem is not woman, life, or freedom,” Raisi said in his speech, referring to the protesters’ signature slogan.

“Rather, they want to take our independence,” he said.
