NCRI - An Iranian regime’s political analyst acknowledges that Iranian protesters are disappointed in the country’s so-called moderates and disgusted by regime’s president Hassan Rouhani.
In response to Ali Shamkhani, secretary of regime’s Supreme National Security Council, claiming that the country’s ongoing protests are ignited by foreigners, regime’s political expert Sadegh Zibakalam has written a letter, writing “I was surprised by your comments, attributing protests to Saudis. I was not aware that Saudi Arabia is so powerful that it can take thousands of Iranian youth in the country’s small and big cities to the streets. I was however more sorry than surprised by your comments.”

NCRI - Iranian regime’s deputy Labor Minister had said that there are two million hungry people in the country. A really shocking figure, says a regime’s MP.
Member of regime parliament’s Social Affairs Committee believes that with this many people suffering hunger, the total number of country’s deprived people should be much higher.
State-run IRNA news agency has reported on a meeting titled ‘The 2018 Budget: will it increase or reduce poverty?’, in which regime’s deputy Labor and Social Welfare Minister Ahmad Maydari said “according to domestic and international estimates, between two to four percent of Iranian people suffer extreme poverty, meaning they can’t afford to feed themselves, something also referred to as violent poverty.”
Iran Uprising - No. 38
On Friday, January 5, on the ninth day of the uprising in Iran, in spite of a massive security presence and massive presence of repressive forces, people in many cities rallied.
In Tehran, the repressive forces from the anti-riot to the Basijis, the Revolutionary Guards and plainclothes were present in the central parts of the city on foot and mounted. They shot and injured several young people at the Revolution Square and arrested a number of people.
A.P. TEHRAN, Iran – Iranian media is reporting that a magnitude 5.1 earthquake has jolted the country's western province of Kermanshah.
Semi-official ISNA news agency says the temblor rocked the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e Zahab, about 520 kilometers, or 320 miles, west of Tehran on Saturday.
If you persist, the world will stand with you and on your side.
Ending the silence on Iran and shattering a 4-decade-old barrier of appeasement of the regime, the UN Security Council’s meeting on Iran is a product of the Iranian people’s uprising, the sacrifice of its martyrs and the suffering of its captives. The world’s major governments had so far turned a blind eye on brutal suppression of our people and executions of 120,000. Iran’s protesters and youths, however, have in their first step turned the page of the United Nations and Security Council’s history on Iran. This indicates that the young men and women who rose up in the streets of Izeh, Doroud, Tuyserkan, Ghahdarijan, Jouyabad of Isfahan, and 75 other cities can and must turn the darkest page of Iran’s history.
