Different cities across Iran witnessed teachers taking to the streets yet again to protest their poor living conditions as a result of the regime’s destructive economic policies, or lack thereof. More people from various sectors of Iran’s society are once again voicing their anger over high inflation, skyrocketing prices of basic goods and services, unemployment, corruption, and the regime’s unjust policies.
People throughout Iran continue to specifically hold the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei responsible for their miseries, while also condemning the oppressive the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and paramilitary Basij units, alongside other security units that are on the ground suppressing the peaceful demonstrators.
Protests in Iran have to this day expanded to at least 282 cities. Over 750 people have been killed and more than 30,000 are arrested by the regime’s forces, according to sources of Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The names of 675 killed protesters have been published by the PMOI/MEK.
Reports indicate regime officials disrupted internet connections in Zahedan, the provincial capital of Sistan & Baluchistan, to prevent any reporting and/or posting of today’s protests, including footage.
Confirming reports from local activists, Netblocks, the UK-based internet observatory organization tracking network disruptions and shutdowns across the globe, said “Real-time network data show a significant disruption to internet connectivity in Zahedan, Iran; the incident continues the weekly pattern of regional internet shutdowns targeting anti-government protests during Friday prayers.”
The local Baluchi community in the city of Galikesh in Golestan Province in northeast Iran launched a march protesting the regime’s crackdown against Sunni clerics and demanding their release from prison.

Locals in various districts of Tehran, including Shahrak-e Bagheri, began chanting anti-regime slogans on Thursday night, including:
“We swear on the blood of our compatriots that we stand to the end!”

“So many years of crimes! Down with the mullahs’ regime!”
“Khamenei, protests will continue!”
Teachers gathered outside the local Education Departments in the cities of Karaj, Kermanshah, Hamadan, Malayer, Robat Karim, Neyshabur, and Urmia on Thursday to protest their poor economic situation and low paychecks.
Reports indicate regime agents in Tehran and Alborz provinces, among others, were preventing teachers from holding their gatherings in their respective areas.
Many cities of Iran have been witnessing teachers launching various rallies and protesting their hardships due to the regime’s destructive economic policies, or lack thereof. The protesting teachers have also been demanding the release of their unjustly jailed colleagues.
Employees of the governor’s office in the city of Savojoblagh in Alborz Province, located west of Tehran, also held a gathering on Thursday protesting their poor living conditions as a result of the regime’s disastrous economic policies.
The protests in Iran began following the death of Mahsa Amini. Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, a 22-year-old woman from the city of Saqqez in Kurdistan Province, western Iran, who traveled to Tehran with her family, was arrested on Tuesday, September 13, at the entry of Haqqani Highway by the regime’s so-called “Guidance Patrol” and transferred to the “Moral Security” agency.
She was brutally beaten by the morality police and died of her wounds in a Tehran hospital on September 16. The event triggered protests that quickly spread across Iran and rekindled the people’s desire to overthrow the regime.
