Protests continue in Iran as regime escalates crackdown measures

The mullahs’ regime ruling Iran, in dire need to bring the ongoing protests across the country to a final end, has been escalating its crackdown measures and threats, including issuing an increasing number of death sentences to arrested protesters. After already executing four individuals arrested in the recent protests that many inside Iran and abroad are describing as a revolution, the ruling regime is faced with a nation determined to continue their campaign for freedom and democracy and refusing to back down in the face of the mullahs’ repression.

The Iranian people both inside the country and abroad hold regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) fully accountable for the regime’s atrocities and crimes against their nation.

Protests in Iran have to this day expanded to at least 282 cities. Over 750 people have been killed and more than 30,000 are arrested by the regime’s forces, according to sources of Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The names of 627 killed protesters have been published by the PMOI/MEK.

On Tuesday, official and contract workers of the Mobin Petrochemical Company in the city of Asaluyeh, Bushehr Province in southern Iran went on strike demanding answers to their issues that have gone neglected for a long time.

In Tehran, defrauded investors of the Ramak Khodro auto company held a rally and began protesting to demand their stolen investments returned. In other news from the capital, students of Allameh Tabataba’i University held a gathering today to protest the intense security measures imposed on their campus.

According to reports circulating on social media, regime authorities have transferred Mohammad Ghobadlou and Mohammad Broghani to solitary confinement in Gohardasht (Rajaie-Shahr) Prison of Karaj on Sunday night local time in preparation for their execution. Ghobadlou and Broghani were sentenced to death after being tortured into coerced confessions and without due process even according to the regime’s own laws.

Parents and other people gathered outside Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, a major city located west of the Iranian capital Tehran, to protest and prevent the mullahs’ regime from executing the two young men. The protesters began chanting anti-regime slogans in their rally, including: “I will kill those who killed my brother!” and “This is the last message: another execution and there will be more uprisings!”

Iranian opposition coalition NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi once again emphasized that the international community needs to take effective and practical measures against the religious fascism ruling Iran to stop the regime’s killing sprees, and use of torture and executions.

“May governments and international institutions respond without delay to the desire of the people of Iran who are enduring suppression, torture, and execution,” the NCRI President-elect underscored.

The protests in Iran began following the death of Mahsa Amini. Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, a 22-year-old woman from the city of Saqqez in Kurdistan Province, western Iran, who traveled to Tehran with her family, was arrested on Tuesday, September 13, at the entry of Haqqani Highway by the regime’s so-called “Guidance Patrol” and transferred to the “Moral Security” agency.

She was brutally beaten by the morality police and died of her wounds in a Tehran hospital on September 16. The event triggered protests that quickly spread across Iran and rekindled the people’s desire to overthrow the regime.
