World Should Stand With Iranian People Tuesday, June 5, marked the 15th consecutive day of the nationwide truck driver’s strike in Iran, with tens of thousands of heavy vehicles drivers taking part in almost 300 cities across the country.
The video footage and photos of the strike, which are being widely circulated on social media, show that the protest – part of the people’s uprising – is both incredibly vast and highly organized. This means major problems for the Regime, as its far easier to quash a localized protest with little organizational structure.
As the strikes continue, truckers from across the world are expressing their solidarity with the striking Iranians, through messages on social media and in letters to government officials. This not only takes a stand in favor of the Iranian people, but also against the corrupt Regime.
Secret Obama-era permit let Iran convert funds to dollars
Those assurances notwithstanding, the Obama administration secretly issued a license to let Iran sidestep U.S. sanctions for the brief moment required to convert the funds through an American bank, an investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday showed. The plan failed when two U.S. banks refused to participate. Yet two years later, the revelation is re-igniting the bitter debate over the nuclear deal and whether former President Barack Obama was too eager to grant concessions to Tehran. “The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who chairs the Senate panel that conducted the investigation
Editorial: Khamenei’s Nuclear Dilemma
Ali Khamenei’s remarks came nearly four weeks after President Trump announced that the US would no longer be a party to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and after European leaders were unable to offer the regime guarantees that US sanctions would not affect their trade relations. The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran must make the necessary arrangements to reach 190,000 SWU in the framework provided by the JCPOA and must begin some other preparations that the honorable president has ordered beginning tomorrow,” he said.
- Now is the time to call the regime’s bluff and hold it accountable for its actions in the region.• Now is the time to end the silence on the systematic human rights violations in Iran and the crimes committed by the regime against the Iranian people.

We’re watching reports that #Iran plans to increase its enrichment capacity. We won’t allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Iran is aware of our resolve. It’s another example of Iran foolishly squandering its resources. It should surprise no one if protests in Iran continue. https://twitter.com/SecPompeo
Iran: More voices expressing concerns over growing protests
With each passing day, more voices are heard inside the Iranian regime expressing concerns over “growing public dissent” and increasing protests.Warnings about a growing scope of unrest, people losing their patience, the regime becoming besieged like never before and a domino effect taking its toll, are apparently falling on deaf ears.Some, however, believe Iranian regime officials are too busy stealing the people’s money. This is the fate of all dictators in history, pressing the gas pedal for further domestic crackdown to such a limit that throws their entire apparatus overboard
There is no capacity in the Iranian regime to take steps and realize actual change.More concerns will be voiced. More neglection will come. And at the end of the day, the people will overcome.
