If You Want to Protest, Go to Stadiums! top official in the Iranian capital said on Friday, as the regime seeks ways to prevent calls for regime change spilling onto the streets of Iranian cities.
On December 06, 2019, Ambassador Lincoln Bloomfield, the United States Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs, participated in a briefing at the U.S. Senate, over the recent nationwide Iran protests. Mr. Bloomfield supported the Iranian people's uprising and their organized resistance, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK). Below is the full transcript of Mr. Bloomfield's speech.
The Anglo-Iranian Communities in the United Kingdom and supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a rally opposite Number 10 Downing Street on Friday, December 6, in support of the ongoing popular protests in Iran that have turned into an uprising against the clerical regime.
Twenty-three days have passed since the nationwide Iran protests began for regime change. A major gasoline price hike triggered protests on November 15. But the protests quickly turned political and targeted the entirety of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, led by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
More than 1,000 anti-government protesters may have been killed by the Iranian regime’s security forces amid the recent Iran protests, a senior official at the United States State Department said Thursday, one day after authorities in Iran acknowledged that demonstrators have been shot and killed in the unrest.
On Wednesday, Iranian state television broadcasted the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s positive response to a request by the Secretary of the regime’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, over the victims of the recent nationwide uprising. Shamkhani had earlier shamelessly requested Khamenei to somehow “pardon” the victims.
