Iran’s Youth Torch Symbols of Regime
The defiant and brave young people of Iran torched huge posters of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and other symbols of the mullahs’ regime, including the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), in many cities across Iran during the period October 3-5. They also set fire to several centers belonging to the suppressive security forces in Iran, including the IRGC and their Bassij militia.
These cities include Tehran, Karaj, Sabzevar, Mashad, Shiraz, Zahedan, Rezvanshahr, Fassa, Nowshahr, Semnan, and Kouhdasht, but there may also be others that haven’t yet been reported.
These daring youths, dreaming of change in their country, posted pictures of the Resistance’s leader Massoud Rajavi and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) president-elect, Maryam Rajavi on buildings and bridges, all visible in public spaces, with the slogans “mullahs must go”, “rise up and bring down the religious dictatorship’ and “down with Khamenei, hail to Rajavi”. This happened in the cities of Tehran, Shiraz, and Mashhad, but again, there may be more that haven’t been reported.
You can see the photos of their rebellious actions on the website of NCRI.
These activities came at the same time as the recent uprising in Lordegan, where angry young people set fire to Lordegan’s provincial governmental office, the office of Khamenei’s representative, the office of the Friday prayer leader, and a number of other governmental centers in the city.
They were protesting in support of the residents of Chenar Mahmoudi village in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province. The suppressive security forces attacked the protesters, firing live rounds at them and shooting tear gas into the crowds.
Still, the protesters chanted slogans like “Down with dictator,” “have no fear, we are all together,” “neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I give my life for Iran,” and “incompetent official, resign, resign.”
The residents are protesting against the local health authority after 300 people, including children, were infected with HIV because of medical professionals using dirty needles during a routine diabetes check.
Rajavi praised the protesters and encourage them to continue.
“With their chants of death to the dictator and attacking the office of the representative of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, they targeted the clerical establishment as the main cause of all the atrocities perpetrated against the Iranian people. This corrupt and criminal regime has squandered Iran’s national wealth by pursuing nuclear and missile projects and engaging in foreign warmongering, which has destroyed all aspects of life for the people of Iran, including health and well-being.”
