Ms. Rajavi's call to the people of Kurdistan and throughout Iran to support and support the people of Baneh
On the morning of Tuesday, September 5th, the people of Baneh (western Iran) went on strike protesting the murder of two laborers by criminal Revolutionary Guards, and shut down their shops and the whole bazar. Also, this morning, thousands of the people of Baneh held a protest rally. The angry people went to the governorate from different parts of the city and threw rocks at the governor's building. They demanded the killing of laborers to be stopped.
Killing of laborers is a routine by the anti-human regime of mullahs. Yesterday, two laborers, Heydar Faraji, 21, and Qader Bahrami, 45, were killed with the direct shot by the regime's border guards. Qader Bahrami was married and had four children.
During today’s demonstrations, the repressive forces began to disperse the protesters by storming them and firing tear gas, but the people confronted them and neutralized the tear gas by burning tires.
The mullahs’ regime flew military helicopters over Baneh and attacked the people by bringing anti-riot criminal guards to the scene, but they were not able to prevent the anger of the people.
In the course of the demonstration, a number of people were injured and more were arrested. It is said that the criminal governor of Baneh has escaped from the anger of the people and has hidden in an unknown location.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, offered her condolences to the families of the laborers, saluted the people of Baneh and their brave demonstrations, and called on the courageous and freedom-loving people of Kurdistan and other Iranian cities to support the people of Baneh and the toiling laborers. The laborers are being killed by the Revolutionary Guards while according to the regime officials, Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guards and other intelligence and security agencies of the clerical regime are the main controllers of smuggling in the country that, according to the regime authorities, amounts to $25 billion a year.
In a press conference in London on March 7, 2017, the Iranian Resistance unveiled 90 piers, i.e. about 45 percent of the country's total piers, used for large-scale smuggling, and are mainly at the disposal of the IRGC.
