Iran: Khamenei and His Deadlock in the Farce Parliamentary Elections

Being under tremendous pressure both in-home and abroad, the Iranian regime needs to hold its sham parliamentary elections on February 21, to portray a so-called “democratic” image. As the date closes in, fearing an unprecedented boycott, the regime’s officials continue pleading for people’s participation.

Protest Gathering by Workers

On Saturday, February 8th, 2020, workers of the Haft-Tappeh Factory, protested against a lack of payment of their insurance. The fees are supposed to be paid to the Social Security Dept by their employers. However, the company has refused to pay the insurance fees, leaving the workers without insurance.

Last year, the repressive Iranian regime brutally suppressed a month-long protest by Haft-Tappeh workers who were demanding their delayed salaries.

NEWS ON IRAN
LAUNCHING A SATELLITE OR TESTING BALLISTIC MISSILE PROGRAMS?
The Iranian regime’s attempt to “launch a satellite” was postponed today, for what has been explained are technical reasons.

“Iran will launch a satellite on Sunday,” a government minister said, as part of a fledgling program, but the United States says it is a cover for ballistic missile development.

Previously the Iranian regime’s Communications Technology Minister, Azari-Jahromi, had announced that the “Zafar” Satellite will be launched and placed in orbit on Sunday February 9th, 2020. The Iranian regime’s two last attempts to launch a satellite into orbit had failed.

The long-range, “satellite” technology is the same technology used in developing ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

GERMANY WILL NOT SEND A CONGRATULATIONS TELEGRAM TO IRANIAN AUTHORITIES
Following harsh criticisms from the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, for attempting to celebrate the anniversary of the Iranian regime’s foundation, Germany announced “in light of the current developments in Iran in recent months, there will be no telegram from the Federal President this year,” a spokeswoman for the Federal President’s Office said.

Ambassador Richard Grennell told Fox News on Thursday, February 6th, 2020, “Germany has a moral responsibility to say to Iran very firmly and clearly that it is unacceptable to deny basic human rights to your people, or kill protesters in the streets or push gay people off buildings. Celebrating the regime’s ongoing existence sends the opposite message,” the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, told Fox News on Thursday.

 

WHAT ARE THE IRAN PROTESTS OF 2019?
