The people of Ahwaz shouted, "Death to tyranny", "death to repression", "we, the people of Ahwaz won't accept oppression!"
The people of Ahwaz have taken to the streets today for the third consecutive day to protest the disastrous air pollution and frequent water and power cut-offs in the capital of Khuzistan Province.
The clerical regime has intervened by suppressive forces and machine-gun-mounted vehicles over the past days and blocked the streets leading to the Governor's Building, the suspended bridge and the Firefighting Sq. to curb the spread of protests.
The Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi expressed her sorrow and regrets over the catastrophic blaze which burned Tehran's Plasco Building, killing a large number of people and firefighters.
Mrs. Rajavi extended her condolences to the people of Tehran and particularly the families of the victims on this tragic loss and urged Tehran's residents to rush to the aid of the injured and families of the victims.
