Brave Baluchis of Iran take to the streets once again calling for regime’s downfall
The protesters gathered in Zahedan, the provincial capital of Sistan & Baluchestan in southeast Iran, to condemn the crimes of the mullahs’ theocracy and reject all forms of dictatorship, specifically that of the Shah that ruled Iran prior to the 1979 revolution.
The protests have expanded to at least 282 cities throughout the country, with over 750 people killed and more than 30,000 arrested by the regime’s forces, according to sources of Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The names of 664 killed protesters have been published by the MEK
In the capital Tehran’s different districts, including Narmak and Shahrak-e Bagheri, protesters began chanting anti-regime slogans on Saturday night, such as “Death to Khamenei!” and “Death to the dictator!” Health workers and activists in Tehran also held a rally on Saturday morning to protest deductions in the country’s budget for disabled individuals.
In Sanandaj, the provincial capital of Kurdistan Province, taxi drivers went on strike on Saturday to protest skyrocketing prices and increased expenses due to the regime’s destructive economic policies.
The Baluchi protesters in Zahedan began demonstrating on Friday, with locals taking to the streets to launch anti-regime rallies, condemn the regime’s crimes, and demand their own rights. Protesters chanted anti-regime slogans, including “Monarchy and [mullahs’ regime], a hundred years of crimes!” and “Basij and IRGC, you are our ISIS!”
Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) condemned the regime’s spree of executions on Friday morning, taking place just days prior to Nowruz, the Iranian calendar New Year.

“Khamenei did not refrain from killing even on the eve of the Persian New Year. This morning, seven prisoners, including one political prisoner, were executed in Urmia. Iran’s brave youth will not let these crimes go unanswered. The international community’s silence and inaction in the face of the regime’s torture and executions tramples on human rights values.
On Thursday, March 16th, people in cities across Iran, including Tehran, Ahvaz, Sanandaj, Dehgolan, Bukan, Mahabad, Arak, Qazvin, Rasht, Gorgan, Karaj, Tabriz, and Saqqez, gathered at the tombs of protesters who were killed during the uprising. They reaffirmed their commitment to overthrowing the regime through chants such as ‘Bloodthirsty Khamenei, we will pull you down and bury you’ and “We will stand by the sacrifice of our comrades until the end,’” the NCRI President-elect explained.
The protests in Iran continue, with the people demanding their rights and condemning the oppressive regime’s crimes.
