Despite regime’s increased repression, Iranians continue their struggle for freedom
On Monday, the 25th day of protests against the mullahs’ dictatorship, people in many cities across Iran continued the anti-regime uprising. Protests in Iran have now spread to 172 cities across the country’s 31 provinces. According to reports compiled by the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the regime has killed 400 civilians and arrested 20,000 others so far.
Following the death of Mahsa Amini, these protests began. Mahsa, a 22-year-old woman from Kurdistan Province, was brutally beaten by morality police and died of her injuries on September 16. Protests erupted in response to the incident, which quickly spread across Iran.
Protests were reported in Tehran, Rasht, Arak, Khorramabad, Eslamshahr, Qods (Ghal-e Hassan Khan), Parand, Qazvin, and other cities. Locals have seen on the streets chanting “Death to the dictator!” in reference to regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
Drivers on various roads and districts in Tehran, including Valiasr, Tehranpars, and Bagheri Highway, demonstrated their support for the ongoing protests by sounding their horns. According to activists, the regime’s security forces and plainclothes agents were seen attempting to prevent any anti-regime protests.
Despite the regime’s efforts to keep protests at bay, high school students took to the streets again on Thursday. Students in Qazvin, northwest Iran, chanted, “Imprisoned college students must be released!”
Protesters chanted slogans against the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) paramilitary Basij in Parand, Tehran Province. “I will kill those who killed my sister!” they chanted. Protesters in Tehran’s Kamraniyeh and Tehranpars districts were heard chanting “Death to Khamenei!”
Protesters set fire to roads in Sanandaj and chanted anti-regime slogans. Protests were reported in several cities throughout the night, including Kermanshah, Hamedan, Sanandaj, and Tehran.
Farmers protested for the third day in Khorasgan, Isfahan Province, central Iran. Teachers from Mahsa Amini’s hometown of Saqqez in Kurdistan Province in western Iran went on strike in support of the people of Sistan & Baluchestan Province following the regime’s massacre in Zahedan on September 30 that left hundreds dead and injured. Teachers from Saqqez donated blood for those in need in Zahedan.

Meeting with European Parliament members at the invitation of the Friends of a Free Iran Committee, President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) stated that the Iranian people expect Europe to recognize their right to defend themselves against the regime’s brutal attacks, as well as to resist and fight for their freedom.
Authorities have intensified their crackdown on any sign of protest gatherings, while widespread internet disruption measures have been implemented in many cities and provinces.
Tehran’s public prosecutor, Ali Salehi, inspected the Greater Tehran and Evin prisons. “We will take firm judicial action, without hesitation, against those rioters who rose up in opposition to national security.” “The dossiers of these individuals will be evaluated in a special manner and advanced in the process,” he said on October 4 in an interview with the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Furthermore, the PMOI/MEK Social Headquarters inside Iran has detailed how oppressive regime agents are targeting protesters, particularly those gathering footage of the uprising in universities and other locations across Iran. Agents fired pellet rounds at protesters in order to prevent them from disseminating information or sending video clips of the protests over the Internet. So far, hundreds of people who were filming the uprisings have been arrested, according to the report.
