Hundreds wounded or arrested in Fire Fiest riots


March 14

Hundreds were wounded or arrested during the "Tchahr-Shanbe Soori" (Fire Fiest) riots which rocked, this evening, most Iranian cities. Some reports are also stating about several deaths, but, the Islamic regime's sources are attributing them to incidents that have happened due to use of explosives by the victims themselves.

Those arrested will be kept in jail and subject to harsh punishment as already warned by the Islamic regime. Arrested females are expected to be condemned to lashes and the males to be kept for along time before even being send to speedy courts.

The most violent clashes happened in the Madar, Javadieh and sadeghie areas of Tehran and main squares of cities, such as, Esfahan, Ahvaz, Khorram-Abad, Hamedan, sari and Kermanshah.Several public buildings and business have been damaged by what has been confirmed as the plainclothes agents of the regime, itself, in order to justify repression. Some of the same elements were seen burning US and Israeli flags in order to deviate the meaning of the popular riots and in order to simulate, for propaganda purposes, the existence of anti-American feelings among Iranians.

The riots, despite being expected, took the regime by surprise due to an unprecedented participation which marks the increasing Nationalistic and Secularist feelings of Iranians. Even opposition groups, such as the Iraqi based Marxist-Islamist MKO, have had to line up in order to avoid loosing more ground among Iranian masses. The Cult group, which doesn't benefit of a real popularity among Iranians, is now even trying to claim leadership of what happened while everyone know that its ideology was to fight against Iran's national and cultural heritage, not a very long time ago.
