Iranians continue to protest as they prepare for major rallies next week
People across Iran are calling for a three-day nationwide campaign of escalating protests to mark the country’s Students Day on December 7. The increase in anti-regime protests is set to begin on December 5 and aims to deal another blow to the mullahs’ regime as a whole.
According to early Thursday morning reports, truck drivers in Isfahan are continuing the nationwide strike because there are no trucks on the normally busy Azadegan road. According to another report from this city in central Iran, truck drivers at the local refinery are also on strike.
Truck drivers continued to strike in Mashhad and Firuzkhuh, while employees of the Raja New Industrial Company in Tehran went on strike and held protest rallies. Truck drivers in Sumar, western Iran, also went on strike on Thursday in support of nationwide protests and the regime’s brutal crackdown on protests.
Iran’s regime has sent security forces to Birjand and Zahedan in preparation for Friday prayers. People in Sistan and Baluchestan province have held protest rallies after Friday prayers in recent weeks, with regime forces opening fire on protesters and killing over 100 civilians.
Citizens in several cities held memorial services for protesters killed by security forces in recent days. A large crowd gathered in Mahabad for the funeral of Shuresh Niknam, who was killed by security forces three days ago. People gathered in Bandar-e Anzali for the funeral of Mehran Samak, a civilian killed recently by the regime’s security forces. People chanted anti-regime slogans at the funeral, including “Death to the dictator!”
People took to the streets in dozens of cities on Tuesday night to celebrate the regime’s football team’s loss to the United States in the World Cup 2022 in Qatar. The Iranian people have been celebrating because the football team does not represent their national team, but rather the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the mullahs’ regime.
Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), emphasized the Iranian people’s pledge to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and also mentioned the country’s corrupt sports sector as a result of the mullahs’ interference.
“The Iranian people and their uprisings are the decisive force in Iran. The ruling regime has used widespread arrests and killings to try to change the course of the uprisings,” she explained.
“The Iranian people reacted last night to the regime’s corruption of national sport with unison chants of ‘Death to Khamenei!’ and ‘Death to Basiji!’ Anyone in any position or career who supports the mullahs is seen as anti-patriotic and anti-Iranian,” the NCRI President-elect emphasized.
Iranian people expressed their anger last night with unison chants of “Death to Khamenei” and “Death to Bassiji” at the regime’s corruption of national sport. If anyone in any position or career stands with the mullahs, people know them as anti-patriotic & anti-Iranian.#Iran pic.twitter.com/CKQAz5gqdV
