Iran’s nationwide uprising is marked its 126th day on Thursday with people, especially in the capital Tehran, continuing their anti-regime campaign in the form of night protests. In Dehgolan, western Iran, a large crowd gathered to mark the 40th day of Shadman Ahmadi’s murder by the regime’s oppressive security forces. They chanted, “Khamenei is a murderer! His rule is illegitimate!” and “Martyrs don’t die!” In Izeh, southwest Iran, locals gathered to mark the 40th day of Donya Farhadi’s murder and chanted, “Bakhtiaris will die, will not accept humiliation.” They also chanted slogans against the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei and the paramilitary Basij. Workers of a local oil terminal Qeshm Island in the Persian Gulf, staged a strike and protested against the regime. In Zahedan, southeast Iran, the regime has resorted to drastic measures to prevent anti-regime protests expected after the Friday prayer congregation. They have set up check points, causing long lines of cars waiting to pass through. In Isfahan farmers took to the streets for the third day running, protesting and demanding regarding water quotas for their lands that have been left devastated due to the regime’s rerouting projects of local rivers for their own plants. On Wednesday, January 18, in Tehran, female members of MEK-affiliated Resistance Units marched and chanted, “People of the world should know, Massoud (Rajavi) is our leader.” In other developments, the European Parliament adopted a resolution, calling on the European Union and its member states to designate the Iranian regime’s IRGC as a terrorist organization and expand its sanctions to all individuals and entities responsible for human rights violations, including Ali Khamenei, Ebrahim Raisi, Prosecutor General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, the regime’s charity organizations (Bonyads) linked to the IRGC and the 227 Parliament deputies who called on the judiciary to execute the protesters. Iranian opposition coalition NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi reiterated her March 2010 call on the international community, including the European Union, to designate the IRGC and Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) as terrorist entities. “I hope the EU and member states put an end to the policy of appeasement, blacklist the IRGC and sanction Khamenei, Raisi and others responsible for killing and repression,” she tweeted.
