The earthquake-stricken and deprived women of Sarpol-e Zahab protested against the power outages of their trailers and tents by municipality officials.
On Sunday, July 21, 2019, the women of Sarpol-e Zahab staged protests against the municipality agents. In the summer heat, government officials planned to cut off the electricity of the trailers and tents where the earthquake victims reside. However, the protests continued until Sunday evening and the earthquake-stricken people blocked the streets by burning tires and garbage bins to prevent government officials from approaching. The earthquake-stricken people, and in particular the protesting women, threw stones at the firefighters preventing them from putting out the fire. The earthquake-stricken people protested and chanted against Khamenei and the mullahs’ regime.
Sarpol-e Zahab was the center of the earthquake last year. The powerful earthquake destroyed whole buildings and ripped off their facades in the western Iranian province.
