Friday Protests in Iran: Despite Internet Shutdown and Staged Rallies, the Uprising Went On Full Force

Today, September 23, the Iranian regime heavily restricted internet access in many parts of the country. As every Friday, it also tried to mobilize its base as well as force government employees whose bread and butter depend on the state to attend several rallies across the country to fake support for the regime and its ailing and failing Supreme Leader Khamenei.

State media aired footage about crowds chanting slogans of “Death to America” and “Death to the hypocrites”. “The hypocrites” is a mudslinging campaign phrase, initiated by the former Supreme Leader Khomeini to counter the popularity of the Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MEK). However, in some cities, the low turnout became problematic for state media and it was forced to use old footage from previous years.

Despite all the propaganda, the nationwide uprising in Iran is still going on. So far, nationwide demonstrations and uprisings have been recorded in more than 113 cities in 31 provinces. At the same time, due to the bloody clashes with the repressive forces, dozens of people were martyred and extensive arrests were made by the repressive forces.

Whenever in high numbers, the security forces are brutally cracking down on the people and many continue to aim and shoot directly at protesters. Dozens of people have disappeared and their whereabouts remain unknown.

But still, the security forces remain caved when confronting the huge masses of bravery and anger. The people in many cities have now taken to the streets and are crying for regime change and the end of tyranny.
