Iran, May 27, 2019 - On Saturday, a group of Ahvazi Arab residents suffering from poverty and lack of basic and vital living needs, took to the streets in the Qaizaniah district of Ahvaz, attempting to close a major road by setting tires on fire.
The Qaizaniah district is part of the city of Ahvaz with over a hundred oil wells. However, the people who live in this area are suffering from downright poverty and lack of basic needs. This area, according to statistics, has over 300 oil wells. All the while, the locals are still lacking clean drinking water.
40 years after Iran’s 1979 revolution, the ruling mullahs have taken the country back to the Middle Ages. Iran has large natural resources and the potential to improve the lives of all Iranians. In addition, Iran owns 7% of mines of the world, the largest hydrocarbon sources (Oil and Gas) in the world, 9.3% of the world’s oil and 18% of the world’s gas, and Iran itself has more natural sources than the entire EU area. But Iran is ruled by a dictatorship that spends all its wealth in terrorism and suppression.
Iran is ruled by a corrupt government that has looted the people’s property to extend its rule. Iran, under the mullahs, is ranked 93rd in the world in health care. In welfare, the Iranian people are ranked 108 out of 149 countries. The Iranian regime tops the list of countries suffering from state-run money laundering. This is one of the reasons that the Iranian regime is ranked 138 in the world in corruption.
Iran is also among the highest countries with skyrocketing inflation rates.
Iranian workers’ monthly salary is less than $100.
Iran is the only country that uses all its renewable water resources and is heading for an irreversible water crisis by the government.
Moreover, Iran has some of the most dangerous roads in the world and is among the top countries in road fatalities. The mismanagement of Iran's economy has led to mass dissatisfaction and protests. The people of Iran believe they deserve better. In the past 18 months, Iranian people have taken to the streets to reclaim their country and destiny.
