Iran Uprising at a Glance – Day 26
Based partially on reporting by PMOI (MEK) Social Headquarters in Iran
Internet chatter indicates protesters gearing up for another big day of protests on Wednesday and Thursday.
The new conciliatory tone of the regime’s officials, including Raisi and Eje’i, has been replicated in the universities with some faculty benefiting from regime connections calling on students to stop protests and engage in “dialogue” in a ploy to blunt the force of the protests. Video reports show students chanting “Liar, liar, we have nothing to discuss.”
The IRGC’s top commander, Hossein Salami, has complained that his forces and the Basij are coming under attack during the protests. Addressing the youth out on the streets targeting Khamenei and his regime, he said, “Why are you attacking them in the street and your honor has become like the honor of the enemy? Can you answer to history?”
Reuters reported that a 17-year-old protester in a central Iranian city, whose name and location could not be revealed by Reuters due to security concerns, said, “Hey world, hear me: I want a revolution. I want to live freely, and I am ready to die for it. Instead of dying every minute under this regime’s repression, I prefer to die with their (security forces) bullets in protests for freedom.”
- Tehran – Students of Tarbiat Modares University continued the nationwide protests against the regime on the 26th day of the uprising.
- Rasht – Students of Gilan University marched and chanted against the regime.
- Bandar Abbas – Video shows defiant youth setting fire to an IRGC-affiliated Basij center.

“The very few scenes of chaos in some parts of the country, and the enemy’s focus on the ethnic and religious minority, all indicate the enemy has waged a full-fledged war on [the regime].
