The President-elect of the NCRI, Maryam Rajavi: Iran Rises Up in Revolt

Supporting the arisen people, the rebellious youths and resistance units in Iran is a patriotic duty

The Velayat-e Faqih religious dictatorship has reached the end of the line. Today, the cries of the people of Iran can be heard from the streets of Tehran, Isfahan, Kamyaran, Sirjan, Behbahan, Shiraz, Marivan, Bukan, Karaj, Khorramshahr and Mahshahr. They are crying out, “Dictator, shame on you, let go of our country.” They are chanting, “the mullahs must get lost.” Therefore,

1. I urge my fellow compatriots to actively participate in the memorial services of martyrs, everywhere, in any form and to any possible extent.
2. Supporting the arisen people, the rebellious youths and resistance units is a patriotic duty.
3. Do not forget to attend to the wounded, dress their wounds, and help the families who have lost their guardians.
4. Protests and strikes at every possible time and place are essential for the continuation and expansion of the uprising.
5. The enemy is mobilizing all its forces, heads of branches and clerics to launch a counter attack, to terrorize the public and hold counter demonstrations. But these are no longer effective. Do not fear their tricks and bellows. National solidarity and cooperation are the best response.
6. World governments and the international community must set aside all considerations and reservations about the regime. They should demand immediate halt to the killings and arrests. If the regime does not comply, they must readily pull the trigger of UN Security Council sanctions. The UNSC must declare the regime’s leaders as criminals committing crimes against humanity. They must face justice for this massive suppression and bloodshed. The international community must strongly condemn the mullahs’ terrorism on the internet and assist the people of Iran in circumventing this inhuman blockade.
7. The clerical regime is making all its effort and using all its means to conceal the actual death tolls. The United Nations must immediately dispatch investigative missions to Iran to evaluate the number of those killed, injured and imprisoned.

According to a newspaper linked to the IRGC, during this latest round of protests and uprising, protesters attacking regime’s sensitive military and security sites, Dozens of police stations, IRGC and Basij bases have been attacked using firearms and a variety of other weapons.

“The protesters are obviously trained and are using specific tools in their attacks. They are trained in how to disable security cameras around intersections, banks, and retail stores. They are organized in teams and are not fixed to a specific location, thus wearing out the security units with their constant movements”, the newspaper piece adds.

Women are playing a key role in attacks targeting the women’s Basij bases and encouraging youths in these protests, according to the state-run Fars news agency. Particularly in Tehran, women of 30 to 35 years of age are playing special roles as leaders of these protests. “These women are each pursuing different and coordinated objectives.
