On November 20, 2017, Iran’s Interior Minister said that in some days, have seen 150 protests in the country. Those protests that Khamenei’s interior minister said, just 37 days later, became a tsunami called the great uprising of the Iranian people. The uprising of December 28, 2017!
These days, the rise of protest movements across Iran is a witness to the live and active volcano of January uprising. An uprising, which has experienced a few months ago, and more powerful than before, has opened a darker horizon in front of eyes of the regime with thousands of inflammatory societies centers, around the country.
A look at a small portion of the protest movements, demonstrations, and strikes in recent days, reflects the social status of Iran on the verge of another revolution.
The main protest movements have been recorded in various forms of protest and strike in the cities of Isfahan, Ahvaz, Rasht, Kerman, Tehran, Khark Island, Kazerun, Javanrood, Damghan, Kohkiluyeh&BoyerAhmad province, Baluchistan and Baneh in the Kurdistan province.
These moves have been formed by farmers, workers, employees, young people, Bazar merchants, students, depositors, porters and marketers in border towns, political prisoners and detainees’ families.
The most prolonged and flaming protest movements have been organized by Isfahan farmers since the winter of 2018, With slogans that are getting hotter and more political day by day:
“It’s a lie that our enemy is America, our enemy is here.”
Courageous women played a significant role in the demonstrations of farmers in Isfahan and played a leading role in some demonstrations.
In the Iranian new year of 1397 (spring 2018), we witnessed an intensifying fire of anger and disgust at the brave compatriots of Kurd from the Mullahs regime, and in recent days in various cities of Kurdistan, shopkeepers and Bazar merchants have been struggling to make widespread striking.
In Ahvaz, Shush and HaftTapeh and other cities of Khuzestan, people, especially Arab nationals, rose up and protested against the fascist regime.
Workers who are aware and tired of tyranny and inhuman exploitation Mullahs regime provoked the flames of protest against the regime in different cities of the country.
The plundered people by plunderer institutes of the regime, in various cities of the country, students and other social classes also contributed to the recent protest movements. This is a small part of the people’s protest movement in just the last few weeks.
The maturity of the slogans in this period has grown from the specific and guild demands to the slogans of the government’s negation, against the regime:
Death to the Rouhani
What have the hands behind the curtain done, with our money?
Lies say our enemy is America, our enemy is here,
We are men and women fighting for the right to water
We fight We dye, to take Iran back
Hossein Hussein is their slogan, but their honor is stealing,
Student! get stand up! shout it out the cry has strangled in the throat
Reflection of the anti-government slogans of the people can be seen in the statements of the leaders and government agents who warn against the social blast and the sinking of the regime’s ship.
“It’s likely that there will be a series of incidents and threats this year,” said an IRGC head Gholam Reza Jalali, director of the regime’s passive defense organization April 17. “In a general look, the focus of the threats on the people’s axis is one of the main threats and the enemy seeks to create a problem in the Islamic Revolution in different areas, including social, political, economic and cultural spheres, and can be passed through the social network to the people and engage people”.
“In late December 2017 and January 2018, we saw a pattern of this issue, the issue of people-centered, economic and social networks in the field of threats is being seriously influenced by the enemy’s efforts to pursue these issues in the security field.”
What scares this IRGC member, is the multiplication of social movements in rebellion centers. The centers that represent the 1000 Ashraf (as a guide of rebellion centers) and have raised the flag of overthrowing of the regime with the slogan “Death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih and the burning of Khamenei’s images in the cities of the country.”
