Iran Official: Anti-Regime Protests Spread to 160 Cities

Iran Official: Anti-Regime Protests Spread to 160 Cities

By Amir Taghati

A senior Iranian regime’s official said that people protested in 160 cities across the country during the anti-regime uprising of December 2017, something that contradicts the official Regime position that the protests were small, localised, and easily suppressed.

These figures by Ali Rabie, a Deputy Intelligence Minister of the Iranian regime, even exceed the estimations of the Iranian Resistance who reported that 142 cities across all Iranian provinces took part in the uprising. The Regime dismissed this as an exaggeration at the time, despite the fact that members of the Resistance and reporters from Iran National Television (INTV) were present in all 142 cities watching the protests unfold.

Friday prayer leaders in Iran often reflect the views of supreme leader Ali Khamenei during their public addresses, so it’s very telling that they’ve recently been focused on warning the public about the role of the organised and democratic Iranian Resistance in undermining the mullahs’ rule.

The adviser of Iran’s president believes that the city protests will continue for as long as their causes remain unresolved.

In an interview with ISNA (a video of which was released on January 11th, 2019) Hesamodin Ashna stated that last year’s protests were very similar to the ones from previous years, as they shared an economic root; but that the 2018 protests on the other hand, had “much deeper” roots of social nature.

Last year was an important one for Iran, specifically for the Iranian people and their organised resistance forces, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), as anti-regime protests swept the country and the US ended its appeasement of the mullahs.

The Regime tried to suppress the protests and tried to resist the US sanctions, but have failed remarkably on both fronts. The protests still rage on and the sanctions have brought an already weak economy to its knees, both with the support of the MEK, who helped organise the protests through its over 1,000 resistance units in Iran and advocated for the West to abandon its appeasement policy.

Iran: Change Is on the Horizon

Iran saw many protests carried out during the year 2018. They started the previous December and continued throughout the year with the people of Iran making sure that momentum was maintained. They made it very clear that they are deeply unhappy with the ruling clerical regime and it was certainly no secret that they hope for regime change.
