Exclusive to PMOI/MEK, April 26, 2018 - As the world prepares to mark International Labor Day; the real situation inside Iran has unfortunately gone gravely neglected. Poverty is spreading at an alarming rate and the 2017/2018 uprising sounded alarm bells for the ruling regime.
Iran’s labor protests reached their climax in late December 2017 despite drastic crackdown measures. Iran’s regime is comprehending the fact that this resembles a major potential of protests erupting and growing out of control.
From March 2017 to March 2018, 1,948 labor protests were registered in 60 cities across Iran. This crunches down to 162 protests each month and at least five such rallies each day.
