Retirees rally in six Iranian provinces to demand their rights.
Iran protests continued on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, with the retirees’ protests in several cities. Female retirees also took part in these protests.
Iranian women know that they can achieve their rights only if they tie their demands with the demands of the nationwide movement.
The retirees hold rallies every Tuesday in protest of their dire living conditions and the clerical regime’s failure to respond to their needs. This week they held protest rallies in Qazvin, Hamedan, Ilam, Kermanshah, Khuzestan, and Kurdistan.
The retirees called for the freedom of imprisoned teachers and complained in their chants about high prices, inflation, and the backbreaking pressure on them and their families. They chanted, “Neither the parliament nor the government think about the nation.”
They also chanted, “Enough with hollow promises, our refrigerators are empty.”
The state-run ILNA news agency also reported that some of the protesting retirees of the Communications Company have been arrested in Razavi Khorasan Province in the northeast. (The state-run ILNA news agency, September 26, 2023)
