MEK Iran: Retired Teachers Ask for Their Rights all Across Iran
On Tuesday, teachers protested low pensions, poor living circumstances, and the regime’s failure to address their fundamental necessities in cities across Iran. There were protests in Tehran, Hamedan, Zanjan, Qom, Ardebil, Shiraz, Sanandaj, Shahrekord, and other cities demonstration in Tehran was conducted in front of the Majlis (parliament), while gatherings in other cities were organized in front of the local offices of the Welfare Organization.
From the  revolution to today, we will exact vengeance.
“We’ve heard too many promises and no justice,” the demonstrators chanted, “Raise retirees and fight discrimination,” “High prices and inflation are ruining people’s lives,” and “Imprisoned teachers must be freed.”In Tehran, one of the professors addressed regime officials, saying, “From the  revolution to today, we will exact vengeance.” We’ve provided our best and dearest youth for our country to thrive, for our country to become a real nation. You’ve ruined everything. And now it’s your turn to be annihilated. Mohammad Bagher, Majlis Speaker Have some shame, Ghalibaf, and let go of the Majlis.”
The demonstrations are taking place against the backdrop of ongoing teacher protests. Teachers have launched numerous rounds of strikes in more than 100 locations in recent weeks to protest a parliament bill that fails to satisfy their requirements. The bill, which was approved by the Majlis last week, merely allocates a fraction of the budget required to enhance the working and living conditions of hundreds of thousands of teachers throughout Iran.
There is no funding to implement the law in the current year
The “Teachers Ranking bill,” as the legislation is known, requires at least 600 trillion rials, according to the regime’s own specialists. The regime has sanctioned 250 trillion rials, but it is unclear if it will be able to pay the bill.” There is no funding to implement the law in the current year, and the government has no credit for the year 1400 [March 2021-March 2022],” said Hossein Arab Assadi, deputy director of the Employment Affairs Organization.
. Another piece of legislation, which is designed to modify retired teachers’ pensions depending on inflation rates, rising commodity costs, and the devaluation of the national currency, has been repeatedly postponed by the Majlis.
The IRGC will get more than double the funding granted to them
Teachers have been protesting incessantly in recent years. Consequently, the regime has cracked down on teacher protests and imprisoned some teacher rights activists.
It is important to emphasize that, although facing huge budget deficits and a collapsing economy, the government has no problems with funding its nefarious actions.
The Revolutionary Guards will get more than double the funding granted to them in the previous fiscal year, according to the budget bill. Meanwhile, the budget of the state-run television corporation, the mainstay of the regime’s propaganda machine, has been increased by 50%. The judiciary, which is responsible for detaining and prosecuting demonstrators and dissidents, has also witnessed an increase in money.
