“We don’t want an Islamic Republic, Mullahs Get Lost”: Iranian Protestors.
Hundreds of Iranians have taken to the streets in cities across the country, protesting against the crippling political and economic situation. Coming from all walks of life, protestors shout slogans that target the top officials of the clerical system, including the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and President Ebrahim Raisi.
Despite all the efforts to maintain order, protests erupted Wednesday night in several cities in Khuzestan province, which is in southwestern Iran. In Ahvaz, protesters called for Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi to resign: “Raisi, you liar,” they chanted. “What happened to all those things you promised?”
In Dezful, people chanted, “We don’t want an Islamic Republic,” and “We will fight, we will die, we will take back our Iran.” In Andimeshk, they chanted “Mullahs Get Lost!” In Izeh, the security forces fired tear gas as people chanted “Death to Khamenei” and fought back.
