Iran: Protests continue in Khuzestan Province Despite Internet Blackout and Security Measures

Protests continue in Iran’s Khuzestan province over skyrocketing prices of basic goods. In Ahvaz, the citizens set tires ablaze and blocked roads.

In Izeh, heavy security presence and arrests did not prevent people from holding rallies. Angry citizens brought down the Iranian regime’s flag in protest to government policies.

Protests began last week as the price of bread, oil, and other basic goods increased steeply.

Authorities have cut internet access to prevent the news of the protests from spreading.
