Iran’s nationwide uprising marked its 123rd day on Monday as protests continued, and more people took part in night rallies to voice their hatred of the mullahs and resolve to overthrow their regime. On Monday morning, people in the city of Torbat-e-Jam, northeast Iran, rallied outside the local governor’s office protesting the continued gas shortage and the fact that their families are freezing in sub-zero temperatures. People in this city, like many others across the country, have also been in long lines to purchase kerosene on this fifth consecutive day of the gas shortage crisis. People gathered outside a local Red Crescent branch seeking electric and kerosene heaters. There were also reports of regime authorities dispatching numerous security units into the streets to prevent any possible anti-regime protests as anger among locals was escalating. The protesters defied the suppressive measures and established roadblocks to control the streets and attacked a branch of the regime-affiliated Red Crescent. They also targeted the local governor’s office, chanting “death to Khamenei.” The security forces attacked them and opened fire on the rebellious youths wounding several of them. In Fereydunkenar, northern Iran, there was a long line of cars at a gas station due to the gas shortage crisis. Such scenes were reported from across the country while Iran has the world’s 2nd largest natural gas and 4th largest crude oil reserves. In Shush in Khuzestan Province in southwest Iran, retirees and pensioners of the regime’s Social Security Organization gathered on Monday and were protesting low pensions and poor economic conditions. Regime officials refrain from addressing the pensioners’ demands. In the city of Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan Province, locals gathered for a ceremony to honor the 40th day of Houman Abdullahi’s murder by the regime’s security forces. The crowd was seen chanting anti-regime slogans, including: “Death to Khamenei!”, “Death to the dictator!” and “No to monarchy! No to [mullahs’ regime]! Democracy and quality!” In Tehran, for the second day in a row family members of death row inmates rallied on Monday outside the regime’s judiciary building protesting the death sentences and demanding answers from regime officials.
