The Iranian regime holds parliamentary elections (Majlis) on 21 February 2020. Yet this jumbled appearance of a representative government can deceive the western eye. The clerical regime has a contradictory nature, uncharacteristic of any theocracy that has ruled before it: seemingly holding elections while effectively preserving a monopoly of power through the “supreme leader”. That institution represents the essence of its undemocratic nature.

The Iranian people, particularly young people and women are tearing down and burning images of the regime’s criminal mastermind Qassem Soleimani, who was taken out in a US drone strike on January 3.

Following the acknowledgment made by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Aerospace Force chief Amir Ali Hajizadeh on shooting down the Ukrainian airliner, thousands of Iranians in Tehran and a number of other cities protested against the Iranian regime leaders by chanting “Down with the dictator!” and “Down with Khamenei!” This is a direct reference to the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei.

According to Iran’s main opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK), at least 1,500 people were killed by the regime’s security forces.

Thursday, January 2, 2020, marks the 49th day since the beginning of Iran’s nationwide protests back in November 2019.

The protests began on Friday, November 15th, when thousands of Iranians took to the streets in response to the regime’s announcement of a 300 percent gasoline price hike. Security forces opened fire on protesters to avoid the mullahs’ immediate downfall.

The Qods Force is created for extra-territorial terrorist operations and Qassem Soleimani is the head of this terrorist organization.
