Iran Uprising at a Glance – Day 77

Based partially on reporting by PMOI (MEK) Network in Iran

Thursday, December 1, 2022 – 7 PM GMT+1

  • Days: 77
  • Protests: 277 cities
  • Fatalities: 680+ estimated deaths, 545 identified by MEK
  • Detentions: 30,000+

An array of strikes in the commercial, services, and industrial sectors continued today. Merchants and store owners, workers and employees of the country’s industrial sector, and truck drivers throughout the country signaled their sympathy with the protesters and delivered on their promise to continue striking.

The protests in Iran are continuing as people remain steadfast in their pursuit of overthrowing the regime and establishing a free and democratic country. The cheerful celebration of the loss of what Iranians called “the regime’s team” in World Cup 2022 in Doha, was met with yet another display of barbaric violence by the security forces in the early hours after midnight of November 30. A commuter in Bandar Anzali, northern Iran, who was honking his car horn in celebration, 27-year-old Mehran Samak, was shot to death by security forces. Samak was buried on Wednesday as mourners shouted at security forces, “Death to Khamenei”, and “You are foul, you are immoral, I am a free woman”. Social media posts also showed security forces beating a woman in Qazvin just for expressing joy at the loss of the regime’s team.

While the religious fascist regime and its vast security apparatus struggle to contain the uprising with such brutal oppressive measures, the Iranian people have demonstrated determination to continue the current uprising in different cities across the country despite the various ups and downs.

People throughout Iran are calling for a nationwide three-day campaign of escalated protests marking the country’s Students Day on December 7, starting on December 5.

Why Iranians Celebrate Regime World Cup Loss– Day 76 of Revolution

On Wednesday, November 30, 2022, citizens across Iran took to the streets following the regime soccer team’s defeat in the World Cup in Qatar. Iranians’ rare celebration of the so-called National Team’s loss marked nationwide defiance of the regime in its entirety far beyond any indication.

As the country has been drenched in blood from Kurdistan to Zahedan, the mullahs resorted to the World Cup competitions to divert international attention from the ongoing revolution. Instead, it met a significant failure, and the world witnessed that the regime’s soccer team no longer represents the nation, let alone its political officials.
