Iranian Uprising Enters its 35th Day


Rebellion at Evin Prison Proved Iranian Regime’s Failure to Intimidate Dissent.


The nationwide uprising in Iran entered its second month, with the 35th day of anti-regime protests.

Protests spread across Iran

Protests in Iran have now spread to 193 cities. According to sources from the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the regime’s forces have killed over 400 people and arrested over 20,000. The MEK has released the names of 224 protesters who were killed.

The latest uprising erupted last month at the funeral of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman killed by Tehran’s “morality police.” Mahsa fell into a coma on September 13 after being taken away for re-education because she was “mal-veiled.”



Karaj’s Qezel Hesar prison

The reports came from Karaj’s Qezel Hesar prison on Monday. According to reports, inmates at the prison were chanting “Death to Khamenei!” on the prison grounds. Outside, sirens and gunshots could be heard.

Around 10 a.m. local time, 50 prison guards with firearms were stationed on the rooftops of the prison’s buildings, aiming at the inmates. This incident occurs just two days after the regime carried out a massive crackdown in Evin Prison, killing and injuring numerous prisoners.



University student protests

Several cities reported student protests on Monday. In Shahrekord, students from Islamic Azad University expressed their determination to continue the protests and to follow in the footsteps of all those killed by the regime’s security forces.

“There are a thousand more [rising] for whoever is killed!” the students chanted. Security forces attacked a demonstration of University of Medical Technology students in Ardabil. In Tehran, students from the University of Medical Sciences demonstrated against the regime’s oppression of protesters.

Protests by students lasted all day Monday. Students from Khalij-e Fars University protested in Bushehr, chanting “Death to the oppressor! Whether it’s the Shah or [Khamenei]!” reflecting the Iranian people’s rejection of both the mullahs’ and the Shah’s dictatorships.”

Students from Islamic Azad University chanted, “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom! ” a slogan that is gaining traction throughout Iran. Students from Islamic Azad University chanted in Isfahan’s Najafabad, “Mullahs must go!” In Tehran, students from Tehran University and Islamic Azad University staged protests, calling for unity and a strike.



Protests by college students across the country

On Sunday, college students across the country took to the streets, chanting anti-regime slogans and particularly condemning the mullahs’ Saturday night attack on Evin Prison.

According to reports from Iran, at least 60 inmates were killed or injured after being attacked by security forces and anti-rioters at Evin Prison. This attack was carried out in response to Evin inmates from Wards 7 and 8 taking to the prison yard to express their support for the ongoing Iranian uprising and chanting slogans aimed specifically at regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.



The international community must intervene

Iranian opposition NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi emphasized once more that the international community must intervene in this matter, adding that “news from Evin Prison indicate that the prisoners have been shot with live ammunition and pellets. I reiterate that the United Nations and the UN Security Council must hold the Iranian regime and its leaders accountable for the crimes they commit on a daily basis.”

“The regime initially claimed four prisoners were killed by smoke after walking on landmines to cover up its crime. The fire in Evin appears to have been planned in advance. They will go to any length to maintain their rule, as evidenced by the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners,” Mrs. Rajavi stated.
