Save Shahr-e Kord -updated

The 7th night of the #IranianProtests

Food protests in Iran triggered last week by a sudden hike in prices of essential goods were violently repressed with security forces using lethal force

A new wave of nationwide protests was triggered last week by a cut in state subsidies

for imported wheat that caused price hikes of as

much as 300% for a variety of flour-based staples.

The prices of essential goods

including bread, milk, dairy products, eggs, poultry,

and cooking oil have also risen sharply

amid Iran’s 40-percent inflation rate.

The cities of Andimeshk, Dezful, Izeh

, Droud, Shahrekord, Junqan, Yasuj,

and Neishabour were among areas

hit by protests over skyrocketing prices of food staples.

All sectors of Iranian society are

being crushed under soaring inflation,

rampant unemployment, meager wages,

and widespread water shortages

, as well as the Iranian regime’s repressive policies.

Speaking on May 9 on state television,

Raisi pledged that the price of traditional bread,

gasoline, and medicine would remain unchanged.

In order to compensate for the rise in prices,

Raisi said

direct payments

equivalent to approximately $10 or $13

would be disbursed for two months

for each family member

of low-income households

. Later, he said

Iranians will be offered electronic coupons

that would allow them to access

a limited amount of subsidized bread.

Reports suggested that the price of cooking oil

had almost quadrupled since Raisi’s announcement,

while the price of eggs and chicken nearly doubled.

Lethal state violence

against peaceful protests

Following the recent protests in Iran,

the state security forces, and riot police were

dispatched to restive cities to confront the protests.

Though the exact number of people detained during the food protests

in Iran is not known

, reports indicate that hundreds of protesters

, including children, have been arrested.

The detainees are in danger of maltreatment and torture.

Bus drivers join teachers in a strike

heavy presence of security forces in

Tehran and several other cities.

According to

the Coordinating Council

of the Iranian Cultural Teachers

Associations,

since the early hours of Thursday,

May 12,

security forces

and plainclothes agents

were stationed

in Baharestan Street

, near the Iranian Parliament building.

According to the council,

two protesting teachers,

Massoud Farhikhteh

and Lotfollah Jamshidi

, were arrested at the same time

as the security forces prevented

any gathering.

Social media reports said that

Siamak Sadeghi Chehrazi,

a well-known activist from Ahvaz,

who was present at today’s rally on May 12,

was severely beaten and arrested in front

of the

General Department

of Education of Khuzestan.

The council also reported that

security forces prevented teachers

from gathering and

arrested “more than 50 people.”

Teachers in Iran

have been protesting again

after Iran’s Minister of Education

on Thursday,

May 5, implicitly called

the teachers’ protest rallies “illegal”

and threatened to “expel” the participants.

Meanwhile,

the Ministry of Intelligence announced

on Wednesday that two nationals

of a “European” country in Iran

had been arrested on charges

of attempting to create “unrest”

and claimed that they were in contact

with the Coordinating Council of the

Iranian Cultural Teachers Associations.

Iranian teachers rallied today in various cities

including

Amol, Kermanshah,

Marivan, and Sanandaj

to demand the release of detained teachers

and express their economic woes.

Bijar, Saqez, Shahreza, Sardasht,

Ardabil, Rasht, Abdanan

, North Khorasan,

Qazvin, Shiraz,

Isfahan,

Fasa, and Karaj

are among the other cities

that witnessed teachers’ gatherings on Thursday.

In most of these rallies,

the teachers chanted slogans calling

for the release of their detained colleagues.

Iranian Teachers Trade Association in Isfahan

reported today

that “Emadi”

, a member of the association

was arrested

by security forces

on Wednesday evening.

The association has also

said that security forces

confiscated his mobile phone

and that they sent “false” messages

to Telegram groups

from his account.

In a statement on May 7,

the Coordinating Council

of the

Iranian Cultural Teachers Associations

announced that teachers

would hold a nationwide rally

on Thursday, May 12

if the detained teachers

were not released.

The statement

came at a time

when at least 11 teachers

and teachers’ union activists

were incarecerated in prison.

Names of the detained teachers

In a report on Monday, May 9,

the Coordinating Council said that

Rasoul Badaghi,

Jafar Ebrahimi,

Mohammad Habibi,

and Ali Akbar Baghani,

the detained teachers,

had been “

severely interrogated in recent days

to accept non-union charges.”

Teachers

have repeatedly staged large-scale

protest rallies

in dozens of cities over the past year.

The Iranian political prisoner

named Mohammad Ali

(Pirooz) Mansouri

has been

denied urgent treatment

and furlough

He has been deprived

of necessary medical care

and of a sick leave.

He has been serving

his 15th year incracerated in

Raja’i Shahr Prison

in the city of Karaj,

near the capital, Tehran

The letter of Iran Mansouri

Mansouri’s daughter,

Iran Mansouri,

wrote a letter to

Javid Rahman,

the Special Rapporteur

on human rights in Iran,

expressing concern

about her father’s condition.

The letter

was also sent

to Amnesty International

and to the

UN Human Rights Council.

Iran Mansouri,

has pleaded for her father’s life.

She wrote in the letter,

“My father

was rushed

to a hospital

in September 2021

due to a heart attack

and he underwent

immediate heart surgery.

He has not been allowed

to temporarily leave the prison

despite the sensitivity

of his heart condition

and despite that

the doctor’s emphasis

was that

imprisonment

could endanger

his health.

Mohammad Ali

(Pirooz) Mansouri has

spent 15 years in prison

and his sentence

will be completed

in less than two months.

However

it has been claimed in regards

of the reason why

Mohammad Ali

(Pirooz) Mansouri

has been denied furlough

is that it is

because of a second sentence

that has been issued against him

while he was incarecerated in prison.”
