Iran, June 8, 2018 - The hypocritical "Quds Day" sham rally of the clerical regime turned into a massive defeat for this regime with the general boycott of the Iranian people. Despite making the scenes and pictorial fraud, state televisions were unable to show massive or relatively massive scenes of the population.
People who are utterly disgusted with aggressive policies and regimes military interventions in the region under the deceptive cover for Palestinian support, face to face with the clerical regime, refused to come to the streets and did not even go to the streets to do their daily routine.
This widespread boycott was while the leaders of the regime and its propaganda machine emphasized the importance of the Quds Day rally in recent days and weeks and urged people to participate in the event. Government officials unsuccessfully tried to crowd the streets by offering free bus and subway services in Tehran and other cities, using free buses and sending revolutionary guards, basijis and plainclothes agents. The regime did not even succeed in bringing families of victims of war and other people whose livelihoods were provided by government bodies.
In most of the ten routes announced for demonstration in Tehran and even the main routes such as the Jomhouri street, there was a very small crowd. In Azadi Square, most of the buses were empty. In many cities, even Qom, which is the centre of many governmental and fundamentalist organizations, the streets were empty.
In many cities such as Isfahan, Natanz, Rasht, Boukan, Islamabad West, Kashan, Saqez, Nahavand, Shiraz, Karaj, there was no news of the march, and there were a handful of people on the streets. Only the sounds of the slogans were heard from the state loudspeakers, and people did not respond to the slogans.
