The content of this page will be updated with the latest news of the Iran protests. 

Cities across Iran are experiencing a number of demonstrations, and the nationwide uprising is expanding into its eleventh consecutive day on Monday, November 25.

Tehran and other cities are witnessing ongoing protests as the Iranian people have risen for regime change in at least 173 cities across the country, with at least 400 killed and over 4,000 people injured by the regime’s oppressive security forces. Reports also indicate more than 10,000 protesters have been arrested. 

Protesters are demanding the overthrow of the Iranian regime and targeting its Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as the source of corruption and economic and social problems and lack of freedom and fundamental rights.

Reporting by PMOI/MEK Iran, November 2019—New footage obtained from Iran after the restoration of internet communications shows security forces directly shooting at demonstrators. In many cities, large crowds are calling for the overthrow of the ruling regime and call off the regime's expensive meddling in neighboring countries.

In Zanjan, northwest Iran, the people held a demonstration on Sunday night and chanted, “No fear! We’re all together!”

A report from Karaj, west of Tehran, to the MEK network sheds more light on the brutality practiced by the regime’s forces during the recent crackdown. “Authorities opened immense fire in the Mehrshahr district of Karaj. A 17-year old girl was shot in the head and died. Nearly 15 other were wounded. I don’t know how many were killed. Authorities pressured this girl’s family to remain silent… [Authorities] first shot plastic bullets. Then they started using pellets. Realizing they could not control the crowd, they dispatched a helicopter to this district, and then they started attacking and using live ammunition. A number of people were shot and wounded right before my eyes. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take any footage because I was busy helping the wounded… All the banks in the Mehrshahr district of Karaj have been torched. Most of the banks in the Golshahr district are also destroyed.”

Reports from Shiraz, central Iran, indicate an IRGC colonel was severely beaten in the recent unrest, indicating the scope of the clashes when protesters are able to reach such a high-ranking IRGC officer on the ground.
