The Impact of the November 2019 Uprising in the Election Boycott

“The Iranian people’s nationwide boycott is yet another response to the murderers of 1500 blood-drenched martyrs of November 2019.”

As voting for the sham presidential election would have been “betraying the blood of 1500 martyrs in Iran protests” in November 2019, the majority of people boycotted that.

The November 2019 major protest in Iran occurred one day after the government raised the price of gasoline. Protests spread swiftly around the country, and the Iranian leadership shut down the internet to make it easier to control the people without any news coverage.

“During the first days of the protests, news indicated people attacking governmental centers. Then came the news about security forces who opened fire on protesters leaving some deaths and wounded.

Cities of Behbahan and Mahshahr in Khuzestan province were in the spotlight,” in November 2020, the state-run Hamdeli daily published an article.

Hamdeli then highlighted how many other cities, including the capital, Tehran, had been added to the list of rising cities on a daily basis. “In Mashhad and Ahvaz, cell phone internet bandwidth has been reduced.

By order of the National Security Council, the entire country’s internet connection was blacked off at the same time. To suppress the disturbance, security officials ordered the closure of schools and universities. In some situations, the task was followed by the shutdown of several metro stations.”

“Locals respond to security forces attacking their gathering & protests over the recent gasoline price hike by setting the local Bank Melli branch ablaze,” twitted the official twitter account of the MEK.

The People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported from within Iran that the authorities killed over 1500 protestors during the November 2019 uprising.

The statistic was later confirmed by Reuters, and the (PMOI / MEK Iran) figure was echoed in Iranian people’s slogans during demonstrations in Iran.

Reuters Confirms Iranian Resistance Death Tally of 1500 Killed in Iran Protests Crackdown
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Reuters confirmed in a special report on December 23, 2019, about the deadly crackdown on November nationwide protests in Iran the death toll of 1500 that was announced by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) on December 15, 2019.

As Hamdeli agreed, the Iranian people have been suffering for years under this government, and they will never forget or forgive the leaders.

Executions in the 1980s, including the 1988 massacre, as well as harsh oppressions of an uprising and protests in Iran throughout the past four decades, including the most recent in November 2019, will not be forgotten.

These harsh tactics have turned Iran’s society into a ticking time bomb that will blow shortly.

Iran Protests
(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): The mullahs and their armed thugs are absolutely terrified of another huge uprising similar to the one that erupted across Iran last November.

Ali Khamenei, the regime’s Supreme Leader, has chosen Ebrahim Raisi as the nearly ensured next president. Raisi was the massacre’s henchman in 1988.

After the sham presidential election in June 2009, Khamenei realized that any disruption during the election may easily lead to an uprising.

To avert the same fate, Khamenei deposed all of Raisi’s opponents through the Guardian Council, including former parliament speaker Ali Larijani and former regime president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s vice president Eshaq Jahangiri.

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Former Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Rouhani’s predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was constitutionally eligible to run for the office even after his two-term administration, were among these figures.

Ebrahim Raisi has a hand in the blood of the general public, in addition to the 1988 massacre.

Raisi, according to France 24 on June 15, played a crucial role in the deaths of thousands of opposition detainees.

“Last year, seven special UN rapporteurs told the Iranian government that ‘the situation may amount to crimes against humanity and urged an international probe if Tehran did not show full accountability.”

UN Pushes Iranian Regime
(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): The UN experts expressed: “We are concerned that the situation may amount to crimes against humanity.” They stated that if Iran continues “to refuse to uphold its obligations”.

In a 2018 report, Amnesty International made the same observation, identifying Raisi as a member of the Tehran “death commission,” which covertly transported thousands to their deaths in Evin prison in Tehran and Gohardasht prison in Karaj.

However, Khamenei’s approach of centralizing power in his dictatorship will fail because the regime has no response to Iran’s economic and social crises other than oppressing the people. These will intensify people’s anger of the regime and lead to another uprising.
