Publishing a statement, a number of official employees working in Iran’s oil industry condemned the regime’s crackdown on protesters and warned they will stop working and join the strikes.

While “strongly supporting” the popular protests, the signatories of the statement declared: “We will no longer accept the continuation of these slave-like conditions of our lives and work.  Besides refusing to address our demands, the rulers are responding to our protests with bullets and crackdowns. If the arrests, the killing of people, and the harassment of women because of the hijab do not stop, we will not remain silent, will protest and shut down the work along with all the people.”

As the evening broke, people in various cities across the country took to the streets and some went on the rooftops and chanted for regime change and the death of the dictator.
