Iran Protests: Large Protests in Shahr-E Kord Over Water Shortages

Shahr-e Kord Protests — Monday, Nov 22, 2021
Shahr-e Kord Protests — Monday, Nov 22, 2021

The people of Shahr-e Kord, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, held the second consecutive day of their large demonstrations on Monday, November 22, 2021, protesting government policies that have resulted in water shortages across the province.

The protesters were chanting anti-regime slogans and encouraging other provinces to join what is slowly becoming a nationwide movement against regime policies.

Like many other provinces, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari is facing severe water shortages. The protesters were saying that government officials are only giving promises and refrain from taking action.

On Monday, November 22, 2021, Habib Fadaee, a civil rights activist that was previously arrested and imprisoned by the regime, joined the protesters and warned that the regime wants to divide the people of Iran and that the water problem has not been solved because the regime is running a “water mafia.”

“We will not give up our rights. We don’t want to bring out our rifles. However, if we don’t receive any answers, we will!” he said.

The protests in Shahr-e Kord began on Sunday, following two weeks of intense protests of the neighboring Isfahan province.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the brave people of Shahrekord who rose up in the wake of protests in Isfahan against the regime’s plunder of water resources.

She said: The people of Iran rise up, from Khuzestan to Isfahan and Shahrekord. They do not want to live under the yoke of the mullahs, who have stolen their water and air. The only way out is to end mullahs’ rule of oppression.
