Iran’s nationwide uprising is marking a major milestone of 60 days on Monday, following a day of protests by university students in many colleges across the country. These protests erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman arrested by morality police in Tehran on September 13 for allegedly violating the country’s strict dress code for women, and they have since then spread to at least 218 cities.
According to the most recent reports from Tehran, locals gathered to mark the third day since Yalda Agha-murder. She died mysteriously while being held in the regime’s notorious Qarchak Prison. Locals were seen chanting “Death to the dictator!” and continuing the nationwide protests at the capital’s Valiasr Crossroads Metro Station. “Khamenei is a murderer!” they chanted in the Sa’adatabad district.
Protesters were seen setting fire to a statue of former IRGC Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani in Aligudarz, Lorestan Province, western Iran. High school students in Rasht and Tehran also chanted anti-regime slogans.
Students at the Sharif University of Technology in Tehran and Qazvin University of Medical Sciences held a protest rally early Monday morning, protesting the regime’s cruelty and crackdown, particularly on college students across the country.

“From Bloody November to the spring of the democratic revolution, the glorious movement for freedom of the Iranian people forges ahead,” she tweeted. “[The current] uprising, which began in September, attests to the deep roots of the Iranian people’s freedom movement, highlighting the magnificence of this movement and its unmistakable victory. The protests have far more power than the forces of repression,” the NCRI President-elect emphasized.
“Parents who have turned the grief and pain of losing their loved ones into a force of perseverance, their fiery remarks inspire thousands of girls and boys to keep fighting,” Mrs. Rajavi added.
In solidarity with their compatriots protesting throughout Iran, freedom-loving Iranians and MEK supporters are continuing photo exhibitions, rallies, and gatherings in European locations such as Stockholm and Gothenburg, Cologne, Oslo, Paris, and Vienna. Such gatherings and exhibitions are scenes of Iranian ex-pats exchanging information about the latest protests in Iran, the regime’s atrocities, and the Iranian people’s determination to carry on with the revolution in order to destabilize the mullahs’ dictatorship.
