Iran, Dec. 12, 2018 - Contract workers rallied outside the city council building located at the South City Park Avenue on Tuesday, demanding their savings stolen by state officials returned. Their chants and slogans include:

“One less embezzlement, our problems will be resolved”

“We deserve to have our money returned”

“You lying officials, shame on your disgrace”

“This incompetent council should be ashamed”

“We don’t want a list of hopes, we want our money”

“We don’t want promises, we want our money”

 

 

In Tehran, credit clients of the Bahman Khodro Company held a rally on Tuesday, protesting skyrocketing prices and the officials’ refusal to deliver the vehicles these people have already paid for.

 

 

In Shahr-e Kord, central Iran, taxi drivers rallied outside the Isfahan Province governor’s office in this city, protesting the officials’ refusal to provide any answers to their demands.

Clients of the Caspian credit firm in Tehran also held a protest rally outside the regime’s public prosecutor’s office on Tuesday, demanding their savings returned.

The Caspian credit firm is known to be associated to the regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

In other news, political prisoners exiled to Ardabil Central Prison launched a hunger strike protesting the authorities transferring an inmate diagnosed with Hepatitis to their ward. It has been some time now that authorities have transferred this inmate toward 7 of this prison where the political prisoners are held, all without the knowledge of the prisoners themselves.

Following the inmates’ protests regarding these conditions, the authorities have banned their access to telephone calls. The Ardabil prison officials are also refusing to respond to the political prisoners’ family members.

Exiled political prisoners in Ardabil Central Prison launched their hunger strike on Sunday in response to the authorities’ refusal to respond to their demands. It is worth noting that the political prisoners’ ward is very similar to a small warehouse. Considering the high number of inmates and lack of adequate hygiene necessities, there is a high risk for the prisoners to become infected with such illnesses.
