Angry People of Abadan’s Uprising for the Third Night Running

Abadan’s Solidarity Protests in Khorramshahr, Behbahan, Shahinshahr, Bandar Abbas

Protesters Chanted: “Khamenei Is a Murderer, His Rule Is Illegitimate,” “Raisi, Shame on You, Leave the Country Alone,” and “Death to the Dictator”

Four days after the collapse of the Metropole 10-story building in Abadan, in addition to the uprising of the angry people of Abadan, anti-regime solidarity protests with the people of Abadan spread to other cities and thousands took to the streets in Khorramshahr, Shahinshahr, Bandar Abbas and Behbahan. The protesters chanted:  “Khamenei is a murderer, his rule is illegitimate,” “Raisi, shame on you, leave the country alone,” “I will kill whoever killed my brother,” and “Death to the dictator.”

In Abadan, people protested outside the municipality, demanding the trial of the perpetrators of the Metropole-building tragedy for the third night running on Thursday evening. The 10-story Metropole building collapsed, due to regime agents’ negligence and corruption, leaving at least 19 killed and dozens injured and under the rubble. The protests started due to the regime’s ignoring the experts’ previous warnings, its inaction after the incident, and leaving those still alive under the rubble. The outraged people of Abadan chanted, “Death to Khamenei,” “Khamenei is a murderer, his rule is illegitimate,” “Khamenei, shame on you, leave the country alone,” “Basiji (repressive regime agents), get lost,” “Death to the principle of velayat-e faqih (supremacy of a mullah on all people),” and “Death to the regime that deceives its people.” They also shouted, “Our enemy is here. They lie, saying it’s America,” “I will kill, whoever killed my brother,” “We will not accept humiliation,” and “have no fear, we are all together.”

In solidarity with the people of Abadan, thousands of people in Khorramshahr took to the streets, chanting, “Abadan, as long as we live, we will not leave you alone,” “Raisi, shame on you, leave the country alone,” “People of Khorramshahr rise up, your brother was killed,” “I will kill, whoever killed my brother,” “Guns, tanks are no longer effective, mullahs must go,” “Death to the dictator,” “Shame on the state-run Radio and TV,” “People of Khuzestan will die, but won’t accept humiliation,” “Leave Syria, think about us.” The freedom-loving women of Khorramshahr played a significant role in these demonstrations. Their slogans included, “They (regime authorities) became accomplices with thieves, killing the nation,” “We will fight, and will take back this city,” and “Death to Basiji, the disgraceful thugs.” The people of Khorramshahr ridiculed the recent regime propaganda song to praise Khamenei, chanting, “Commander! (where are you?!) the town is under the rubble.”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the people of Khorramshahr, Bandar Abbas, Behbahan, and Shahinshahr who have risen up in support of Abadan and its protests, and said: The tragedy in Abadan is a manifestation of the 43-year rule of the clerical regime, which has brought Iranian people nothing but crimes, corruption, and theft. The cry of “Khamenei is a murderer, his rule is illegitimate,” “Raisi, shame on you, leave the country alone,” and “I’ll kill whoever killed my brother” reflect the desires of all Iranians to overthrow the mullahs’ ominous rule. She stressed: Yes, the enemy of our people is the plundering clerical regime that has occupied our homeland. Mrs. Rajavi praised the role of the brave women of Khorramshahr in defending the people of Abadan and added: Their courage is a model for all Iranian women.
