December 29, 2017. Reuters reported, Iranian police dispersed anti-government protesters in the western city of Kermanshah on Friday, the Fars semi-official news agency said, as protests spread to Tehran and apparently several other cities a day after rallies in the northeast.

The outbreak of regional unrest reflects growing discontent over rising prices and alleged corruption, as well as concern over the Islamic Republic’s costly involvement in regional conflicts such as Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this week, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared the United States as Iran’s number one enemy. His speech was televised on state TV and he slammed American hostility towards the Islamic Republic, accusing it of bullying.

He ironically accused U.S. President Donald Trump of supporting terrorism in the Middle East.

Khamenei said that Iran will never give in to the pressure coming from the United States with regards to the 2015 nuclear deal.

It is risky to be a journalist who works for a dissenting news outlet in Iran. Reportedly, arrests and imprisonment of free minded journalists has been escalating in recent years.

In fact, the Iranian regime is known to attack not only the reporters and broadcasters of independent and foreign information, but the recipients, as well. It is illegal to own satellite receiver equipment in Iran, but millions of Iranians use satellite equipment to tune into banned television networks. Equipment that has been confiscated by regime authorities is regularly replaced. Additionally, countless Iranians use virtual proxy networks (VPN) to evade restrictions on their use of the internet to gain information.

On Sunday October 29, 2017. Iranian authorities prevented a gathering at the tomb of ancient Persian king Cyrus the Great and arrested a number of suspects. A statement from the National Council of Resistance of Iran said that officials have taken repressive measures since a few weeks ago “To prevent people from entering Pasargadae, Revolutionary Guards, Basij, police and plain-clothed forces were sent from neighboring provinces and cities to Fars province and the surrounding areas of Pasargadae.

As Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, thousands of activists and human rights defenders gathered outside to protest the legitimization of the Iranian Regime and call for regime change.

They dressed up in caricature-esque costumes of Rouhani and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, chanted “Rouhani. No, no, no” and “Free, Free Iran”, and gave out literature to document the Regime’s crimes.

Sonia Samsami, the US Representative of the National Council of Resistance to Iran (NCRI), said: "We want the American people to know that the Iranian people do not want a clerical regime. Regime change at the hands of the people is the only solution to the Iran crisis."
