Maryam Rajavi hailed the protesting people of Esfahan and Tehran and called on all people to join the national movement in defense of women
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, hailed the people of Esfahan and Tehran for demonstrating to protest the anti-human crime by mullahs’ regime against the women of our homeland and called on all Iranians, especially the women and the youth, to join the national movement in defense of Iranian women. The crumbling regime of Velayat-e faqih, engulfed in internal and external crises is trying to avert the explosion of people’s wrath by resorting to these heinous crimes and creating an atmosphere of terror and fear.
Mrs. Rajavi called on the international community to condemn this anti-human crime by mullahs’ regime and to adopt immediate measures through the UN Security Council to stop these crimes. She stated that the silence by the international community in face of these tragedies, for whatever reason, virtually encourages this regime and gives it a free hand to continue with these crimes in Iran.
On Wednesday, October 22, the angry people of Esfahan and Tehran staged an extensive demonstration in protest to the barbarity of mullahs’ regime organized criminal gangs in splashing acid on women and girls.
In Esfahan, despite closing down the streets where demonstration was taking place, extensive security provisions, and the heavy presence of suppressive elements, this demonstration was held with a dense crowd in Nikbakht Street across from the Justice building and also in the Chaharbagh Street. Similarly in Tehran, despite suppressive provisions, demonstration was held across from the parliament.
The demonstrators shouted: “You victimized sister, you will remain in our heart”, “You worse than ISIS; you splash acid on us”, “Our parliament is our shame, our shame”, “Death to the one who splashes acid… death to one who splashed acid”, “Veiling cannot be achieved by coercion”, “With or without veil, we don’t want splashing of acid”, “The right of woman for security? Splashing acid, atrocity”, “Misogynic laws should be annulled”, “Public prosecutor be ashamed and leave your position”, and “Security forces, where are the eyes of my sister?”
