Ashura anti government demonstration- no. 1

Youth lash back at 5 security force agents in Shar e Ray distric

During the mourning rituals of Tassoua and Ashura (the mourning days to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hossein) the residents of Tehran cried their abhorrence toward the velayat-e faqih regime in its totality by chanting anti-government slogans and writing graffiti as well as chanting ‘Allah-o Akbar’ on the roofs.

The Iranian regime has stepped up control in mosques and places of worship as the anniversary of a massive protest in 2009 approaches, according to obtained reports from inside Iran.

The reports indicate that as the anniversary of the December 27 Ashura protests nears, the clerical regime’s agents have become more sensitive towards activities of youths and their visits to mosques and places of worship.

Following the student protests on the anniversary of the arrest of a student and on December 7, more than 30 students at Tehran’s Khajeh Nasir Tousi have been summoned for interrogation by the Iranian regime’s intelligence ministry office on campus (Herasat).

According to the Daneshjou News, during the illegal interrogations, the students were insulted by the director of Herasat, Isa Abbasi, and threatened with expulsion and arrest.

Futile attempt to blame the regime’s international failures on Mottaki in face of the Iranian Resistance

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described sudden dismissal of the regime’s foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, by Ahmadinejad as sign of Ali Khamenei’s loss of hegemony and clout, heightening of internal rift and the result of tremor within the clerical regime in its faltering state.

An official of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) referred to the post-June-2009 anti-regime uprisings by the Iranian people on Thursday and said, “A year after the sedition movement [protests] and the mayhem caused in the country, the ashes of sedition are still smoldering.”

A senior commander of the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) warned on Thursday that the paramilitary Bassij Force is prepared to counteract popular protests after the implementation of a regime plan to lift subsidies, according to the state-run Fars News agency.

Tehran residents are blaming the Iranian regime’s production of poor-quality petrol for the serious air pollution affecting Iran’s capital city, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

In an emergency plan, the Iranian regime “converted six petrochemical plants to produce petrol, in spite of warnings by oil experts that the poor-quality product would be too costly and ran the risk of damaging people’s health and cars,” the paper said.

Students at the University of Tehran staged a gathering in one of the campus buildings, chanting “shame, shame, this worthless government is a shame,” “we die, we die, but we will not succumb to disgrace,” “death to dictator,” “Bassiji, get lost,” and “with God’s help victory is near, death to this deceptive government.”

The commander of the Iranian regime’s suppressive State Security Forces (SSF) has said that the growth of satellite networks represents a real threat to the clerical regime, effectively suggesting that the regime will fall if the trend continues.

Esmail Ahmadi Moqaddam said, “These satellite networks want to change our culture, and when the effects of decay and implosion spread throughout the country, we will then be attacked militarily.”

Rahim Safavi, the Iranian regime Supreme Leader’s military advisor, pointed to the regime’s attempts to export its model of dictatorship to Iraq, and said, “Following the formation of the [paramilitary] Bassij and the thinking of Bassij in Iran, this model should be established in Iraq.”
