Teachers protested across Iran
Teachers in Tehran and many other cities, including Isfahan, Karaj, Shiraz, Ahvaz, Tabriz, Qom, Ilam, Ardabil, Yasuj, Khorramabad, Bandar Abbas, Shahrekord, Kermanshah, and Dehdasht, on the morning of Saturday, September 18, protested the non-implementation of the ranking plan, non-payment of the retirees’ bonuses, and their dire working and living conditions.
The teachers chanted:
The imprisoned teacher must be released;
No discrimination, no compromise, payment of salaries without having to beg for it;
No discrimination, no compromise, granting our ranks without having to beg for it;
Even if we die, we will obtain our rights; Teachers will die, but will not accept discrimination;
Unless we obtain our rights, we are not going to attend classes;
The ranking is our inalienable rights; and teachers, demand your rights.”
Alborz, Tabriz, Ahvaz and Ilam
Teachers called the “Green Licensees”
Teachers in Tehran called the “Green Licensees” held their 15th day of protests against their non-employment in front of the Ministry of Education.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi message
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the protesting teachers and retirees and called on students to support the freedom-loving teachers and educators.
She said that the continued protests by teachers, workers, and other working sectors with chants of “we will obtain our rights even if we die” bespeak the Iranian people’s resolve to overthrow the mullahs’ religious fascism.
