In the past days, Iran witnessed major protests mainly in the cities of Isfahan and Shahr-e Kurd. The people of these two cities are demanding their water rights, something that has been taken from them by the regime and its corrupt IRGC, which has redirected many rivers to support its interests. For years there has been no will to resolve the problems of one of the most important rivers of Iran the Zayaneh Rud River.
This has led to extreme drought and catastrophic subsidence in most cities of the country and Isfahan is the most hurt city of the country, making many parts of the city uninhabitable.
Despite the regime’s repression, attacks and arrests, the people have decided to continue their protests as we have witnessed it today. Below is a summary of the protests over the past two days which will be updated.
