Protests are continuing in Iran without any perspective of seeing an end and have entered the 38th day. So far protests have erupted in more than 197 cities of Iran’s 31 provinces. The regime has violently cracked down on the protesters.

More than 20,000 has been detained. Iran’s opposition has estimated that the regime has killed more than 400 people including children. Amnesty International reported that “at least 23 children have been unlawfully killed by the security forces during the nationwide protests in Iran.”

It added that “most of the children were fatally shot with live ammunition fired by security forces.”

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) has published the names of 245 people killed by the regime, including the names of 113 Baluch citizens.

The detainees’ relatives in Evin Prison continue to protest in front of the prison. They say that Evin’s wounded have not been treated yet, and no care is being taken for them. Prisoners in Ward 8 are not allowed to have breaks and are not allowed to buy from the prison store.

Prisoners transferred from Evin to Gohardasht are experiencing the same conditions. They have been left without access to facilities, stores, and canteens, and without essential medicines for the wounded and the sick.

According to reports, the jails of the regime are now full of prisoners, so they use houses and basements to detain protesters. They torture the detainees mentally, physically, or a combination of the two.

Yesterday the regime showed its cruelty and enmity with the protesting people and announced the death sentence for Abbas Darees, one of the detainees of the November 2019 protests. The court of Mahshahr charged him with moharebeh (waging war against God).

While announcing this news on her Instagram page, Ferishte Tabanian, the defense lawyer of Mohsen and Abbas Darees, stated that Mohsen Darees, the brother of Abbas Drees, was acquitted of the charges.

Despite such actions by the regime, the face of the protests inside Iran is now taking a more radical direction. The people are now reacting more militarized which is the natural response of the people to the regime’s heavy crackdown. The seed of people’s anger has now grown roots and is now anchored in society.

Yesterday protests erupted across the globe in solidarity with the Iranian people, who are risking their lives to overthrow the regime. Chanting crowds marched in the streets of Berlin, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and many other cities.

In her latest tweet Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said: “all sectors of Iranian society, including university and high school students, workers, and bazaar merchants rose up and filled the Iranian political scene in Iran and abroad with cries of ‘Death to Khamenei.’

“The people of Iran again showed that they want to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and establish a democratic republic.”
