Reporting by PMOI/MEK
Iran, December 8, 2019—The Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is updating its reports covering the November uprising, now confirming the names of 380 protesters killed by the mullahs’ oppressive security forces. The protests that quickly expanded to at least 189 cities and towns across the country and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the parent coalition of the MEK, has tallied the total number of protesters killed by the mullahs’ security forces to 1,029 at the publication of this report.

The brutal crackdown imposed by the mullahs’ Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), Basij and other oppressive apparatuses also resulted in over 4,000 injuries and at least 12,000 detainees placed behind bars. Concerns are escalating over these prisoners’ fates as they are most certainly under torture as the regime is desperate to obtain coerced confessions in an attempt to justify its ruthless crackdown. Furthermore, there are reports of the number of detained protesters escalating throughout Iran.
Rallies marking Students Day
Despite the regime’s oppressive security measures, including dispatching intelligence, police and plainclothes units around Tehran University and the Amirkabir University of Technology in the Iranian capital, a large number of students held campus rallies marking the Iranian calendar Students Day. The rally participants were seen chanting slogans in support of the Iranian people’s November uprising and expressing solidarity with the protesters, those killed and wounded, and chanting against the mullahs’ regime.
In Tehran University, the students called for the release of political prisoners and protesters arrested. Knowing the regime’s plans to have Ebrahim Raisi, the so-called judiciary chief known for his role in the regime’s executions during the past four decades, the students were heard chanting, “The judiciary of murderers, paving the path for a bloodbath.”
Concerned of escalating protests, the regime’s oppressive forces had to usher Raisi into the university in secret and prevented college students from entering the hall where he was delivering his speech.

Iranian opposition NCRI President Maryam Rajavi hailed the students for their brave protests and keeping the flames of the November uprising alive.
“With chants of ‘I will revenge the killing of my brother,’ and ‘My martyred brother, I will continue your path,’ they showed Iran’s universities remain as fortresses of freedom and will continue the path of martyrs of the November 2019 uprising,” Madam Rajavi said. “This is a revolution which march forward to end religious fascism and establish democracy and popular sovereignty in Iran.”
