Iran, July 4, 2019 - The regime in Iran is already facing numerous international crises with tensions flaring across the Middle East and over its nuclear dossier. To make matters even worse, protests are escalating across Iran and raising the stakes to new levels for the ruling mullahs.

In Tehran, following a previous call for a gathering, a group of retirees from across the country rallied outside the Retirement Fund on Wednesday demanding their delayed pensions. Many were also protesting the government plundering their assets and shares in the Retirement Fund.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also in the country’s capital, clients of the Shideh Project Company rallied outside the regime’s judiciary complex on Wednesday demanding their stolen money returned. Ten years down the road, regime officials in this company have refused to deliver the homes purchased by these clients near Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport. This company had presold 4,000 homes and yet there has been no construction despite the passage of ten years.

In Isfahan, central Iran, farmers from the western parts of Isfahan Province rallied outside the provincial governor’s office protesting authorities’ measures in closing the Zayandeh-Rud River to their lands. These farmers are demanding their share of water to provide for their crops.

 

 

 

In the city of Saravan in Sistan & Baluchistan Province of southeast Iran, minibus drivers went on strike on Tuesday and rallied outside the mayor’s office, protesting officials’ refusal to provide them their share of subsidized fuel.
