On Saturday, July 24, 2021, The Iranian American Community of North Texas (IACNT), supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization(PMOI/MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI), gathered to support the Khuzestan uprising.
They said: This round of Iran Protests started due to lack of water in Khuzestan, but the real goal is regime change by the people of Iran.
We rallied on July 24 to support the Iranian people in their quest for a free Iran.
When the Iranian regime kills innocent peaceful protesters, we can not be quiet. We must condemn such acts to prevent further bloodshed. UN Human Rights Chief says, “Water is indeed a right.”
The latest round of Iran Protests erupted because people in Khuzestan did not have water. Not only, Iran’s regime did not provide water for them, but killed a few instead.
So far, more than 12 peaceful protesters have been killed by Iran’s security forces in the Protests. Such brutalities must be condemned.
The Iranian people came to the streets for their basic human rights, but they were met brutally by the regime’s forces.
Our Community supports Iran Protests and condemns the regime.
It is reminded that the widespread protests and uprisings in different cities of Khuzestan Province (southwest Iran) started on Thursday night, July 15, 2021, due to water shortage. But the response of the religious dictatorship to this basic demand was repression and firing on the people.
