They call for the security of union activists, release of jailed teachers, abolition of internal rules on trade union activists and returning to work of guilds and cultural activists.
The sit-in strikers also object to the violation of the right to free education for all, non-standard and insecure schools, the country's gross drop in education, the low level content of educational books,  the density and high number of school students, and the lack of funding required for education in the country.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the noble teachers who have staged sit-ins against the tyranny of the clerical regime, saying: "The catastrophic situation of the employed and retired teachers is the product of the repressive policies of the anti-cultural regime of the mullahs, and as long as this regime is in power, it will even get worse.”
She called the general public, especially the youth, to express solidarity with the educators who face a variety of discrimination and problems, saying that the strike of teachers and academics in the wake of the strike of toiling truck drivers and merchants’ strike last week showed a flare of fury of public anger and hatred toward a regime that has only brought torture and execution, war and terrorism, poverty and unemployment, and corruption and plundering for the people of Iran.

Extensive clashes during the soccer Match in Tehran; chant of 'Death to the Dictator.

On Friday, August 10, during the soccer match between Tehran and Tabriz clubs at Azadi stadium, thousands of spectators expressed their anger and hatred of the oppressive regime by shouting “Death to the Dictator.” It happened despite the fact that the regime’s authorities had stationed a large number of their Basiji forces who are affiliated with the IRGC intelligence section and also the IRGC guards, intelligence and anti-riot guard agents as well as plainclothes mercenaries among the crowd in order to prevent the youths’ protest. Bringing anti-riot guard into the stadium was an unprecedented measure. Nevertheless and in spite of all these measures, the brave youth broke the obstacles that had already been set up in the stadium stand, and chanted “Death to the Dictator” and “Security Force, shame on you, savage, savage” all over the stadium. They resisted against the brutal attack of repressive forces and punished a number of them.
The regime’s tricks for making the two clubs’ fans fight each other and for deviating their chanting did not work and Azerbaijani Iranians and supporters of Tabriz Tractor-Sazi Club also chanted: “Everywhere in Iran is my homeland; Long live Azerbaijan”. Outside of the stadium, young people who were not allowed to enter the stadium clashed with the repressive forces.
The protests continued even after the match and spread to Azadi Square. Anti-riot guards and plainclothes mercenaries rushed into the crowd with their motorcycles and injured and battered them. Brave youths confronted them courageously.
There was also another incident during a soccer match in the Naghsh-e-Jahan Stadium of Isfahan where brave youth started chanting “Death to the Dictator” and other slogans against the regime’s policies of meddling in the region.

In Tehran, despite the siege of the central parts of the city, frustrated people gathered in different places. The brave youth demonstrated and chanted “Death or Freedom” on the Kargar-Jonoubi street. The repressive forces consisting of the Guards, Basijis, the riot guards and plainclothes agents brutally attacked the protesters and battered them.
Demonstrations in the Park-e Shahr of Tehran led to clashes with suppressive forces. The people confronted them while chanting: Rascals, Rascals! A number of protesting girls and boys were arrested.
The brave youths blocked the repressive forces by burning trash bins and tires in the Enghelab Ave.

In Shiraz, Mashhad and Qom, regime’s security forces surrounded the rallies in fear of spreading protests, and tried to prevent the formation of demonstration by attacking the crowd.
The people of Bandar Abbas also gathered on Saturday night for the third consecutive night in protest of the high prices and economic situation in front of the Radio-Television station. They rallied at night in the central bazaar of the city.



demonstration and clashes with IRGC forces in Tehran with the slogans: "Death to 40 years of slavery , We will die take back Iran and  & Death to Khamenei, Death to the Dictator"
One of the most notable characteristics of the demonstrations that shook different Iranian cities in the past week was the protesters’ slogans, which quickly transformed from economic woes to calls for the overthrow of the Iranian regime and the ouster of Ali Khamenei, its supreme leader.
Protests are taking place against the backdrop of escalating economic problems, unemployment, rising prices and the dwindling value of the rial, Iran’s national currency. Since April, the rial has lost half of its value. However, in many cities, protesters are chanting “Death to dictator” and “Death to Khamenei,” a clear and irrefutable call for regime change. This indicates that the people of Iran know well what is the source of their miseries and the daily degradation of their livelihoods.
Among the slogans are chants of “the people are begging while the leader is ruling like god.” While Iran’s economy has been in a freefall, the regime’s authorities and the IRGC continue to embezzle and steal from the country’s wealth to build their own personal economic empires. The National Council of Resistance of Iran has disclosed many of the details of the Iranian regime’s government-induced corruption and how its officials are directly stealing the people’s wealth.

 Karaj, Iran: Repressive forces kill a young man; arrest a number of protesters

On Friday, August 3 a young man from Karaj, Reza Otadi.  was shot dead by repressive forces during the demonstrations in the city, and a large number of protesters were arrested.
On Saturday night, August 4, the Revolutionary Guards Fars News Agency said: “During last night riots in Karaj, one person was shot dead by unknown individuals, and 20 others were arrested. According to field observations of Fars news reporters, leaders of the riot were mostly selected from women this time.”
In order to deceive the public opinion, the IRGC wrote, "The assailant fired from inside the car 206 with a non-military weapon. Earlier and in the riots of December 28, several gunmen who had group affiliations were arrested by the security forces.” This way, the IRGC tried to portray the protesters and the PMOI as those who killed Reza Otadi; a lie that does not deceive anyone. Such lies do not work anymore and the regime must be held accountable for all its killings over the past four decades.
Such lies by a regime that, in spite of the Belgian and German prosecutor's and police statements and the arrest of its terrorist diplomat, attributes the terrorist plot against the Iranians gathering in Paris on June 30th to the PMOI, is quite expectable.

On Friday, August 3, various cities in Iran, including Tehran, Karaj, Eshtehard, Isfahan, Ghahdariijan, Andimeshk, Mashhad, Shiraz, Hamedan, Kermanshah, etc. were host to the demonstration and expression of anger and disgust of the mullahs’ regime. The protests, which began at dusk, continued in many cities until midnight, and turned into conflicts with mercenaries and repressive forces.
In the courageous uprising of the people and youth of Karaj, during the night, hundreds of protesters at Gohardasht T-junction protested chanting: “Cannon, tank, firecracker, Bassijis must be killed; Mullahs live like gods, while the people live in poverty.”
The repressive forces closed all the entrances leading to Gohardasht and targeted the protesters from the roofs of buildings or bridges by bullets. Furious youths clashed with the repressive forces and forced them to flee in a number of streets. They also burned the motorcycles left from those forces, and punished a plainclothes agent and several other criminal mercenaries. Passing-by vehicles at Sepah square in Karaj expressed their solidarity with the brave youths of the city by blaring their horns. Since the mercenaries were not able to confront the youth, the regime supported them with more forces from other cities.
The angry youths of Ghahdarijan continued their protests on Thursday night and confronted the repressive forces’ attacks by barricading streets. They also took control over part of the streets. Bassijis and anti-riot guard mercenaries wounded a number of people by firing at them.
The people of Isfahan, especially the angry youth of Shapur-e-Now, continued their protests and clashed with anti-riot guard mercenaries.
In Tehran, the spectators of the football match chanted slogans "Death to the Dictator” when they were leaving Azadi Stadium.
In Mashhad, the arisen young people demonstrated at Mellat par with the slogan "Death to the Dictator", “Do not be afraid, do not be afraid; we are all together”. In the Emamat Street, people were chanting "Death to the Dictator". Several people were injured as a result of the tear gas.
The people of Hamedan protested with the slogans: “Death to the Dictator”, and “Death to the Basijis”.
The people of Kermanshah chanted: “Cannon, tank, firecracker, the mullahs must be killed”.
Quoting the criminal mullah Hendiani, head of Eshtehard seminary, IRGC news agency (FARS) wrote on August 4th regarding the uprising of the people in this city: “It was exactly 9 o'clock p.m. when the rioters moved to the Eshtehard Seminary… they targeted the front of the Mahdasht Seminary with stones and bricks… it was at Maghrib Azan (dusk) when the rioters gathered in front of the Seminary again; however, more than 500 people this time who were chanting hostile anti-regime slogans.” "Several of these people have been arrested and the operation of finding the rioters,” he added.

Thursday marked the third consecutive day of protests sweeping cities across Iran.
Beginning earlier in the day in Shiraz and the New Shapur district of Isfahan, this wave quickly spread to other cities such as Shahin Shahr, Najaf Abad, Karaj, Rasht, Mashhad and others.
While poor living conditions and economic difficulties may have been the first causes of the nationwide revolts, the protesters are quickly raising the stakes and targeting the very top of the regime in their slogans. Many cities, especially Isfahan and Karaj, were scenes of intense skirmishes
The brave young people of Ahvaz demonstrated at Naderi intersection while chanting: “Our enemy is right here; they are lying that it is America”; “The nation is poor, while the mullahs live like a god.
In Tehran, the people demonstrated at Vali-e Asr Square chanting: “Death to Khamenei; Death to the Dictator; Cannon, tank, firecracker, mullahs should be killed.” They clashed with the IRGC forces who attacked them. They also set fire to trash bins on the way from Vali-e Asr toward Hossein Square in order to block the path of mercenaries.
In Arak, people chanted: The nation is poor, while the mullahs live like a god. High prices and inflation are the people’s calamity
In Najaf Abad, the brave women chanted: They fed Syria, but made our youths old. The brave youths chanted against the suppressive forces: You rascals.
In Shiraz, on Daryoush Street, the brave youths chanted slogans: Death to Khamenei; This month is the month of blood, the mullah is overthrown; Suppression doesn’t work; Cannon, tank, firecracker, the mullahs must get lost; Why you, the people, are sitting? Iran is like Palestine. The youth clashed with the mercenaries who had fired tear gas against them.
The mullahs’ regime had resorted to various tricks to prevent the protests and its spread to other cities. In fear of the outbreak of the people’s anger, mullahs’ intelligence officials desperately tried to discourage people from participating in demonstrations by sending SMS on mobile phones last night.
In a statement by Khamenei's faction in Qom, the so-called "Coordinating Council of Principlists of Qom Province", warned the people not to participate in the demonstrations because the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) uses the issue of high prices and economic disturbances and directs demonstrations against the regime.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the rising people and said: “By defying the criminal Revolutionary Guards, Bassijis، and plainclothes agents once again today, the arisen women and youth represent a defiant generation which will not rest until the Iranian people and nation are free. They displayed the anger and hatred of the Iranian people toward the religious dictatorship ruling Iran.”

Thousands of people from Mashhad rallied from Shohada Square to Tohid Square and chanted the slogans: "Death to the Dictator; Down with high prices; Shame on you who live in palaces, let go of the country.
