Iran, Dec. 19, 2018 - As we near the first anniversary of the Dec/Jan uprising that shook the very pillars of the mullahs’ regime in Iran, people from all walks of life are launching protests and strikes, courageously making their demands heard.

Employees of the Arian Foolad (Steel) Buin Zahra, west of Tehran, rallied on Wednesday outside the mayor’s office, expressing their support for and solidarity with the protesting National Steel Group employees in Ahvaz, southwest Iran.

In Zanjan, northwest Iran, city bus drivers went on strike on Wednesday, protesting lack of spare parts and their poor living conditions.

In Tehran, people who had already placed down payments for Iran Khodro vehicles were seen rallying outside the company’s administrative office demanding their vehicles provided for.

In Bandar Abbas, southern Iran, students of the Dentist School in Bandar Abbas Science University held a gathering on Wednesday, protesting poor education and recreational facilities on campus.

People who registered their names to purchase Citroen C3 vehicles rallied for the third consecutive day outside the regime’s Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade in Tehran. These people are protesting the massive price hike for this vehicle after authorities said the cost has increased by 1 billion rials (~ $24,000 according to official exchange rates).

These protesters were chanting:

“Our Industry Ministry has lobbied with Saipa”

“We consider Saipa as thieves; we’ll get what is rightfully ours”

In the city of Masjid Suleiman, southwest Iran, people were protesting their unresolved problems, including officials’ promises to provide asphalt roads. Their slogans were against Iranian regime officials.
