Iran, January 17, 2020—An increasing number of Iranian regime officials are expressing grave concerns as college students across Iran are expanding their anti-regime protests in what is described as a continuation of the November 2019 nationwide uprising that expanded to over 190 cities across the country.
Ahmad Alamalhoda, representative of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Mashhad and the Friday prayer imam of this important city in northeast Iran, called for decisive action against the college students, resorting to remarks that can be interpreted as justification for attacks by the regime’s oppressive security forces.
“These people should come and insult all of our principles and values, to rise against us and we should just sit there and watch?” Alamalhoda said in his remarks on January 14.
During the past week students of various universities have held rallies and chanted, “Mullahs’ must get lost!”
Mohammad Javad Larijani, a senior regime figure constantly justifying the regime’s human rights violations, expressed grave concerns about the recent developments. “These college students that are making a lot of noise, and some are cited as expressing bad comments, used as pretext by foreign media, are our own kids. Parents should be paying attention. Where are the college professors? They should sit down and talk to them, spend time with them. We shouldn’t allow their deception by specific individuals, media and propaganda pushing the enemy’s talking points,” he said on January 14.
“Of course, they are our own children. Some of them are saying enough is enough. They want to scream, and they can not tolerate it anymore… this is where the enemy is investing on,” Larijani added.
College students have been seen chanting, “Shame on you!” targeting the regime in its entirety and all their oppressive security forces.
These protests have also terrified the regime’s President Hassan Rouhani. “We should apologize… we their servants,” he said, indicating the regime has been rattled by the recent protests as a continuation of the November uprising.
“Liar, liar!” has been one of the main slogans chanted by college students in recent protests.
Images of Qassem Soleimani, the criminal whose hands are drenched in the blood of the people in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and beyond, and has been dubbed as “child-killer,” are being burned on a daily basis across Iran by brave youths, supporters of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and “Resistance Units.”
These measures are sending a crystal-clear message to the mullahs’ regime – already engulfed with domestic and global crises – that the Iranian people utterly loathe their entire apparatus and are determined to overthrow their establishment to realize a new and free Iran.
In Behbahan, southwest Iran, courageous youth attacked a site of the regime's oppressive forces with what appears to be a firebomb or powerful sound grenade. This is a major security breach for the regime, striking fear in all of their forces across the country regarding their vulnerability.
In Tehran, members of resistance units set fire to an image of Qassem Soleimani, describing him as the criminal of the century.
In Eslamshahr, southwest of Tehran, a large propaganda poster of Qassem Soleimani was set ablaze. This city witnessed massive protests during the November uprising as locals torched numerous banks and other institutes associated to the mullahs’ regime. The regime’s security forces opened fire and killed many of the protesting youths in this city during the November uprising.
Ordinary Iranians are learning and encouraged from these measures, and are courageously tearing down images of Qassem Soleimani.
In Sabzevar, northeast Iran, courageous youth set fire to a large poster of Khamenei and regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini.
In Shahr-e Kord, central Iran, a poster of Qassem Soleimani was set ablaze and he was yet again described as a “child-killer.”
In Gachsaran, youth torched an image of Qassem Soleimani and were heard chanting this and other regime criminals known to literally butcher innocent civilians.
In Marivan, western Iran, a poster of Qassem Soleimani on a busy street was set ablaze by a team of two individuals.

Resistance units members and MEK supporters have for over a week been targeting images of Qassem Soleimani to prove once again that the Iranian people loathe this mass murderer.
It is worth noting that any support for the PMOI inside Iran is considered punishable by death by the mullahs’ judiciary. Back in June 2014, Gholamreza Khosravi, a MEK supporter, was arrested and executed merely for sending a small financial donation to a satellite TV network affiliated to the PMOI/MEK. “Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was arrested in 2008 in Rafsanjan, Kerman Province, in connection with his alleged support of the pro-PMOI (People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran) TV station Sima-ye Azadi (Voice of Freedom),” according to Amnesty International.
