Safar Harandi, a member of Iran’s Expediency Council, in an interview on state-run television TV2 channel about the Iran protests and their organized nature, said: “The rioters were an organized group, doing the same thing across the country.”
Reporter: “We are seeing behavior that we have seen less of in Iran; I am not saying it was never so, but to the extent that it was, I want to see what your opinion is? what is your analysis? What coordinates have these features, the events which have happened in Iran’s different cities?”
Safar Harandi: “These are an organized group. I don't mean to say that it was absolutely organized, but since what you just said around the country, for example, what it was like to do the same thing in different cities suggests that there is some sort of organization.
“Worst of all, attacking the military and law enforcement centers which is a red line around the world, when being attacked, says it will mean continuing chaos - access to guns and attacking the lives of other people.”
Ali Akbari, a member of the Iranian parliament, confessed to earlier planning and organizing by the rebel youth and said: “The maximum damage and insecurity in the shortest time is indicative of previous and organized planning. Security and police forces were taken aback.”
He added: “The sudden decision of the Heads of State to raise the price of gasoline and keep MPs and elites out of this important decision cannot be justified.”
“Legal protests are the right of the people, but it remains to be claimed that unfortunately, the accumulated peaceful demands of the people with a wave of disruptions to the security of the country caused financial losses to the compatriots and the destruction of public property.”
The maximum damage and insecurity in the shortest time are indicative of a well-planned and organized plan, and surprisingly, police and security forces are taken aback by the government's upholding of civil protests and the legitimate rights of the people and the fulfillment of the promises made.
Some of the protesters are youths and teenagers who were impressed and thrilled to take part in the Iran protests.
