Uprisings of Kermanshah and Mashhad and other cities are death knell for the corrupt dictatorship of mullahs, and the rise of democracy, justice and popular sovereignty, said Maryam Rajavi.
Popular Protests and Uprising Shake the Foundation of Iran Regime
For the second day, thousands of protesters took to the streets in a number cities in Iran on 29 December 2017 to demonstrate against the mullahs regime and rising prices of commodities and basic goods. The protesters chanted “Death to the Dictator” and “Bread, Job, Freedom”. They also chanted “Not Gaza, Not Lebanon, My Life is for Iran”.
In solidarity with the people of Mashhad uprising and “No to High Prices” demonstrations, the people of Kermanshah (western Iran) since Friday morning, December 29, rushed to the streets and chanted slogans “Death to the Dictator”, “do not be afraid, do not be afraid, we are all together”, “Death to Rouhani”. The number of demonstrators was increasing as the protest continued.
Also in Kermanshah, protester chanted “Free Political Prisoners”.
In city of Shiraz (southern Iran) protesters shouted at the State Security Forces and told them ‘Go and arrest the thieves’ a reference to widespread corruptions in the country.
In southwestern Iran, in city of Khoramabad, protesters joined the nationwide call for today’s protest.
In his sermons in the so-called Friday payers, Mullah Alamolhoda, the representative of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in northeastern Mashhad, said a few people had taken advantage of yesterday’s protests against rising prices to raise slogans against Iran’s involvement in regional conflicts.
“Some people had come to express their demands, but suddenly, in a crowd of hundreds, a small group that did not exceed 50, shouted deviant and horrendous slogans such as “Let go of Palestine”, “Not Gaza, not Lebanon, I’d give my life for Iran”,’ Alamolhoda said.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the heroic people of Kermanshah and other cities who rose up today chanting “death or freedom”, “death to Rouhani”, “death to the dictator”, and “political prisoners must be freed”, and protested against high prices, poverty and corruption.
“Yesterday Mashhad, today Kermanshah, and tomorrow throughout Iran; this uprising has tolled the death knell for the overthrow of the totally corrupt dictatorship of the mullahs, and is the rise of democracy, justice and popular sovereignty,” Mrs. Rajavi said.
