MEK Iran : Protest Continue

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): the protests are threatening to spread far beyond Khuzestan.

 

The Iranian region of Khuzestan has seen a slew of large-scale protests over rising water shortages since Thursday 15, July 2021. The protests came only weeks after similar large-scale rallies in Khuzestan and other parts of the country erupted in response to long and widespread blackouts in the midst of the summer heat.

The protests are still continuing

The blackout issue has yet to be addressed, and many of the protests are still continuing on, while the protests are threatening to spread far beyond Khuzestan. Over a quarter of Iran’s 84 million people have been afflicted by water shortages in recent years, according to Iranian state media.

Both social movements are primarily directed at the regime and its destructive policies. The proliferation of dams built either by the government or by the multiple front organizations linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is to blame for the water shortages.

The state-run daily Hamdeli confirmed on July 4 that “experts’ warnings about not constructing infrastructure and building wells have always been ignored,” resulting in a “water crisis that is now threatening the lives of millions.”

Accordingly, activism is steadily growing among that population, however, there has been no sign that the IRGC or regime authorities have tried to address the public’s anger by providing a solution. This is likely why the recent protests in Khuzestan have taken on an anti-government tone, with chants such as “death to Khamenei” evoking previous mass uprisings in favor of regime change.

On Sunday, The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), published a statement that referenced both protest movements and was even more explicit about its hopes.

“The mullahs deny the people water, electricity, bread, housing, and vaccines in order to fund nuclear and missile weapons and regional warmongering,” the statement said, after conveying a call to action from NCRI President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, to all Iranian activists. She urged them to “rush to the aid of the people of Khuzestan, especially the wounded,” citing the regime’s repression of opposition as proof that “poverty, unemployment, and disease will continue as long as the plundering mullahs remain in power.”

 

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Mrs. Rajavi emphasized that poverty, inflation, unemployment, disease, water, and power shortages, are the disasters of the clerical regime’s rule for the people of Iran.

 

Since the 1979 revolution and the establishment of the current system, the Iranian Resistance has publicly pushed for regime change. It reiterated that position in front of a global audience at the Free Iran World Summit earlier this month.

Mrs. Rajavi implored the international community to support the Iranian people’s struggle for regime change in a speech on the first day of the massive three-day event, emphasizing that this support will be more important than ever in the “new era” that will begin on August 5 with the inauguration of Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s new president.

 

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): Raisi must face justice in an international tribunal.

 

The Iranian people, on the other hand, vigorously reject this pattern. The protests in Khuzestan are the latest proof of this. But as reports continue to emerge of authorities opening fire on those protests and conducting mass arrests, the situation must also remind Western powers about the need for policies that safeguard the Iranian people and discourage the dictatorship from further violations of human rights.
