MEK Iran :Teachers hold Three-Day Strikes Against Mullahs
Tehran, Yazd, Kermanshah, Ahvaz, Kerman, Qom, Babol, Shiraz, Isfahan, Rasht, Qazvin, Tabriz, Arak, Sanandaj, Ardebil, Mashhad, Semnan, and other Iranian cities saw protests on Monday. Teachers holding banners that read, “Free education is the undeniable right of all students,” remarked, “Teachers don’t belong in prison.” “Education justice, implementation of the classification bill,” “Teachers are fed up with discrimination,” says one. “Strikes, assemblies are our undeniable right,” he says. “Education justice, implementation of the classification bill,” “Teachers are fed up with discrimination.”
Maryam Rajavi, This is an uprising for justice and freedom
Security personnel attacked teachers gathered in front of the Majlis (Parliament) in Tehran, but the teachers resisted and continued their protests. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), praised the teachers and their protests and encouraged students and other Iranians to join them in their just demands.
“This is an uprising for justice, freedom, and national sovereignty against a predatory regime that has wiped out all of Iran’s wealth and assets.” Mrs. Rajavi explained. The Iranian Teachers Coordination Council announced statewide strikes last week, urging teachers to forgo classrooms on Saturday and Sunday.
“On the one hand, the government and Majlis have obstructed the full implementation of the salary adjustment plan for retired teachers, and on the other hand, they want to ruin the classification plan for working teachers with a 125 trillion rial budget in the Majlis,” according to the Council.
The government has only allotted 250 trillion rials to the classification plan. As a result, only 125 trillion rials will be provided to teachers’ requirements this year, with the remaining deferred until the next Persian year (which begins in mid-March) and subject to adequate funding. According to the regime’s own experts, the plan will require at least 500 trillion rials.
Teachers protested the regime’s disregard for their plight
On Sunday, the regime’s president, Ebrahim Raisi, presented the Majlis with the financial plan for the coming Persian year. The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) receive a 240 percent increase in money, despite the plan failing to meet the needs of teachers, government employees, retirees, and millions of other Iranians. The regime’s state-run propaganda mill has also seen a 58 percent boost in funding.
On a daily basis, teachers have protested the regime’s disregard for their plight. The dictatorship put off the passage of the categorization statute for several months. It has already been approved, but it only covers a percentage of the issues that teachers confront, which is why they are returning to the streets to reclaim their rights. The government’s 250 trillion budget, according to Majlis Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, has been declared and will not be changed.
The Iranian regime is literally stealing from the country’s teachers by keeping teacher pay low. A number of instructors have committed suicide in recent years as a result of poverty and the inability to meet their basic needs.
(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): Teachers held placards that read, “Free education is the undeniable right of all students,” “Teachers don’t belong in prison,” “Imprisoned teachers must be freed,” “Strikes, assemblies are our undeniable right,” “Education justice, implementation of the classification bill,” “Teachers are fed up with discrimination.”
