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.

They protest by parking their vehicles on highways or in parking lots to show solidarity.

Iran Protesters Will Overthrow Mullahs

Iran Protesters Will Overthrow Mullahs

By Staff Writer

Iran regime’s leader Ali Khamenei recently accused the US of planning to disrupt Iran through sanctions and encouraging the popular people’s protest in order to cause a civil war.

He also claimed that the Iranian Regime was strong enough to survive the US’s plot and boasted that the mullahs would celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution in February; an obvious reference to comments from US National Security Advisor John Bolton, where he said that the Regime would fall before then.

By Staff Writer

The nationwide anti-regime protest movement of 2018, indicates that 2019 will be a year of great change for Iran, according to a new report by Iran News Wire, with the very real potential for the overthrow of the Regime.

In late December 2017, a massive demonstration over the release of a draft budget that cut funding for the poor and increased military spending rocked the northeastern city of Mashhad, but within 24 hours the tune of the protest had changed and the people were turning on the mullahs.
