Despite the Iranian regime's oppressive measures, propaganda, and death threats against protesters, the revolution engulfs more strata.

On Monday, November 28, 2022, college students, truckers, steel workers, automaking factory employees, and merchants continued the nationwide strike across Iran.

Reports tallied by Iran News Update indicate strikes, protests, and anti-regime activities resumed in dozens of cities, including: Tehran, Isfahan, Shahreza, Salafchegan, Sabzevar, Karaj, Asaluyeh, Hamedan, Sanandaj, Khorramabad, Kermanshah, Asadabad, Amol, Kashan, Yazd, Bushehr, and Mahabad.

“The uprising that started in September attests to the deep roots of the Iranian people’s movement for freedom. It brings to light the magnificence of this movement and its definitive victory,” said Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. “The power of the protesters is far greater than the forces of repression.”

November 28 marked the 74th day of anti-regime protests in Iran. The demonstrations began following the heinous murder of Mahsa Amini, 22, in police custody. However, it immediately turned into a revolution against the entire theocratic regime.

According to the Iranian opposition Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI), the protests have extended to 277 cities. The regime has killed more than 660 citizens, injured tens of thousands, and detained over 30,000. The MEK has published the names of 540 killed protesters.
