Uprising in Isfahan, Shiraz, Mashhad, Shahin Shahr and Najaf Abad
Iran Uprising- No. 195
Since this morning, Thursday, August 2, angry protesters in various cities across the country, including Isfahan, Mashhad, Shiraz, Najaf Abad and Shahin Shahr, demonstrated against the tyranny of the mullahs’ regime, chanting slogans such as: Death to the Dictator. It was at a time when the repressive forces were on full alert from the first hours of the morning to prevent the formation of these protests, but they failed. The Internet connections have slowed down in many parts of the country.
Demonstration started at Shapur Jadid in Isfahan with the slogan: Don’t be scared, don’t be scared, we are all together. The people burned rubber tires to counteract the tear gas and prevent the attack of repressive forces. Anti-riot guards and criminal plainclothes mercenaries attacked the protesters; however, the people clashed with and punished them with sticks, rocks and even bare hand. A number of protesters were arrested.
In Shahin Shahr (Isfahan province), the people protested, chanting: Iranians, support us!.
A large number of people in Shiraz started their protests from the Zand intersection and chanted: Death to the Dictator; Cannon, tank, firecracker, the mullahs must be killed; Rouhani, shame on you, let go of the country. Courageous young people are struggling with repressive forces, and by burning tires, they have blocked IRGC forces and anti-riot guard mercenaries.
Thousands of people from Mashhad rallied from Shohada Square to Tohid Square and chanted the slogans: "Death to the Dictator; Down with high prices; Shame on you who live in palaces, let go of the country. The repressive forces started shooting into the air and firing blank guns. The riot guard attacked the people and arrested some of them, but the people continued to confront and continue their protests. They also chanted: High prices, misery, down with Rouhani.
