Protests and Strikes Spread in Iran; Regime Respond With Repression
The barbaric mullah regime ruling in Iran is incapable to solve the people’s social problems and difficulties, especially economic problems. It only thinks about the safeguard of its regime. Therefore, the regime’s authorities are looking to plunder and steal people’s property. A huge part of public assets and the country’s capital is used for warmongering policies and funding terrorist proxies and proxy wars in the region.
Versus this economic turmoil, Iranian people’s daily protests are spreading across the country. Some of these protests, mentioned below, took place in just the span of one day. The regime’s response to these protests has just been further suppression and pressure on the people, without answering their demands and solving their problems.
