Political prisoners in hall 12 of ward 4 in Karaj’s Gohardasht Prison, west of Tehran, celebrated “Fire Festivities” marking the last Tuesday night of the Iranian calendar year, expressing their hatred of the mullahs’ regime chanting “Death to Dictator” and “Death to Mullahs’ Regime”. These celebrations were held despite intense pressures and restrictions imposed by the Iranian regime. Prison authorities had also deprived the prisoners any fresh air time.

In Tehran youth in various areas, including Tajrish, Narmak and Ekbatan held widespread celebrations marking the Fire Festivities. In the capital’s Nezam Abad people jumped over small bonfires chanting “Mullahs Must Be Killed”.

Youths were seen celebrating in the cities of Robat Karim, Arak, Urmia, Rasht, Ardevil, Isfahan, Shiraz, Mashhad, Kashan, Asluyie, Yasuj, Shahr-e Kord, Kermanshah, Bane, Khoramabad, Sardasht and Mahshahr.

Repressive forces, including state police and the so-called “Guidance” patrols were seen in various cities attempting to disperse the youth. However, people and the youth responded by ridiculing them and forcing these units to leave the scenes.
