The protests in Iran will continue as long as the demands of the people are not satisfied. The people’s main demands are not simple reform but fundamental regime change. Iran’s society is now fighting for its freedom for more than 130 years.
Thus, it should be considered that the next revolution in the country is a sequence of the people’s past rebellions against dictatorships ruling over the country with brutality and human rights discrimination. Since September 17 when the protests started, they have spread across the country, and have engulfed the entire nation, despite the regime’s heavy crackdown.
Even if the regime can silence people and stop their protests, these protests have deeply changed society. With the development of the protests, the political consciousness of the people will grow which is a direct threat to the regime.
This can be seen in the speeches of the head of the regime’s Revolutionary Guard Mohsen Salami, who last Saturday threatened the people to stop their protests. In his speech, he asked frustrated people what they wanted from the regime. This shows clearly that the regime is in a state of weakness.
Yesterday, once again he took the stage on the state-TV, while expressing his frustration about the internet and foreign media he said that these are even more dangerous than the atomic bombs that fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Then he begged the country’s youths that if they are listening to him, they should not fall into the trap of the internet and the international media, because they are deterring them from the right way, which he considers the regime’s path.
Finally, he added: “We request our young people to look at the issues realistically and not emotionally. There is no system that is more sympathetic to our society than the Islamic system.”
This shows that the regime has failed to stop the protests. A reality that the regime is not considering is that the generations after 1979 are losing more and more common points with it. Therefore, any rollback to the past is not imaginable.
The regime has started trials against the demonstrators. In Tehran alone, around 1,000 people have been charged in connection with the protests. They would be accused of sabotage, attacks against security forces, and destruction of public property.
In the past few days, protests and rallies have again been reported from at least twenty cities and more than fifty universities. The most violent clashes appear to have taken place at the University of Mashhad.
Recently, new slogans have been added to the previously known ones. The demonstrators are now chanting ‘We don’t want either Shah or mullahs, damn the ayatollah’.
Today, Tuesday, November 1, 2022, on the 47th day of the nationwide uprising of the Iranian people, protests, and strikes continue. So far, nationwide demonstrations have been recorded in more than 213 cities with 450 people killed and 25,000 arrests. The names of 307 of the murdered people by the regime’s repressive forces have been announced by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
