Iranian teachers and educators took to the streets in a nationwide protest on Thursday, February 14; their fourth in this Persian year, which began on March 21, 2018.

At the time of writing, protests were being held in Mashhad, Kermanshah, Urmia, Ardabil, Khorramabad, Sanandaj and Marivan, with both working and retired teachers in attendance, as has been the case in the three previous strikes this year.

Iranian security forces have attacked a peaceful gathering of hundreds of protesters, including many teachers, near the Zayanderud River in Isfahan.

Widespread discontent across Iran is still very much in the forefront. Last year was marked by major protests and anti-government demonstrations and this year is set to continue in the same way.

The people have made it very clear that they will not tolerate the regime’s corruption and mismanagement and they are adamant that regime change will come soon.

Over 271 protests in January in Iran

The Iranian Regime continued to be besieged by protests in January 2019, more than a year after the anti-regime uprising began, with over 271 protests recorded across 72 cities, villages, and industrial areas. That’s an average of nine protests per day.

This is still lower than the amount that Iran was used to seeing during 2018, but it is likely only a temporary thing, due to poor weather (i.e. large snowfalls), limited payment of the workers, and the systematic suppression and mass arrests of protesters over the past couple of months. Let’s look at the breakdown of these protests.

Anti-regime protests have become routine in Iran this past year, but it is the strikes and demonstrations of Iranian teachers that is especially notable, given their commitment to improving the lives of future generations through regime change as well as education.

This is a report of the protest actions taken by teachers across Iran in just the past two weeks; although given the suppression by the Iranian Regime, this may be incomplete.
