Iran’s nationwide uprising continues as dissidents disrupt foreign ministry websites
Iranian dissident activists managed to disrupt and deface more than 200 websites affiliated to the mullahs’ Foreign Ministry, encouraging the Iranian people to continue their struggles for freedom and democracy.
The protesters specifically hold the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei responsible for their miseries and condemn the oppressive Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and paramilitary Basij units, alongside other security units suppressing the peaceful demonstrators. Protests have expanded to at least 282 cities, resulting in over 750 deaths and more than 30,000 arrests, according to sources from the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Youths launched an attack on a major IRGC base in Baharestan, Tehran Province, in response to the regime’s 44 executions under Khamenei’s orders last week.
With concerns about a new wave of protests and nationwide uprisings, the mullahs’ dictatorship has engaged in a new wave of mass executions in the past week, with at least 44 inmates hanged from April 29 to May 5. The international community is urged to take urgent action against the mullahs’ regime for their crimes against humanity.
Retirees and pensioners of the regime’s telecom industry in various provincial capitals rallied on Monday to protest their low pensions and poor economic conditions. They are among the worst-hit segments of Iran’s society, depending on government stipends that have not been increased to correspond with growing inflation and the depreciation of the national currency.
Pensioners and retirees of the regime’s Social Security Organization held rallies and marched on Sunday, protesting high prices, poverty, corruption, inflation, poor living conditions, and officials’ refusal to address their demands.

The government has provided hollow promises of increasing pensions and settling unpaid pensions from previous years but has yet to deliver on both demands. Regime operatives launched a chemical gas attack on the all-girls Chamran Technical School in Shahrekord, southwest Iran, on Sunday, leaving several students poisoned and in need of urgent medical attention.
Medical personnel and local emergency medical teams in Qazvin and Tabriz held gatherings on Sunday, protesting delayed pensions, low paychecks, and poor living conditions.
