MEK Iran: Class’s gap Continues to Widen as Socio-Economic Crisis Deepens
On December 27, state-run daily Etemad published an article titled ‘The war of the Rich with the Poor” that confesses about the depth of the class gap in today’s Iranian society and warns regime’s officials that, “this will operate as a very dangerous poison.” “Unfortunately, the gap between the poor and the upper class in our society is widening by the day, and if someone claims that we are rapidly approaching a completely bipolar society, this claim cannot be reasonably and thoroughly refuted.” With a wholly unequal ratio, the middle class is divided between the rich and the destitute.
40 million Iranians require emergency assistance
“In other words, the journey of the middle class to the lower class is much wider than that of those who become wealthy through rent-seeking and corruption.” The middle class, which is responsible for the society’s progress, stability, consciousness, and tranquility, is rapidly dwindling.”The truth is that 40 million Iranians, according to regime authorities, require emergency assistance.

In which the state-run daily Etemad implores them to accept nuclear talks as a means of rescuing the regime from its current predicament.
