Iranians Stage Second Day of Pro-Gov’t Protests, Condemn Deadly Unrest
Local Editor

Millions of Iranians staged fresh nationwide demonstrations to renew their support for the Islamic establishment and denounce the recent wave of deadly unrest that hit some areas in the country.

Iran Protests

For the second consecutive day, demonstrators flooded the cities in several towns and cities, including the northeastern cities of Mashhad, Isfahan, Shiraz, Rasht, Yasoij, Ardabil and Urmia.

Demonstrators were holding up national flags and portraits of Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, shouting pro-establishment slogans.

The participants also held the US and the ‘Israeli' regime responsible for the recent wave of violence in Iran.

Similar rallies were held in a number of Iranian cities on Wednesday, while people in the capital, Tehran, are set to hold a demonstration after noon prayers on Friday.

Last week, a number of peaceful protests began in several areas across the country, with the participants calling on authorities to address their economic issues. The protests had no permits from relevant authorities.

Those gatherings were, however, overshadowed when armed elements and vandals showed up among ordinary protesters and began to launch attacks on public property, police stations and religious sites.

The original protesters soon left the streets upon calls by the authorities so security forces could deal with the rioters and sporadic violence, which continued in some towns and cities for several days.

Over a dozen people have lost their lives in the violence, according to state media reports.

The violence drew praise from Tel Aviv and Washington, which voiced firm support for the rioters.

For his part, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that based on the rights enshrined in the Constitution and the Charter of Civil Rights, people are free to criticize the government or stage protests, but the manner of expressing such criticism should be constructive and help improve domestic conditions.
