Iran: Over 400 Protesters Killed by Security Forces During Demonstrations Across 170 Cities


activists and members of the MEK Resistance Units inside Iran have reported ongoing protests in numerous cities and towns throughout the nation.


Protests in Iran continued on Saturday, October 1, the 16th day of the uprising against the mullahs’ regime. To date, there have been protests and demonstrations in over 170 cities throughout Iran’s 31 provinces.

More than 400 protesters have died as a result of the regime’s extensive crackdown measures and use of live ammunition against protesters, according to sources connected to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK). At least 20,000 additional people have also been detained.

Despite the massive deployment of security forces into the streets, including the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), the paramilitary Basij, plainclothes agents, and members and units of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the Iranian people have continued their rallies for days and nights, with many areas reporting intense hit-and-run clashes between protesters and the regime’s security forces. This covers not only Tehran but also Tabriz, Shiraz, Mashhad, Isfahan, Rasht, and Karaj.



While the mullahs’ regime continues to sabotage and shut off internet connections in tandem with their iron fist crackdown, activists and members of the MEK Resistance Units inside Iran have reported ongoing protests in numerous cities and towns throughout the nation.

Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, a 22-year-old resident of Saqqez in the Kurdistan Province of western Iran, was detained on Tuesday, September 13, by the regime’s purported “Guidance Patrol” at the entrance to the Haqqani Highway and then handed over to the “Moral Security” agency.

Amini was severely beaten by security forces in a van while protesting her arrest and was taken to the capital’s Kasra Hospital due to the severity of her injuries. Amini had a stroke and was brain dead, according to preliminary examinations by medical professionals. On Friday, September 16, Amini passed away. Protests erupted soon after and have continued and grown since then.



On Monday, protests broke out all over the nation. The places listed below continue to send footage despite the regime’s internet blackouts:

Sattarkhan, Sadeghiyeh, Tarbiat Modares University, Haft Howz Square of Narmak, Fakuri, Zafaraniyeh, Shariati, Tehransar, Pirouzi, Gisha, Ekbatan, and Jannatabad have all reported demonstrations.

Additional cities that have sent footage include Qorveh, Tabriz (Roshdiyeh district), Marivan, Sanandaj, Kermanshah, Babolsar, Sari, Yazd, Divandarreh, Arak, Oshnavieh, Sardasht, Borazjan, Gohardasht in Alborz Province, Bojnurd, and others.



Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), praised the ongoing demonstrations and the role that Iranian women have played in leading this uprising. Women, she explained, are a force for change, “pioneering the overthrow of the mullahs’ misogynistic regime… During Iran’s protests, they have come to destroy the clerical regime. They have taken to the streets to demand freedom for all Iranians. They wish to establish freedom and equality in Iran.”

“In support of Iran’s protests to topple the clerical regime, teachers and university professors have joined their students and begun strikes. Youth uprisings for freedom can and must be supported by widespread strikes by different sectors of the country, stressed Mrs. Rajavi, calling on the international community to take immediate action to free those detained.
