Iran rises up. Hail to the brave people of Tehran, Isfahan, Mashhad, Ahvaz, Shadegan, Kermanshah, Sanandaj, Karaj, Sari, Babol, Amol, Semnan, Shahroud, Tabriz, Qazvin, Zanjan, Shiraz, Urmia, Gorgan & Arak, who have heralded dawn of a Free Iran with chants of “death to Khamenei.

Mr. Shahin Ghobadi, Spokesman People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), said about the second day of demonstrations by the Iranian people:

The protest by thousands of Iranians in Tehran and a number of other cities last night and today, in which people were chanting slogans like ‘Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, resign, resign,’ makes it palpably clear that the Iranian people demand the mullahs’ overthrow.
The protesters openly blamed and challenged the IRGC, the regime’s power base for decades. This marks vividly indicated a new phase of more defiance in Iran as the regime has become much weaker. In chanting against the Shah’s regime and the current religious fascism, the protesters showed that they reject despotism in any shape and form and democracy is the only way forward.
The protests undercut the regime’s propaganda subsequent to the termination of Qassem Soleimani. Not only the protesters tore down his posters in Tehran and elsewhere, they also chanted “Soleimani is a murderer, so is his leader (Ali Khamenei).” They condemned the shooting down of the Ukrainian airliner and lashed out at the regime for lying about it.
In the aftermath of the November anti-regime protests in 191 cities throughout Iran in which the regime killed more than 1,500 protesters, wounded 4,000 and arrested 12,000, the tide has turned against the regime.

With the advent of the third decade of the 21st Century, the world is looking with hope at the uprising in Iran and the bright prospects of a free and democratic Iran.
