MEK Iran: Teachers Continue to Demand their Legitimate Rights
Ebrahim Raisi, the president of the Iranian regime, presented the Majlis (Parliament) with the budget bill for the Persian year 1401 (beginning in March 2022). As the reports and statistics demonstrate, the dictatorship has no intention of meeting the requirements of millions of Iranians from all walks of life who have been protesting and demanding that the government meet their needs.
The Resistance Units put posters up
People from all walks of life have taken to the streets in recent days to oppose the regime’s repressive actions and reclaim their rights. And they have the assistance of the Resistance Units, a network of MEK activists within Iran. The Resistance Units have shown their support for teachers and farmers in their continuous operations across Iran, and have underlined that the only way to solve the people’s concerns is to remove the mullahs’ system.
In Tehran, a sign read, “We must rise to reclaim our legitimate rights from the criminal mullahs.” The Resistance Units are putting up posters with messages from Massoud Rajavi, the Iranian Resistance movement’s leader, and Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in various locations.
Another sign in Tehran stated, “rebellious youth will write Iran’s destiny,” while another said, “the only solution is to put an end to the tyrannical regime.”
The Resistance Units’ message in Isfahan and Karaj
The Resistance Units’ message in Isfahan was “teachers! we are prepared to assist you.”A Resistance Unit member in Shiraz said, “As a retired employee of the ministry of education in Shiraz, I support the rightful call of teachers. Hail to Maryam Rajavi. The movement [against mullahs] moves forward.”
The Resistance Units in Karaj demanded the release of teachers who had been imprisoned by the regime’s security forces. “Teachers who have been imprisoned must be released. “Teachers are willing to give their lives and refuse to live in shame,” the sign stated.
Tabriz, Isfahan, Rasht, Mashhad, and Zanjan were among the cities where similar events were conducted.
The teachers will continue their nationwide protests
The Majlis enacted the “teacher’s ranking” measure on Wednesday, which had been a major issue of debate and one of the primary demands of the millions of teachers who have protested and gone on strike in recent months. After months of teacher protests, Iran’s dictatorship has finally stated that it will meet their requests in a bill enacted by the Majlis. However, as many predicted, the bill is merely a stopgap measure designed to silence demonstrators without addressing any core issues.
The bill was deemed deceptive and inappropriate by the Iranian Teachers Coordination Council. The Council issued a statement warning that if the regime does not accept the whole ranking plan and does not release the imprisoned teachers, the teachers’ community will continue their nationwide protests.
In the coming Persian year, beginning in March 2022, a total of 250 trillion rials will be distributed to about 734,000 teachers across Iran, according to the bill. However, it dismisses the tens of thousands of instructors who work on an unofficial basis because the education ministry refuses to recruit them despite being qualified.
