The Iranian regime's parliamentary elections will be held on February 21, and has become the deepest crisis of the mullahs' regime since the uprisings of November 2019 and January 2020.
As days advance, the scope of crisis from the downing of the Ukrainian passenger plane by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards is expanded. On January 16, the Foreign ministers of Canada, Ukraine, Sweden, Afghanistan, and Britain, which all had nationals who died, met in London and called for an independent and comprehensive investigation into the event.
All throughout last week, the propaganda apparatus of the clerical regime in Iran had been busy hyping up Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s first Friday prayers’ sermon in eight years. The regime’s propaganda reached the International level, giving the impression that Khamenei was going to address important issues.
On January 11, a second wave of Iran protests started by students from the heart of Iran's capital, Tehran, and rapidly spread across the country. During this uprising, slogans targeted the regime's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, and his tool of repression, the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
