Iran, September 1, 2020—Hassan Biadi, a regime insider in Iran, voices grave concerns among senior officials of the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran over a future uprising in the making. “Up to Christmas of this year, there is a high possibility that we will witness unexpected political and social developments. Taking into consideration all the mismanagement we are seeing across the country; people are no longer listening to various parties and are not happy with the current circumstances. Remarks and pledges made in the past have been of no use,” this regime insider said on Sunday, August 30.
“Therefore, an analysis of the status quo should be presented in fair fashion. We should not neglect the fact that these types of problems are due to the failures of various parties who are associated with rich and powerful entities. These institutions have a significant influence in many important political and economic organizations, and some people, willingly or unwillingly, are doing their evil deeds,” he added in an interview with the state-run Entekhab website.
Mardom Salari, another state-run daily, published its Monday editorial referring to the increasing social gap and warning of a new uprising in the not-so-distant future in Iran. “The only method to escape this impasse is usually violent tools and methods… The protests seen in December 2017, January 2018, and November 2019, and the fact that they were dealt with improperly, are not good examples as they did not render the preferred results. Naturally, violent measures have highly negative consequences,” the piece further warns.
The Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) reported that the mullahs’ regime murdered 1,500 civilians through the course of the November 2019 uprising. These protests spread to at least 191 cities checkered across Iran and reports from inside the country shed light on the horrific scope of the massacre launched by the mullahs’ regime. The PMOI also successfully obtained the names of hundreds of victims killed by the regime’s security forces during the massacre.
Atrocious reports and footage of dead bodies being found in rivers and near dams, especially close to Ahvaz, southwest of Iran, also indicated that the mullahs’ regime went the distance to cloak its atrocities. This also indicated the desperate need of a regime facing enormous hatred from a public hellbent on overthrowing their despotic rulers.

Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), described the November 2019 uprising massacre by the mullahs’ regime as a shocking crime. “Over 1,500 killed in the Iranian people’s nationwide uprising. This shocking crime is undoubtedly one of the most horrific crimes of the 21st century and by any measure amounts to a manifest case of crimes against humanity,” Madam Rajavi added.

NCRI President-elect Rajavi also called on the United Nations to condemn this monstrous crime and demanded the urgent dispatching of a fact-finding mission to Iran to visit detention centers and those arrested. Madam Rajavi called for a UN Security Council session to address this horrific crime and to hold to account the leaders of the religious fascism ruling Iran.
The NCRI President-elect underscored that the international community’s inaction vis-à-vis this massacre, one of the most heinous atrocities in the 21st century, scarred the conscience of contemporary humanity and was construed by the regime as a green light to continue and intensify its crimes.
“Brutal campaign of repression”
Amnesty International also updated its reports on the number of protesters killed by the mullahs’ regime. “At least 304 people were killed in the bloody crackdown on protests in Iran in November. Thousands of others have been arrested and are at risk of torture,” this human rights organization said in a press release issued on December 16, 2019.
