Another day of Iran protests by farmers in Isfahan

23

On Wednesday, April 11, Iranian farmers and local people held a demonstration in Isfahan, central Iran.

A mother in the demonstration shouted during the demonstration that was against lack of water:

“Until water flows in the river we will not go home”.

Local merchants in the Khorasgan district of Isfahan went on a general strike on Wednesday in support of the protesting farmers.

The protest is related to the re-routing of the Zayanderud River by the authorities, which has destroyed the regional agriculture.

The regime’s suppressive forces tried in vain to disperse the crowds. The protesters chanted slurs at a police commander who pleaded with people over the megaphone to leave the site of the rally.

Among the protesters’ chants were:

“Leave Syria alone, think of us instead”.

“Today’s a day of mourning”.

“Our enemy is right here, even though they claim it is America”.

“Farmers are prepared to die, but they will not accept dishonor”.

A separate anti-regime protest took place on Wednesday in Ziar, central Iran, after a local resident identified only as Ismail was arrested by the regime during the farmers’ protest in nearby Isfahan. The protesters in Ziar lit tires in the middle of the streets and chanted slogans including:

“Farmers’ rights have been betrayed for 18 years.”

“Cannons, machine guns and tanks are no longer effective; shameless police”.

In another development, looted victims of government scam institutions in various cities, including Tehran, Rasht, Ahvaz, Mashhad, Kerman, and Ardebil, protested.

In Tehran, protesters gathered in front of the regime’s parliament, and chanted

“Death to Saif (head of the central bank); Saif betrays, the government supports; May we never accept humiliation; Caspian has stolen, the government has supported.”

The security forces and the police prevented the spread of this protest movement by arresting a number of protesters and collecting their banners.

The looted members of the Arman Vahdat Institute in Ahvaz also gathered in front of the branch of this institute. They chanted:

“Death to Rouhani; bankrupt government is sitting on our money; one less embezzlement and our problems are solved.”

The looted people of the Caspian Institute in Rasht that consisted of mainly women, demonstrated chanting the slogans of:

“Caspian has stolen, the government has supported; I will not leave until I get my right; this shameless government, is the cause of the nation’s poverty.”

The looted people in Parsabad, Moghan (Ardebil province), protested at the site of the Caspian Institute. One of the looted people’s health deteriorated due to the severity of pressures on him and was transferred to the hospital.

“We have been betrayed, our trust has been violated.”

“As long as our money is in the air, it’s just the same every day; police be alert, we are victims not thugs; Police, be ashamed, be ashamed!”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the deprived farmers and the people of Isfahan and the looted people in various cities of the country who, despite the widespread efforts of the repressive forces, continue to protest, and called on the public, especially the youth, to support them. She said poverty, corruption and the plundering of the people’s capital would only disappear by overthrowing the Valayat-e faqih regime and the establishment of democracy and the rule of the people.
