Iran Uprising- No.47
Iranian regime and its criminal authorities from different factions, who have seen the prospect of regime’s overthrow during the people’s uprising, express their severe fear and deep concern over the people’s anger and disgust of Khamenei and other ruling mullahs.
The workers of the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane Agri-Industrial Company in the city of Shush (Khuzestan Province) once again went on strike in protest against the non-payment of their salaries and demands. The recent strike of the Haft Tapeh workers follows the last month protest that ended conditionally on December 14, 2017, with the payment of one month salary and the promise of regime officials to address other demands of the workers. Workers demanded payment of five months' wages and insurance premiums, as well as payment of the salaries of contracting workers for 2015 and 2016. Failure to implement the promises of regime officials and the predatory employer has forced the deprived workers of the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane Company to go on strike again.

Iran Uprising - No. 46
The Iranian Resistance offers its condolences for the martyrdom of Kianoush Zandi, Sarou Ghahremani and Mohammad Nassiri, who were arrested during the uprising of the Iranian people, to their families, friends, companions and all rising people of Iran, and urges the international community to take immediate action to confront anti-human crimes of the clerical regime. The blood of these fallen for freedom martyrs, will surely dispel the root of the brutal regime of the Velayat-e faqih forever from Iran, and will rid Iran and the region of this medieval regime.
NCRI - The widespread anti-regime protests in Iran have been fuelled by corruption at all levels of government that has tanked the economy- especially since the 2015 nuclear deal.
Lee Smith, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute noted that the protests are definitely political, as the protesters are widely calling for an end to the Regime, but they are driven by economic factors that have not been solved by the nuclear accord.

Iran uprising -No. 44
Khamenei: PMOI had organized (the uprising) since a few months ago, they selected some people inside the country; they were also the ones who called on the people to make the people follow them
After a deadly and lengthy silence, Khamenei showed up on the thirteenth day of the uprising, and acknowledged the continuation of the uprising. He showed his fear of the anger of people and, with an inverse tone, underscored the fact that the Iranian Resistance and the PMOI are the alternative to his regime. The regime and its media claimed that Khamenei had spoken to the people of Qom, whereas he was addressing a group of government clerics and selected agents. The slogan of the people of Qom, like the rest of the people throughout Iran, has been nothing but “Death to Khamenei” and “Feel shame Khamenei, let go of the country”.
