Protests continue in various Iranian cities and universities

Some 2,500 students staged a sit-in at the Azad University of Kazeroun, in the southern Fars Province, reports from Iran say. The students protested the regime's suppressive policies and restrictions imposed on students, as well as disregard for their demands. The students called for the replacement of the university's president.

At the same time, residents of Ilam (western Iran), staged demonstrations on Wednesday, November 12, in different parts of the city, including Ghaffari and Banaii districts, to protest the regime's repression and lack of the most basic necessities of life, including running water.

In the past weeks, Iranian universities and cities have been the scene of angry protests by the public who have challenged the regime's revolutionary Guards and State Security forces in extensive confrontations. This clearly confirms that the absolute majority of the Iranian people have no illusions whatsoever as to the nature of the regime's factions and that they seek the overthrow of the mullahs' religious, terrorist dictatorship in its entirety.
