More than 130 protests against the Islamic Republic AFP reports (a summary)
More than 130 protests against the Islamic Republic rocked various cities through Iran in December and January. These protests took place in cities such as Tehran, Tabriz, Esfahan (my home town) , Ahvaaz, Hamadaan, Sardasht, Saaveh, Ferdows, Iranshahr and more.
Deprived Iranian workers, in more than 60 series of protests, sit-ins and public congregations voiced their exasperation toward the Islamic regime which continues to carry on with utter disregard for it's citizenry. Lay-offs, unemployment, long overdue or non-payment of wages are the main reasons for these protests.
Critical and active students organized another 20 protests against the dictatorial regime and the chaotic state of services in universities across the country.
Throughout the recent months teachers and nurses have also marched and protested in front of various government buildings and the Islamic Parliament in order to proclaim their animosity toward the deplorable conditions of life in Iran.
