Regime MPs retreat from their call for executing detained protesters following public anger and the continuation of revolution across Iran.

On Sunday, November 13, 2022, public anger pushed the regime MPs to retreat from calling for executing detained protesters. In a statement, Majlis [Parliament] Public Relations declared that “a letter attributed to 227 MPs to the Judiciary chief regarding the classification of the case of detained citizens under Muharebeh charges is fake.”

University students resumed anti-regime protests in Tehran and Urmia. In the capital, students boycotted classes at the universities of Tehran, Allameh Tabatabaei, Meli [Beheshti], Al-Zahra, Pardis Islamic Azad, and Sooreh.

“Swearing the martyrs’ blood, we resist to the end,” “Students are awake and loathe your tyranny,” “We all rise up if [the regime] seizes even one student,” and “Imprisoned students must be freed,” chanted students. High school students in Tehran and Karaj resumed protests, chanting “Death to the dictator!”

November 13 marked the 59th 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 220 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 402 killed protesters.
