News: Iran protests

Over 271 protests in January in Iran

Over 271 protests in January in Iran

By Staff Writer

The Iranian Regime continued to be besieged by protests in January 2019, more than a year after the anti-regime uprising began, with over 271 protests recorded across 72 cities, villages, and industrial areas. That’s an average of nine protests per day.

This is still lower than the amount that Iran was used to seeing during 2018, but it is likely only a temporary thing, due to poor weather (i.e. large snowfalls), limited payment of the workers, and the systematic suppression and mass arrests of protesters over the past couple of months. Let’s look at the breakdown of these protests.

Teachers Continue to Strike in Iran

Teachers Continue to Strike in Iran

By Mohammad Sadat Khansari 

Anti-regime protests have become routine in Iran this past year, but it is the strikes and demonstrations of Iranian teachers that is especially notable, given their commitment to improving the lives of future generations through regime change as well as education.

This is a report of the protest actions taken by teachers across Iran in just the past two weeks; although given the suppression by the Iranian Regime, this may be incomplete.

Iran Official: Anti-Regime Protests Spread to 160 Cities

Iran Official: Anti-Regime Protests Spread to 160 Cities

By Amir Taghati

A senior Iranian regime’s official said that people protested in 160 cities across the country during the anti-regime uprising of December 2017, something that contradicts the official Regime position that the protests were small, localised, and easily suppressed.

These figures by Ali Rabie, a Deputy Intelligence Minister of the Iranian regime, even exceed the estimations of the Iranian Resistance who reported that 142 cities across all Iranian provinces took part in the uprising. The Regime dismissed this as an exaggeration at the time, despite the fact that members of the Resistance and reporters from Iran National Television (INTV) were present in all 142 cities watching the protests unfold.

Friday Prayers Leaders Demonstrate That Iran Regime Is Scared of Resistance

Friday Prayers Leaders Demonstrate That Iran Regime Is Scared of Resistance

By Staff Writer

Friday prayer leaders in Iran often reflect the views of supreme leader Ali Khamenei during their public addresses, so it’s very telling that they’ve recently been focused on warning the public about the role of the organised and democratic Iranian Resistance in undermining the mullahs’ rule.

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.
