Highlights of the nationwide Iran protests
Twenty-seven days have passed since the nationwide Iran protests began for regime change. A major gasoline price hike triggered protests on November 15. But the protests quickly turned political and targeted the entirety of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, led by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
The protesters are demanding the overthrow of the regime with all its factions and the corrupt repressive forces, including the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). On day 23 of the protests, reports by the network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), also known as the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), inside Iran indicate demonstrations have taken place in more than 190 cities. More than 1,000 protesters have been killed, 4,000 wounded and 12,000 arrested during the Iran protests.
