MEK Iran: Iran is on the Verge of Exploding
The Iranian regime acknowledged on December 19 that the Omicron strain of the Covid-19 virus has reached Iran, which will very probably add to the country’s already high death toll. According to the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), the number of people that perished is rapidly approaching half a million, with over 490,100 deaths so far.
The media rising inflation in Iran is driving up
The extent of the challenges confronting Iranian society, as well as the regime’s concern of the people retaliating to the deteriorating issues, have been discussed in Iran’s state media in recent days.
The media site Eghtesad-e Pouya admitted that rising inflation in Iran is driving up the cost of healthcare services and products, contributing to the country’s rising poverty rate.
“People’s declining purchasing power has now led to malnutrition, and as a result, various physical, mental, and psychological diseases related to a lack of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals have taken hold in society,” they said. The rising mortality toll and poverty are evidence of this.”Iranians are striving to make ends meet in order to provide for their families, while regime officials continue to enjoy high salaries.
Iranians are striving to make ends meet
According to a report published by the state-run Jomhuri-e Eslami on December 19, regime leaders’ monthly incomes range from 184 million to 284 million tomans, while lower-level regime employees only make 3 million tomans over the same time period.
In a December 11 article, the state-run Arman Daily highlighted the poor plight of Iranians’ lives as poverty levels rise.
“Reports and statistics show people’s harsh living conditions,” they claimed. But the situation is even worse for poor Iranian families. Poverty now hurts people to the bone, and this is a serious issue. If the government does not take necessary measurements, people will be crushed under the high living costs.”
The country’s economy is unrelated to the sanctions
The Iranian authorities has been insistent in pushing the false concept that the sanctions imposed on them are the cause of rising poverty levels, and has implied that Iran’s economic fate is tied to the continuing nuclear discussions.
Over a week ago, the Jahan-e Sanat daily disproved this claim. According to them, the majority of Iranians believe that the Vienna nuclear talks will have no impact on Iran’s socio-economic problems and will not bring any remedies to them. Because of its corrupt policies, the Iranian dictatorship is solely too responsible for the problems.
Families who hardly make ends meet could not think of Vienna
Major protests in Iran in 2018 and the next year demonstrated that the country’s economic situation is unrelated to the regime’s sanctions, as they erupted three years after the nuclear deal was signed. The regime’s nefarious and unscrupulous acts sparked economic problems that have now spiralled out of hand.
“Inflation and skyrocketing prices have crushed people, and they are unable to tolerate more pressure,” the Jahan-e Sanat newspaper said, and asked, “So, why would a family that can barely make ends meet to care about the Vienna talks?”
The Iranian people believe that the regime is to blame for their troubles. They see how government officials and their relatives are paid enormous salaries and live luxury lifestyle while the rest of the population lives in abject poverty. As a result, protests have risen across Iran, threatening a new statewide uprising.
