According to Rouhani’s Adviser, There Is a Potential for Urban Protests to Continue in Iran

‌By Amir Taghati

The adviser of Iran’s president believes that the city protests will continue for as long as their causes remain unresolved.

In an interview with ISNA (a video of which was released on January 11th, 2019) Hesamodin Ashna stated that last year’s protests were very similar to the ones from previous years, as they shared an economic root; but that the 2018 protests on the other hand, had “much deeper” roots of social nature.

2018 Was a Big Year for Iran, but 2019 Will Be Even Bigger

2018 Was a Big Year for Iran, but 2019 Will Be Even Bigger

By Staff Writer

Last year was an important one for Iran, specifically for the Iranian people and their organised resistance forces, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), as anti-regime protests swept the country and the US ended its appeasement of the mullahs.

The Regime tried to suppress the protests and tried to resist the US sanctions, but have failed remarkably on both fronts. The protests still rage on and the sanctions have brought an already weak economy to its knees, both with the support of the MEK, who helped organise the protests through its over 1,000 resistance units in Iran and advocated for the West to abandon its appeasement policy.

Iran Will See More Protests and Isolation in 2019

Iran Will See More Protests and Isolation in 2019

By Staff Writer

At the start of 2018, Iran was besieged by nationwide anti-regime protests and the world was watching. These protests continued over the course of the year and into 2019, albeit with far less news coverage.

This sustained protest movement is the largest seen in Iran since the 2009 uprising or possibly the 1979 Revolution. It has shaken the Regime to its core and signals a country on the brink of monumental societal change. It has also shown the US, and the West as a whole, that the Iranian Regime is incredibly vulnerable on the domestic front.

U.S. sanctions have increased business costs, which has provoked Iranian truckers to begin another nationwide strike. While the regime claims there is a popular base that opposes U.S. President Trump and stands against the sanctions, the Iranian truck-drivers are not blaming Trump. They protest by parking their vehicles on highways or in parking lots to show solidarity.
