Iran: Protest rallies reported in Tehran & two other cities

Reported by PMOI/MEK

 

Iran, Sept. 18, 2018 - With each passing day protest rallies are mushrooming on a more frequent basis across Iran.

Clients of the Caspian credit firm, associated to the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), rallied outside the Central Bank on Monday and closed the Mirdamad Avenue. They were heard protesting and complaining about their savings being stolen.

 

In Rasht, northern Iran, another such rally was held again by Caspian clients also demanding their savings returned.

“In an Islamic country, we have raised our complaints for two years, with no one listening”

“Death to high prices”

“Death to oppressors, death to thieves”

 

 

 

Also in Rasht, retired workers of the Iran Poplin factories held a rally demanding their due paychecks and protesting delays in this regard. They were also complaining how stock owners have yet to receive their profits.

 

 

 

In Kuhdasht of Lorestan Province in western Iran a number of locals were seen rallying outside the city’s mayor office and Road & Construction Department protesting water shortages and very poor road conditions.

 

 

 

In an interview with One America Network, Ali Safavi, a member of the Iranian opposition coalition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), sheds light on the opposition movement’s role inside the country ongoing protests throughout Iran and the foreign policy the Trump administration can take in regards to Tehran’s mullahs.

“Obviously, the protests that you see now are the continuation of the major nationwide uprisings that erupted back in December and January in 142 cities. The main reason is the fact that the Iranian regime has been unable to address the many demands of the Iranian people. The economy is on the verge of bankruptcy,” Safavi explained.

The Iranian people are now seeking regime change and the mullahs are fearful of this very savvy nation. Over 44 million people in Iran are active on the popular messaging app, Telegram, and becoming more informed about news from throughout the country and across the globe. This is breaking the barriers imposed by the mullahs’ regime and allowing dissidents to coordinate their anti-regime protests.

Iranian protesters are also very angry over the mullahs’ foreign policy of providing over $100 billion propping the Assad regime in Syria, hundreds of millions of dollars each year to fund the terrorist Lebanese Hezbollah group, financial and military assistance to sectarian Shiite militias in Iraq, Safavi explained, adding the importance of Washington vocally supporting the ongoing protests in Iran.

“To the extent that the [Trump] administration pursues a firm and decisive policy against the mullahs of Iran, I think that sends an encouraging signal to the people of Iran. If the Iranian people see on the international level there is support for their aspiration and that there is an attempt to deny the Iranian regime the means with which it suppresses its own people and foments chaos through the Middle East, they would be encouraged and they would be emboldened,” Safavi added.

The PMOI/MEK network inside Iran has been actively establishing “Resistance Units” and heavily focused on organizing these protests. Young men and women are leading the demonstrations against the regime, and literally connect the variety of opposition pockets together in the struggle against the mullahs.
