In Tehran, clients of the Caspian credit firm (associated with the Revolutionary Guards – IRGC) were seen rallying on Sunday outside the Iranian regime’s public prosecutor’s office. These protesters are demanding their stolen savings returned and chanting:

“Hands behind the scenes, what have you done with our money?”
“Neither the ruler [Khamenei] nor the government [Rouhani], are thinking about the people”

At least 400 employees of the Shiraz Long-Distance Communications Industries rallied on Sunday outside the governor’s office demanding their delayed pensions.
“After 12 years, we still have not received our pensions when we were working. What kind of logic is this that the demands of 1,226 retired employees are not provided for after such a long period. They continuously find new excuses about having various crises. Didn’t they close down the factory in 2006 due to various problems? Didn’t they simply lay off the workers?”
Municipality workers of the Kut Abdullah district in Ahvaz, southwest Iran, were seen protesting on Sunday, demanding their paychecks that have been delayed for the past 6 months and their pensions that have been delayed for the past 14 months. This rally was held outside the city council building.
