Iran: Citizens Take Over Streets in Sistan & Baluchestan, Day 57

On the 57th day of protests, citizens rose up across Iran, particularly in Sistan & Baluchestan province, fiercely responding to autocrats.

On Friday, November 11, 2022, large crowds flooded the streets following the Friday Prayer across Sistan & Baluchestan province. Security forces mercilessly opened fire at citizens in Zahedan, Khash, Saravan, Sarbaz, Iranshahr, Rask, Pishin, etc. However, defiant protesters resisted and pushed back oppressive forces, and took over several Revolutionary Guards bases.

Citizens in Tehran, Khorramabad, and Sardasht commemorated slain protesters and victims of the regime’s atrocities with anti-regime slogans. “Death to Khamenei,” “This is the year of [Khamenei] overthrow,” “Death to the dictator,” and “Swearing the martyrs’ blood, we resist to the end,” citizens chanted.

November 11 marked the 57th 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 219 cities. The regime has killed more than 550 citizens, injured tens of thousands, and detained over 30,000. The MEK has published the names of 390 killed protesters.
