Organizing the people in the November 2019 protests; The participation of the Velayat-e-Faqih regime(Velayat-e-Faqih is the rule of the clergy over the state and simply is the religious dictatorship. It was started by Ruhollah Khomeini in Iran in 1979 after the fall of the monarchy)and the IRGC in suppressing the November 2019 protests showed that they had lined up in full force against the Iranian people for the war.

On the other side, Iranian people showed that they are standing in front of the regime’s integrity and the IRGC.

The Role of Iranian Women in the November 2019 Iran Protests

There is no doubt that women have been doubly oppressed from the beginning under the religious dictatorship of the mullahs in Iran. There is also no doubt that this oppression manifests itself over time. The leading role of women in the November 2019 protests confirmed this important role.

The‌ State-run Fars News Agency, affiliated with the IRGC, wrote about women taking the lead in the protests: “In many places, especially on the outskirts of Tehran, women apparently in their 30s and 35s have a special role to play in leading the unrest.”

The IRGC‘s “Javan” newspaper also wrote: “Special work was defined for women. They played a key role both in attacking the “sisters’ mobilization centers” (Basijies women) and in motivating the youth. Although no casualties were reported. “But the style of employing women was similar to the MEK/PMOI‘s women’s maneuvers.”

Confession to the organized protests in November 2019

“The rioters were an organized group,” Saffar Harandi said of the protests. “They were doing the same thing all over the country.”

Mohammad Taghi Shahcheraghi, the commander of the Qom IRGC, acknowledged that the protests were organized and stated: “The role of the Mojahedin -e- Khalq(MEK) in the recent events in the country was very significant. “In a way that caused widespread destruction with management and influence in some cities.”

“Over the past two years, the MEK has been training and directing various groups and circles in the protests,” said Naqvi Hosseini, then spokesman for the Security Commission of the Majlis.

The vastness of the November 2019 protests

Ali Fadavi; The deputy commander of the IRGC, said about the Vastness and hatred of the people in these protests: “This (demonstration) was while on the first day, 28 provinces and 100 neighborhoods and cities were involved in this issue. I talked to the IRGC commanders in some cities, and at times reminded me of Karbala IV. “We fought for 48 hours.”

Yadollah Jawani; The political deputy of the IRGC, also said about the scale of the people’s demonstrations: “These events were unique in their kind during the forty years of the Islamic Revolution.”

Salar Abnoosh; The commander of the Basij operation, described the November 2009 protests as a “full-scale world war.” Who “covered the whole country at once” and emphasized that “only God saved us.”

All-round youth confrontation with the IRGC

On November 21, 2019, the “Javan” IRGC’s newspaper wrote about the intensity of the November 2019 protests: “Strange hostilities that we witnessed with this intensity and concentration not in 1999, not in 2009, and basically in no other sensitive and insensitive moment! Really, what tribe were we really facing these days?! When and where were they trained?! From which holes did they penetrate?! “And how did they emerge from the floor of our streets in new clothes?”

Political-social effects of the November 2019 protests

The massacre perpetrated by the IRGC during the November 2019 protests, the most massive demonstrations of the Iranian people since the 1979 revolution, had far-reaching political and social consequences. These consequences include the following:

Due to the blind and ruthless killing of all classes and the use of massacres and mass killings by Khamenei’s direct order and by the IRGC, any ambiguity about the bloody nature of Velayat-e Faqih and the IRGC became clear to the Iranian people.

Fear and terror were the main elements of the regime’s internal strategy and the IRGC to control society. In these protests, it was set aside and became a minor element in the Iranian people’s struggles against the IRGC and Velayat-e Faqih(Religious Dictatorship).

Quality of protests

The quality and quantity of these protests, beyond all previous protests and their continuation, showed that the Iranian people had tightened their belt of effort to change the regime of Velayat-e Faqih, and the protests will not stop.

Some individuals and groups who claimed to be compromising and cooperating with a part of the IRGC withdrew from the Iranian people’s struggles.

The slogan “Death to the oppressor, whether Shah or leader”, which was chanted in 2019, was a denial of two previous authoritarian regimes in Iran.

The attack on the seminaries and offices and houses of the “Friday Prayer Imams” of the regime also invalidated the chaffy contradiction between “religion and non-religion” that main winner of which was the Velayat-e-Faqih  regime, which has been oppressing the Iranian people for more than four decades with the claim of Islam. The same slogan, ” They used Islam to make the people miserable and humiliated.”

The short period between the two major protests in 2018 and 2019 showed that the Velayat-e-Faqih regime is in the final stages of its life and cannot solve the political, social, and economic problems of the Iranian people and it must be removed according to the will of the Iranian people.
