Nov. 4 nationwide uprising – Statement 1
NCRI- Since this morning, thousands of Tehran residents have gathered in Heft-e Tir Square and Taleqani Street and are moving ahead to join the demonstration. The regime has closed metro stations on the path of demonstration and in central Tehran to disrupt people’s demonstration and disperse them. Some of metro stations shut down are Beheshti, Darvazeh Dowlat and Haft-e Tir.
In addition to massive presence of suppressive forces on the way of demonstration, anti-riot water cannon vehicles are also stationed on streets leading to Haft-e Tir Square to confront protestors. Despite these measures, people are not deterred and side walks and pedestrians are filled with crowd.
In Karim Khan Zand Street the suppressive forces brutally attacked the crowd to disperse them. They beat and injure elderly people and children. Seven people were arrested in Karim Khan Zand Street.
