London, Aug. 01 – Disenchanted Iranians stated more than 280 anti-government protests, clashes, strikes, and other forms of social unrest throughout Iran over the past month, according to the opposition Mojahedin-e Khalq (MeK, or People’s Mojahedin).

Most of the protests and public actions occurred in Tehran and other major cities, including Isfahan, Mashad, Ahwaz, and Tabriz.

There were many protests in regions with substantial ethnic minorities, such as Kurdistan and Khuzistan.

Workers staged 170 strikes in the same month, the opposition group said.

Student demonstrations were widespread, despite the closure of most schools and universities during the summer period. Many of the students who took part in anti-government activity were arrested and some continue to be in detention at unknown locations.

Civil servants, nurses, drivers, and other social groups organised more than 50 protests.

The opposition group highlighted the unrest in the Kurdish town of Mahabad, northwest Iran, where it said protests started on July 9 and have not ended since. Several people have been left dead including a woman after police launched a crackdown on Mahabad and neighbouring towns to prevent social dissent from escalating.

The southern province of Khuzistan has also been a hotbed for anti-government demonstrations and clashes between the population and security forces.
