Speaking at a cabinet meeting at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, US President Donald Trump warning Iran that “Sanctions Are Coming” — explained his conviction that, “Iran is a much different country than when I became president.”, “They’re having riots every week in every country ” he added.
Over the past 12 months, a single week hasn’t passed where some sort of protest and demonstration has not taken place in Iran. From truckers, steel and sugar refinery workers, and farmers to teachers and students, virtually every Iranian group and community has expressed its discontent with the current political structure.
According to Iran News wire report On Wednesday, Jan 1,2019 , 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”. Many farmers have not cultivated their lands for the past few years.
deprived farmers gathered at Khaju Bridge and the Zayandehrood dry riverbed. They demanded their water right and the opening of water flow to Zayandehrood and protested against the failure to implement the deceptive promises of the regime. The protesters, in whom women had a very impressive presence, marched toward Si-o-se Pol (33Pol Bridge) in a siege of repressive forces.
According to NCRI report, A number of protesters prevented the advance of anti-riot forces by sitting down the street. A number of farmers also marched from Khorasgan towards Khaju Bridge. They chanted: Death to the oppressor, Peace be upon the farmer; farmer dies, he does not accept humiliation; victory comes from the God, death to this deceiving government is a deceitful person; Even if we die, we will get our water right; Zayandehrood water is our inalienable right; Our government is our shame; Liar Rouhani, where is our Zayandehrood; No nation has seen this much injustice; Police, beware, we are laborers not mobs; Our shame is our state Radio and TV.
The protest movement of farmers took place while the regime was trying to prevent the demonstration by mobilizing anti-riot guards and scores of plainclothes and other oppressive agents, as well as the deployment of armored vehicles and water cannons. Plainclothes criminals and state security forces attacked protesters, a large number of whom were elderly farmers. The clerical regime had slowed the internet lines in this area to prevent farmers from communicating with each other and seized handsets from protesters.
The repressive agents were trying to prevent farmers’ advance by shooting in the air and arresting a number of them. The people resisted these brutalities and shouted “rapscallion, rapscallion”. They prevented the lectures of one of the regime’s agents who came to the scene to deceive the farmers.
In Tehran, a large group of retirees gathered in front of the regime’s parliament. They chanted: Retiree, stand up, against oppression and discrimination; the government betrays, the parliament protects; we will not rest until we get our rights; no nation has ever seen such a lousy parliament; cry out from this much injustice; they use Islam to suppress people; imprisoned teacher must be freed; political prisoner must be freed; worker, teacher, student, unity, unity; enough oppression, our table is empty; we are all together; inflation, grief, answer Rouhani. At the same time, in Mashhad, the retirees gathered and demanded their rightful claims.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi saluted noble retirees in Tehran, Mashhad and other cities of the country, and the poor and hardworking Isfahan farmers who opposed the regime’s oppression and discrimination, saying that repressive forces are trying in vain to stop these protests by mobilization of suppressive forces and imposing restrictions and arresting protesters. She called on the public, especially women and youth, to support the protests, saying that protests, demonstrations, and the uprising of the various strata of the people along with the resistance units will continue until the final victory.
