The demonstrators chanted "With the help of God, victory is imminent. Death to this deceitful government", "Enthusiastic people, give us your support", "Artilleries, tanks and Bassij are no longer effective". They called for the overthrow of the entire clerical regime with all its factions.

Agents of the State Security Force (SSF) and the special anti-riot force attacked the protesters and the opponents of the clerical regime, beating them with batons and using teargas and pepper spray. The young people confronted the agents with stones.

Numerous state busses and the suppressive forces' motorcycles and several banks and state buildings were set on fire in clashes between the demonstrators and the suppressive forces. A number of demonstrators were arrested.

At a press conference Saturday, Sadeq Mahsouli, the regime’s Interior Minister, said, “Those who organize such gatherings do not support any of the candidates; they want to use the gatherings for their own group interests and therefore they should not be given that opportunity.”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the sharp rise in suppression of the regime’s opponents, factional purges and widespread feuding within the regime as the consequence of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s reappointment as the mullahs’ president and called on international human rights organizations to condemn of the brutal suppression.

These demonstrations take place while the clerical regime has stationed thousands of its suppressive SSF and anti riot forces in various locations in Tehran, especially in streets leading to the Interior Ministry, to enforce a reign of terror and repression.

Ahmad Reza Radan, Deputy Commander of the SSF, openly threatened earlier on Saturday, “Any unauthorized gathering will be dealt with.” In addition to this, the Fars news agency, affiliated to the regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, said, “The SSF has a strong presence on the scene.”
