MEK Network: Protesters Battle Suppressive Forces in Isfahan and Karaj for Second Day

Protest in Isfahan over the plung of rial

People of Isfahan take to the street their outrage over the increasing prices, the plunge of rial and lack of management by the regime.

The plunge of the rial and widespread dissatisfaction with the ruling regime has led to uprisings in Isfahan and Karaj over the past two days, reports from the MEK network inside Iran, confirm. Suppressive forces have attempted to quell the uprising with tear gas, but the protesters have so far managed to push back anti-riot forces and have grown in number. Demonstrators are calling for regime change. #IranRegimeChange

Protests in the New Shapour district of Isfahan continued for the second day on Wednesday as

drivers, workers, the unemployed, young people, and supporters took to the streets to protest the clerical regime.

Protesters chanted, “Shame on you Khamenei, leave the country alone!”

“Death to the dictator!”

“Do not be afraid, we are all together!”

“Our enemy is here, they falsely say it is America!”

“The silence of any Iranian is a betrayal to the nation”
“Death to high prices”
“The worker will die but will not accept tyranny!”

Police and anti-riot forces used tear gas in an attempt to disperse the protesters, but people on some streets shouted them down with slogans. After the police pulled back, the protesters in Shapour set fires to block the roads.

 

On other streets, youths confronted the anti-riot forces and burned tires to neutralize the tear gas.

Repressive forces retreated from some streets.

The MEK network reported that the protesters continued to push forward toward Khomeini Boulevard despite efforts by suppressive forces to disperse the crowd.

Protests have also spread to Karaj, where demonstrators were attacked by police on Tuesday evening.

The MEK network reported that protesters in Karaj were chanting, “Unemployment, inflation, the plight of people!” on Tuesday night.

On Wednesday, the people of Karaj protested against the repressive regime for a second day. The protesters grew in number on the second day, with a large number of women joining in the demonstrations. Videos were shared on social media of protesters filling the streets and chanting slogans throughout the day and evening.

 

Protesters chanted, “Down with the dictator!”

“Guns, tanks, the mullahs should get lost!”

“Iranians, enough is enough, now show them some spine!”

As in Isfahan, anti-riot forces attempted to violently suppress the crowd, but the protesters fought back. Anti-riot forces charged the crowd at one point, but the demonstrators drove them back until they were forced to retreat. The protesters then burned the police motorcycles in the street. The scene was captured on video and shared on social media.

A number of strikes and protests are ongoing throughout Iran, as the current economic turmoil has brought simmering discontent with the ruling regime to the surface. A diagram of recent protests in Iran may be found here.
