Iran, June 23, 2019 - Reports of protests from cities across Iran are increasing.
Around 200 part-time teachers from various provinces, including Qazvin, Isfahan and Sistan & Baluchistan, rallied in Tehran and outside the regime’s Majlis (parliament) to hold their protest gathering on Sunday.
These protesting part-time teachers are protesting their poor work conditions and low paychecks and demanding the regime’s Education Ministry to officially hire them. The Ministry should be hiring local teachers and not those of other countries. These part-time teachers say they have been working for the Education Ministry for five years now and deserve to be hired as official, full-time teachers.
In Tehran, a group of minibus drivers rallied Sunday morning outside the so-called City Council. Holding placards, they were voicing their protests to escalating road tolls. The drivers had parked their vehicles on Behest Avenue facing the Tehran City Council building.
In Kermanshah, western Iran, day-workers of the city municipality’s Section 7 went on strike on Sunday, protesting the five-month delay of their paychecks.
