Iran, July 8, 2019 - On Sunday, owners of imported vehicles gathered in the Arvand region to protest against the delay of the release of their purchased vehicles. The protesters held banners that read, "It's been more than 18 months that our vehicles have been kept in customs of Khorramshahr for no reason. What is our crime? You have taken the customs fee, why aren't you releasing our cars?"

The protesters are also saying that without maintenance, their purchased vehicles will be destroyed under the sun if they're kept in customs longer.

The Arvand free industrial-trade zone is located on the northwest of the Persian Gulf and southwest of Khuzestan province.

Such protests over poor economic conditions are growing in numbers by the day.

Again on Sunday, a group of merchants and truck drivers in Urmia gathered on the Urmia-Salmas road to protest to poor road conditions and lack of facilities on their main commute path.


In Arak, 600 workers of Azarab Factory gathered to protest against delays in receiving their paychecks. The workers were saying they still haven't received their salaries for April and May. The protest was held in front of the Arak governorate on Saturday.
