NCRI - The President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, described Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani's chairmanship in the Assembly of Experts as representative of the era of demise for the ruling religious fascism in Iran. Since Rafsanjani does not differ with other regime officials, such as the mullahs' Supreme Leader Khamenei and their president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on fundamental policies like domestic suppression, the atomic weapons program, domination of Iraq, and the export of terror and fundamentalism abroad, conflicts among the various factions in the Assembly of Experts signals the dispersion and divergence that is characteristic of the final phase of the regime.
NCRI - Yesterday, thousands of teachers from various cities filled the surrounding streets to the mullahs' Majlis (parliament) shouting anti-government slogans.
Despite heavy security measures by the State Security Forces (SSF), the protest took place. From 6 a.m. thousands of SSF, security agents, plain-clothes agents, and Bassij Force's club wielders riding cars or on foot imposed an undeclared state of emergency around Majlis. Dozens of busses and vans were waiting outside the building to take away the detainees.
Workers from all over the country turned the anniversary into protest against the Iranian regime
NCRI - Yesterday, on the anniversary of May Day, hundreds of thousands of Iranian workers filled up the nearby streets to Amjadieh Stadium. They were protesting the anti-labor policies of the mullahs' regime. Workers from other parts of the country such as Mashhad, Saveh, Borujerd, Neishabor, and Zanjan joined their fellow labors in the capital.
Today, the Deputy Interior Minister for Political and Security Affairs, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Baqer Zolqader warned workers, students, teachers, and youths against participating in May Day celebrations. His comments come at the time when workers and teachers with the support from the rest of Iranian people are preparing for a major turnout tomorrow.
