On the fourth anniversary of the December 2017 uprising in more than 140 cities in Iran, the Resistance Units and Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) supporters posted banners, placards, and wrote graffiti in various cities in Iran emphasizing that the protests and uprisings against the clerical regime will continue until its overthrow.
These activities continued during the last week of December 2021 into January 2022. On January 3, alone, Tehran, Isfahan, Karaj, Tabriz, Shiraz, Hamedan, Zahedan, Neyshabur, Birjand, and Semnan were the scenes of these activities.
The December 2017 uprising began with large demonstrations by the people of Mashhad and quickly spread throughout Iran. The protesters’ main slogans were “Death to Khamenei” and “Reformers, hardliner, the game is now over,” clearly showing their determination to overthrow the medieval clerical regime in its entirety.
Some of the slogans were: “No to the clerical regime, long live freedom,” “Death to Khamenei, long live Rajavi,” “Massoud Rajavi (Leader of the Iranian Resistance): The Iranian people want the overthrow of ruling mullahs,” “Massoud Rajavi: We have come to fight for freedom, and are confident that the heroic people of Iran will ultimately win this battle,” “Massoud Rajavi: The secret to national salvation is to say down with the principle of Velayat-e Faqih, long live freedom. Our mission is to overthrow the religious dictatorship.”
