For the fifth consecutive night, protests against the Iranian regime erupted in several cities on Saturday.
In the meantime, according to reports from inside Iran, security forces killed one protester in Gohardasht, Karaj, during yesterday’s protests. Karaj was the scene of some of the most fierce clashes between protesters and security forces in previous nights. The victim’s name was Reza Otadi. Videos from yesterday’s protests showed security forces firing at protesters from rooftops. Nonetheless, the people of Karaj came to the streets again tonight to shout their rage against the Iranian regime.
In Tehran, on Saturday evening protesters gathered in College Avenue and chanted “Death to the dictator,” “Mullahs must get lost” and “Iranians, shout for your rights.”
In Qom, protesters are chanting “Death to the dictator” at Towhid Square and are confronting the security forces that have been dispatched to disperse the protesters. “Proud Iranians, show your support,” protesters are chanting.
In Shiraz, people have gathered in groups and are encouraging protesters to join. “Show your pride,” the protesters are chanting. Protesters are wearing masks to avoid being identified by security forces. “If we keep our ranks tight, the security forces won’t be able to do anything,” a protester said.
