Iran’s nationwide uprising is witnessing its 195th day on Wednesday following many rallies by teachers across the country on Tuesday. Many cities of Iran saw teachers gather outside their local Education Departments protesting poor economic conditions, low paychecks, and inadequate working conditions. The protesting teachers were demanding the release of their unjustly jailed colleagues.

People throughout the country are specifically holding the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei responsible for their miseries, while also condemning the oppressive the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and paramilitary Basij units, alongside other security units that are on the ground suppressing the peaceful demonstrators.

MEK Resistance Units launched marches in recent days and began chanting anti-regime slogans in Tehran and other cities, including Mashhad, Shiraz, Shahrekord, and Kashan. They’re slogans included:
“Down with Khamenei! Hail to Rajavi!”
“The world should know that Massoud (Rajavi) is our leader. The National Liberation Army of Iran is our final response.”
“Down with oppressors, be it the Shah or [Khamenei]!”
“Freedom will be established with the moto of ‘We can and we must’!”
“Democracy and equality with Maryam Rajavi!”
“No to monarchy! No to [mullahs’ regime]! Democracy and equality!”
“Poverty-Corruption-High prices! We’re going to overthrow the regime!”

MEK Resistance Units also march in the city of Kashan, south-central Iran, while chanting: “We are the MEK and we’re fighting against the mullahs! Down with oppressors, be it the Shah or [Khamenei]!”

Protests in Iran have to this day expanded to at least 282 cities. Over 750 people have been killed and more than 30,000 are arrested by the regime’s forces, according to sources of Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The names of 675 killed protesters have been published by the PMOI/MEK.

Workers of the Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Company in the city of Shush of Khuzestan Province in southwest Iran held a rally on Wednesday protesting their extremely low paychecks determined by the regime’s Supreme Labor Council. These oppressed workers have long been holding rallies, including one on March 25 and another on March 11, protesting the company officials’ refusal to address their demands. These workers have vowed to continue their protests, scheduling their next rally for Thursday, 8:30 am local time.

The protesting workers were chanting:
“Iranian workers, unite, unite!”
“Workers would rather die than live in infamy!”
“Down with oppressors! Hail to workers!”

Pensioners and retirees of the regime’s Social Security Organization in the city of Shushtar in Khuzestan Province, southwest Iran, are protesting high prices, poverty, corruption, inflation, poor living conditions and officials’ refusal to address their demands.

Pensioners and retirees are among the worst-hit segments of Iran’s society. They depend on government stipends to make ends meet, but the regime has refused to increase their pensions in correspondence with growing inflation and the depreciation of the national currency.

The government has long provided many hollow promises of increasing pensions. It was also supposed to settle unpaid pensions remaining from previous years. So far, it has yet to deliver on both demands.

Interestingly, the regime’s own media reported that The Social Security Investment Company (SHASTA), the financial institution that is supposed to fund retirees, has seen a significant increase in its profits in the past years. However, these profits have yet to materialize in the lives of pensioners and retirees.

Teachers and educators in several cities were holding gatherings on Tuesday and protesting poor economic conditions, their low paychecks, and demanding the release of their unjustly jailed colleagues. These rallies were held in the cities of Tabriz, Ardabil, Kermanshah, Baneh, Malayer, Hamadan, Zanjan, Bojnurd, Urmia, and others.

On Tuesday morning, retirees and pensioners of the regime’s Social Security Organization in Ahvaz, southwest Iran, rallied to protest high prices, inflation, low pensions, and other economic woes. Similar protests were held in Ahvaz, the provincial capital of Khuzestan.

Iranian opposition coalition NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi reiterated the determination of the Iranian people to continue their anti-regime campaign and revolution against the mullahs’ regime in its entirety with the objective of establishing freedom, democracy, and human rights in a secular republic across Iran.

“The protestors and rebels of this land are the ones shaping Iran’s destiny. They are determined to defy all dictatorships and coercion, overthrow religious tyranny, and replace it with freedom and emancipation,” the NCRI President-elect underscored.

The protests in Iran began following the death of Mahsa Amini. Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, a 22-year-old woman from the city of Saqqez in Kurdistan Province, western Iran, who traveled to Tehran with her family, was arrested on Tuesday, September 13, at the entry of Haqqani Highway by the regime’s so-called “Guidance Patrol” and transferred to the “Moral Security” agency.

She was brutally beaten by the morality police and died of her wounds in a Tehran hospital on September 16. The event triggered protests that quickly spread across Iran and rekindled the people’s desire to overthrow the regime.
