Protests rising among Iranian societies inside the country pulls great attention.
The new round of anti-government protests began on September 23.
It was the Iranian truckers who lighted the flames by keeping their engines off. Truckers are one important society in the country’s daily framework. According to internet sources reporting to Iran News Wire, the national strike goes on to 190 cities. People cite the social catastrophe to have cut deep into the bones!
A protester from Amol says “We were tired and disappointed with failed promises made by the government. The only solution is to protest against them.”
One fuel driver in Kermanshah mentioned “Rates are rising every day but car rents are fixed. How would you manage your life? I’m tired of this wreck!”
In Tehran, one hardworking driver says “I’ve been at this job for 12 years but I still can’t afford a new truck tire. My truck has a flat tire and if I can’t get it running, I don’t have a job.”
You will find most of the transportation society living below the poverty line. Their jobs are vital to the cities but economic corruption caused by the Islamic rulers is putting them out of business. They no longer have faith in this government and received zero support from them. When truckers don’t have the power to replace tires they have no other choice but to park.
Similar protests are expected to follow among other social communities. Tehran’s merchants have called for a nationwide strike next week.
Iran’s Bazaar is not just a place for business, but also political woes. The marketers discuss cultural and social life, which can play a serious role in rebuilding protests. Everyone in business is keen about this as the Rial plummeted, even more, yesterday. People at the exchange banks reflected the dollar selling at 18,000 Rials.

The wave of unemployment and closure of factories is another factor that will push the society to a new round of protests. Given the fact that we are getting closer to the US oil sanctions on November 4 also pushes.
The workers of more than 35 factories in Zarandiyah and Saveh have not been paid in 10 months. Their salaries are held back as liquidity adds to
Equity workers have also protested for not receiving salaries. They have no work insurance and no one in the government is taking in account. Some of them have not received any salary for more than 48 months.
