FAIL: Counter-Demonstrations by Iranian Mullahs
I received this message from the NRCI (Iranian Resistance)
Failure of the mullahs’ counter-demonstration
Continuation of uprising in Tehran and other cities along with clashes with repressive forces
On Wednesday, January 3, despite the scandalous attempt of the regime to launch counter-demonstrations in some cities, the people in different cities came to the streets again on the seventh day of the uprising to cry their hatred of the ominous regime of mullahs.
For video of Tehran, go here.
In Tehran, in spite of the intensive presence of repressive forces, including police and intelligence forces, IRGC, Bassij, plainclothes and riot police and motorcyclist mercenaries, various parts of Tehran were host to demonstrations and confrontation of angry youths with repressive forces. In the streets of northern Kargar and Rustam, a severe conflict broke out between the people and the riot police.
In Enqelab Square, the riot police attacked the people who were chanting “Khamenei, shame on your deception”, “Death to the dictator” and “we die, but we take Iran back”; and a violent clash broke out between the criminal riot police and the people. Some young people were injured and harmed in these clashes, but others replaced them.
In Gandhi Street it is not possible to move to Enqelab Square due to heavy traffic and the people are rallying toward Enqelab Square chanting “Death to the dictator”. In the Jomhouri Ave. the people are demonstrating. In Valiasr Ave. the people chanted “I’ll kill whoever killed my brother” and clashed with the riot police.
In Kargar Ave. the crowd are rallying chanting “Death to the Dictator”, “I’ll kill whoever killed my brother”, “Death to Khamenei” and “We shall fight, we shall die, we shall take Iran back.” In the Keshavarz Boulevard too people rallied.
The clerical regime has installed shotguns on the roof of government buildings in the streets surrounding Enqelab Square.
In yet another event, the families of detainees in Tehran gathered in front of the Evin Prison today. According to the regime, 450 people were arrested in Tehran only in days December 30 till January 1st.
In fear of spread of the demonstration in Tehran, the mullahs’ regime has imposed a heavy filtering in the city.
