The content of this page will be updated with the latest news of the Iran protests.
Iran has been rocked with nationwide protests for regime change for nearly two weeks. The nationwide uprising extended into its thirteenth consecutive day on Wednesday, November 27.
Tehran and other cities are witnessing ongoing protests as the Iranian people have risen for regime change in at least 172 cities across the country, with at least 450 killed and over 4,000 people injured by the regime’s oppressive security forces. Reports also indicate more than 10,000 protesters have been arrested.
Protesters are demanding the overthrow of the Iranian regime and targeting its Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as the source of corruption and economic and social problems and lack of freedom and fundamental rights.

Shocking Admissions on the Iran Protests by the Regime’s Interior Minister
Hundreds of thousands of people took part in the Iran protests earlier this month, in at least 100 areas of Tehran and most of Iran’s provinces, the regime’s Interior Minister said in a stunning admission on state television late on Tuesday.
Here’s what Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli told TV1 channel on November 26, 2019:
- Between 130,000 to 200,000 people took part in the Iran protests.
- The protesters demanded ‘regime change.’
- The Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), or Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), was behind much of the protests.
- The Iran protests took place in at least 100 areas of the capital Tehran.
- The protests also took place in 27 of Iran’s 31 provinces.
- A state of emergency was declared in five of Iran’s provinces, including Tehran, Fars, Isfahan, and Khuzestan.
- Protesters destroyed at least 50 police and army centers, 140 government centers, 183 police vehicles, nine seminaries, 731 state-affiliated banks and 70 gas stations.
The British Committee for Iran Freedom (BCFIF) has strongly condemned the Iranian regime for its massive crackdown on the ongoing Iran protests.
In a statement on behalf of the BCFIF on November 26, 2019, Professor Lord Alton of Liverpool said: “We also condemn the Iranian authorities for the near complete internet shutdown for over a week, cutting off the entire country from the outside world and paving the way for its security organs and the paramilitary Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to brutally crush the peaceful protests.”
Iran’s regime is doomed, desperate and dazed. For weeks, the people of Lebanon and Iraq have risen up against its destructive meddling. And, now for nearly a week, the people of Iran in 176 cities have revolted to unseat it in Tehran itself, argues Dr. Ali Safavi of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Lindsey Graham, U.S. Senator:
Contrary to what the Revolutionary Guard leader Hossein Salami says, the biggest threat to the Iranian people is not the American government or American people — it is the Ayatollah’s henchman like Salami.
Reporting by PMOI/MEK Iran, November 2019 — New videos obtained from inside Iran show security forces torturing protesters. Other videos show demonstrators calling for regime change and destroying banners of Ali Khamenei and other regime leaders. Protests that erupted after gas price hike expanded to more than 176 cities across Iran. So far, security forces have killed more than 450 protesters and injured more than 4,000. Some 10,000 Iranian demonstrators have also been arrested.
Reporting by PMOI/MEK Iran, November 2019 — During the protests that erupted in Iran after a government-imposed fuel price hike, security forces brutally beat and shot demonstrators. Due to a near-total shutdown of internet services, the crackdown on the protests had remained hidden. As internet connectivity is gradually being restored, we’re receiving new footage from the protests. In many cities, protesters are chanting slogans agains Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Iranian regime. There have also been many cases where demonstrators have set fire to the vehicles and buildings of security forces as well as banks and other financial insitutions which symbolize Iran’s government corruption.
