 Mrs. Rajavi: Mullahs’ Suppression Crumbles Under Workers’ Resolve

On October 8, 2019, for the third consecutive day, the protest gathering of Azarab’s workers continued. On Sunday, October 6, 2019, workers of Azarab Company had organized a gathering on the Tehran-Arak highway to protest the sale of the company and to demand their unpaid wages. They closed the main square at the city’s entrance.

A day before, on October 7, the workers had gathered and marched outside the company. The Revolutionary Guards’ anti-riot units attacked them by firing tear gas into the crowd. They blocked the demonstrators from entering the city fearing that the youths might join the protesting workers.

 

Despite yesterday’s brutal attacks, the workers gathered outside the company’s building again. The suppressive forces blocked the demonstrators from reaching San’at Square and entering the city.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the brave workers of Azarab for not abandoning their protests despite the suppressive measures and threats by the mullahs’ criminal regime. She said that the ruling religious fascism in Iran responds to the enraged citizens only with tear gas, beatings, arrests, medieval trials, and long prison terms. But oppression and injustice will crumble in the face of the heroic workers’ resolve.
