Teachers chant: “The Imprisoned Teachers Must Be Released; Even if We Die, We Will Obtain Our Rights; Teachers, Demand Your Rights”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi called on the students to support the teachers and educators. Continued protests by teachers, workers, and other toiling sectors bespeak the Iranian people’s resolve to overthrow the mullahs’ religious fascism, she said.
On the morning of Saturday, September 18, teachers in Tehran and many other cities, including Isfahan, Karaj, Shiraz, Ahvaz, Tabriz, Qom, Ilam, Ardabil, Yasuj, Khorramabad, Bandar Abbas, Shahrekord, and Dehdasht, protested the non-implementation of the ranking plan, non-payment of the retirees’ bonuses, and their dire working and living conditions.
The teachers chanted: “The imprisoned teacher must be released; No discrimination, no compromise, payment of salaries without having to beg for it, no discrimination, no compromise, granting our ranks without having to beg for it; Even if we die, we will obtain our rights; Teachers will die, but will not accept discrimination; Unless we obtain our rights, we are not going to attend classes; ranking is our inalienable rights; and teachers, demand your rights.”
Meanwhile, today in Tehran, teachers called the “Green Licensees” held their 15th day of protests against their non-employment in front of the Ministry of Education.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the protesting teachers and retirees and called on students to support the freedom-loving teachers and educators. She said that the continued protests by teachers, workers, and other working sectors with chants of “we will obtain our rights even if we die” bespeak the Iranian people’s resolve to overthrow the mullahs’ religious fascism.
