On Thursday, the 112th day of Iran’s nationwide uprising, the regime’s crackdown machine increased its efforts to suppress dissidents. The regime as a whole is desperate to put an end to the nationwide uprising, but the Iranian people are determined to protest against the regime as a whole.
According to reports from across the country on Thursday, people have been holding ceremonies in memory of protesters killed by the mullahs’ regime. People were seen chanting anti-regime slogans and protesting the mullahs’ dictatorship in the cities of Mahabad, Sanandaj, Izeh, Karaj, Ilam, Ashkzezar in Yazd Province, and Kangavar.
Protesters gathered in Izeh on the 40th anniversary of the murder of Hamed Salahshour by regime security forces. Protesters were heard yelling, “This is the year Seyed Ali (Khamenei) is deposed!”
A similar gathering was reported in Sanandaj, where locals gathered at Mohammad Shariati’s grave today to commemorate his birthday and condemn the mullahs’ regime for atrocities against the Iranian people.
Today is also Mohsen Ghaysari’s birthday, a local who was killed by regime security forces. Locals in the city of Ilam gathered to protest the regime of the mullahs.
Locals in Mahabad gathered to mark the 40th anniversary of Suresh Niknam’s murder by regime security forces, emphasizing that “martyrs don’t die!”
