Defiant youth in Mahdasht, Karaj, also gathered in support of the people of Khuzestan. People also chanted in support of Khuzestan on the roof of homes in Karaj that Khuzestan was not alone.

The religious dictatorship ruling Iran has cut off and disrupted the Internet in Khuzestan to prevent the spread of protests and sensor the news.

Defiant youths and supporters of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), in different cities of Khuzestan Province and surrounding cities blocked transportation highways last night to prevent the dispatch of IRGC, and the State Security Force (SSF) to the restive cities. Last night, in Behbahan, defiant youths blocked the Behbahan-Gachsaran, and Behbahan to Amir-Hatef highways by setting fire to tires and creating roadblocks in a show of support for the uprising in Khuzestan.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), saluted the arisen people of Ahvaz and Khuzestan Province who, in dire need of water and freedom, has come to the streets and chant ‘we will not accept humiliation.’ Mrs. Rajavi called on all youths to rush to the aid of the
people of Khuzestan, especially those wounded. She said that opening fire on unarmed residents and the martyrdom of a young man in Shadegan again demonstrated that as long as the plundering mullahs remain in power, poverty, unemployment, and disease will continue. The mullahs deny the people water, power, bread, housing, and vaccines to provide for the unpatriotic nuclear and missile projects and their warmongering in the region.
