Brave women in Khorramshahr set a role model for all women
On the fifth night after the tragic collapse of a ten-story tower in Abadan that led to the deaths of dozens of people, including many women and children, the people of Iran continued their anti-regime protests in dozens of cities in Khuzestan and other provinces.
More anti-regime solidarity protests and ceremonies took place in Shahinshahr (Isfahan Province), Shiraz (Fars Province), Bushehr (Bushehr Province), and Yazd (Yazd Province). Women’s presence was remarkable everywhere. They led the anti-regime chants calling for regime change.
Abadan is the second major city in the southwestern Khuzestan Province and Iran’s largest oil refinery seat.
The people of Abadan lost dozens of their loved ones when a half-constructed 10-story building collapsed on May 23, 2022. The 10-story Metropole tower collapsed due to regime agents’ negligence and corruption, leaving at least 24 killed and dozens injured and under the rubble.
