National Council of Resistance of Iran, October 2017
The Iranian regime is going through one of the most turbulent phases of its 38-year rule. While the world is more focused on its illicit nuclear weapons program and the malign activities of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and its proxies in the region, a nationwide movement against the regime is gaining momentum at home.
In recent months, there have been 20-25 acts of anti-regime protest on average each day across Iran. Many of these protests begin by addressing people’s basic livelihoods but soon turn political with the chanting of anti-regime slogans.
NCRI - While people from different social strata hold protests and strikes on a daily basis, demanding return of their money stolen by the financial institutions linked to the Revolutionary Guards and other state entities, and yet receive no response but lie, humiliation, and oppression, new aspects of the institutionalized corruption keep popping up amid the clashes between regime’s rival bands.
In the latest confessions of this kind, regime’s MP ‘Nader Ghazipour’ points to the case related to Hamid Baghaei, former vice-president during Ahmadinejad’s presidency, saying “300 billion tomans of public wealth entrusted to Khane-Iranian has been defalcated.”
