NCRI - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the protests against the Iranian regime in the city of Mashhad on Thursday, 28 December 2017:
"Even after the billions in sanctions relief they secured through the nuclear deal, the ayatollahs still can't provide for the basic needs of their own people-perhaps because they've funneled so much of that money into their campaign of regional aggression in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen. The protests in Mashhad show that a regime driven by such a hateful ideology cannot maintain broad popular support forever, and we should support the Iranian people who are willing to risk their lives to speak out against it."
NCRI - Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in a number cities in Iran to demonstrate against the clerical regime and price rises for the second day.
Protesters chanted 'Death to the dictator' and 'Not Gaza, not Lebanon, my life for Iran’.
