Iran: Tens of thousands of people chant “death to dictator”
Several Iranian cities witnessed large demonstrations on Thursday to protest the daily increasing and unrestrained price of basic goods and necessities.
In Mashhad, the second most populated city, ten thousand people chanted "Death to Rouhani", "Death to the dictator"; "If you stop one case of embezzlement, our problem will be solved"; "Neither Gaza, nor Lebanon, my soul is sacrificed for Iran.”
Similar protests were held in Neyshabur, Kashmar, Birjand, Shahrood, Noshahr and many other cities across Iran.
The governor of Mashhad called the demonstration of the oppressed people of Mashhad as "an unlawful gathering that had not been issued a permit for," and said: “A number of people who intended to invade and destroy public property were arrested by the police”.
The regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) forces, Basij militia on motorcycles, plainclothes guards, and riot police arrested a large number of protesters. The number of detainees in Mashhad is at least 100.
More than a thousand people in Neyshabur protested cahnting: "We protest against high prices", "Leave Syria, solve our problems ".
They invited young people to uprising and join the protest by chanting "Oh Iranian youth, Rise up! Rise up!”.
In the city of Kashmar, people chanted: "The honor of every Iranian is to say death to high costs."
In Birjand, hundreds of people in their protest demonstrations called for the resignation of Rouhani’s government and chanted slogans: “death to Rouhani”, “no to high prices”, “no to inflation”, “death to the liar”.
In Yazd, protesters rallied and chanted slogans against government officials and increasing prices.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran saluted the heroic citizens of Mashhad and Neyshabour, Kashmar, Birjand and Shahrud, who have stood up against high prices, unemployment and corruption.
She praised the prominent and courageous role of the women in the uprising. She called on all the people, especially the youth, to support Mashhad's great uprising.
She added: "The heroic uprising of today in large parts of Iran has once again proved that the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime and the establishment of democracy and the rule of people is a national and public demand.
Rajavi said, “So long as this regime is in power, the economic and living conditions of the people become worse and the only solution to get rid of economic and social problems is to overthrow the clerical regime.”
