New uprisings are now the concern of the Iranian theocratic regime. Iranian officials have observed that conditions are right for further uprisings. While this is going on, some politicians from western countries are requesting more negotiations.
The state-run website, Entekhab, reported at the end of last month that more political protests are likely to take place very soon as the people become more disenchanted with the mullahs’ rule.
The #Iranian regime is extremely concerned about the possibility of another nationwide uprising. The people of Iran are so angry with the country’s leadership for a whole host of reasons. https://t.co/YnwMh66hsR#Iran #MEK #COVID19 @USAdarFarsi pic.twitter.com/480xs8ORYc

The state-run daily, Mardom Salari, stated that dissatisfaction with the way the country is run is likely to lead to more confrontations, as happened in December 2017 and November 2019.
Even Hashem Harrisi, a member of the Majilis, says the people are far apart in their views about the current regime and the relationship between the two is fragile. He says the regime should not just sit back and let the establishment die.
The state-run daily, Setareh Sobh, recently interviewed regime sociologist Amanollah Gharayi Moghadam, who reported that up to 60 million out of an 80 million population were in need of assistance just for basic needs and that was before the COVID-19 outbreak. Now he says there are 7 million unemployed young people, and everyone has had to deal with high prices and runaway inflation. Gharayi Moghadam also said that the uprisings in both December 2017 and November 2019 involved people who had never questioned the regime before. Now there are 13-14 million who live on the outskirts of cities and if they join an uprising, they have nothing to lose because some of these people face starvation every day.
The remarkable change in tone demonstrates that dissatisfaction with the Iranian regime is so universal that the mullahs are no longer able to censor their own media from broadcasting it. https://t.co/XvJfitgV0P#Iran #Iranian #Covid_19 #MEK @USAdarFarsi pic.twitter.com/T8sEGigFmt

While the 2018 uprising was taking place, the supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, named the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) as the chief protagonists, signing a death sentence on anyone who might have been associated with the organization.
The atmosphere across the country has begun to terrify the ruling mullahs. One of the regime’s political analysts has warned recently that as the gap between the rich and poor grows the people will start to build a movement that is even stronger than the Shah’s old palace and they will use this strength to set the nation on fire.
An article in Asr-e Iran reported the increase in concern by regime officials as to the rise in the explosive potential of Iran’s youth. The report said if the status quo prevails in the way it is at the moment, the youth will rise up like an explosion and overthrow the regime and all it stands for.
Political & economic experts of the regime in #Iran are constantly asking the question: To what extent the Iranian society can tolerate this? Many warn an uprising at the scale of the Dec 2017 & Nov 2019 unrests—or maybe bigger—is looming on the horizon.https://t.co/xtAAYEVXt9

This can be shown by a previous uprising such as the November 2019 nationwide protests, which began after the regime suddenly imposed a 300 percent hike on the price of gasoline. According to The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), there have been at least 1500 killed in November 2019 uprising in Iran. MEK Iran also released the names of 504 slain protesters.
(PMOI / MEK Iran) revealed there have been 400 killed in Tehran Province, another 320 in Kermanshah, 270 in Fars, 240 in Khuzestan, 120 in Isfahan, and 100 in Alborz (Karaj).
The state-run daily Ebtekar, linked to the President, Hassan Rouhani, said that because Rouhani is distancing himself from the people and has taken no notice from his advisers that this will break any trust the people have with the regime so that more protests against the regime are likely to take place. It reported that today the Iranian people have had to bear the brunt of poverty and repression as well as COVID-19. At the same time, the socio-economic gap between people has never been greater. It also says that the regime’s suppressive order continues to protect the fascist regime by handing out death penalties to anyone who does not support it.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI): The tragic coronavirus pandemic has cast a dark shadow over our nation for the past seven months. Khamenei, Rouhani, and the gangs ruling our country do not spend even a small portion of the hundreds of billions of dollars they have usurped from our nation.

The people of Iran know that without a doubt their problems will only be solved if the religious dictatorship is overthrown for good. They now know that the regime will never change and they have no choice but to take action themselves before it is too late.
