Hundreds Of Iranians Protest High Prices In Northeastern City Of Mashhad

Iran protests

One of the major centers of protest was in the western Iranian city of Kermanshah where in addition to high prices and unemployment, people have recently suffered a devastating natural disaster.

Thousands of Iranians took to the streets throughout the country on Thursday to protest against the deteriorating economic situation.

The protests have continued even as anti-riot units of the State Security Forces were stationed extensively throughout the city.

"If the security and law enforcement agencies leave the rioters to themselves, enemies will publish films and pictures in their media and say that the Islamic Republic system has lost its revolutionary base in Mashhad", the state news agency IRNA quoted Alamolhoda as saying.

Chants of "death to Rouhani", "death to the dictator" were universal in all the cities.

Multiple victims were reportedly transported to a hospital, but their conditions or the number of people remains unconfirmed. People were seen evacuating and running from the unmarked building that houses law offices.

"Some people had come to express their demands, but suddenly, in a crowd of hundreds, a small group that did not exceed 50 shouted deviant and horrendous slogans such as 'Let go of Palestine, ' 'Not Gaza, not Lebanon, I'd give my life (only) for Iran, '" Alamolhoda said.

Similarly, Iran's revolutionary court head, Hossein Heidari was quoted by Fars as saying: "We consider a protest to be the people's right but if some people want to abuse these emotions and ride this wave, we won't wait and will confront them".

Iranian news agencies said small protests Friday in Tehran and the western quake -shaken city of Kermanshah were dispersed by police, with apparently scattered arrests.

"Iran's leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos".

A rally is also scheduled planned for tomorrow in Tehran to mark the anniversary of massive government-sponsored demonstrations in December of 2009 that followed a crackdown and months of unrest after the contentious presidential elections in June of that year.

These usually dissipate within two days and are considered a normal reaction to being injected with latent strains of the virus. According to a recent survey by CityMD, over half of millenials did not plan to get a vaccine during last year's flu season.

Videos posted online showed a crowd in Mashhad chanting "death to Rouhani" and "death to the dictator", and police using water cannon to disperse it. "Forget Syria, think of us" read the protesters' banners. "They think they will hurt the government by doing so", he warned.

President Rouhani promised that the deal he signed with world powers in 2015, which saw Iran limit its nuclear activities in return for the lifting of global sanctions, would boost economic growth.

Several provinces this week reported the price of eggs had risen by up to 50 percent, according to the semi-official Iranian Students News Agency.

Out of a total Iranian population of 80 million, some 3.2 million are jobless, according to official data.
