On Monday, December 26, 2022, citizens continued anti-regime protests and rallies despite the mullahs’ heinous atrocities. Families and relatives of slain citizens, including 10-year-old Kian Pirfalak, Aram Habibi, Peyman Menbari, Danial Pabandi, and Hamed Molaei, turned mourning memorials into revolutionary momentums.
“On the 40th day after security forces killed Kian Pirfalak, the courageous youths and people of Izeh condemned the main culprit behind the coldblooded murder of this innocent child and hundreds of other children and youths in Iran with chants of ‘death to Khamenei,’” said Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
December 26 marked the 102nd 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 280 cities. The regime has killed over 750 citizens, injured tens of thousands, and detained more than 30,000. The MEK has published the names of 601 killed protesters.
