Call for protests in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan province

The citizens of Zahedan, city of Sistan and Baluchestan Province, have been taking to the streets every Friday since Iranian security forces opened fire on people on September 30, 2022. The massacre is known as "Bloody Friday".

News Center - The Iranian regime continues to use all kinds of brutal methods to crack down on the nationwide protests that started in Iran and Rojhilat Kurdistan following the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini by Iran’s so-called “Morality police” in September 2022.

The bloodiest massacre committed by Iranian soldiers and police was the massacre in Zahedan, city of Sistan and Baluchestan Province, on September 30, 2022. Since then, the people of Zahedan have been taking to the streets every Friday to protest the massacre, known as “Bloody Friday”.

Yesterday, a group of young people in the city called on the citizens of the city to protest the massacre today. “We will keep taking to the streets to protest the crimes of the Iranian government despite all the attacks of the dictatorship regime. We call on everyone to take to the streets tomorrow after Friday prayers,” the group said in the statement.

She lost one of her eyes

While dozens of people were killed and injured in the massacre, many people were arrested. Ghazal Ranjkesh, a law student, lost one of her eyes after the Iranian security forces shot her in the face at close range in Bandar Abbas on November 23, 2022. After her treatment at a hospital, she wrote on her social media account, “The last image my right eye recorded was the smile of the man shooting at me.”

Her health condition is deteriorating

Mother of a 13-year-old child, Sahar Shahnazi was arrested and transferred to Evin prison in December 2022 for participating in the nationwide protests. According to local sources, she started a hunger strike 22 days ago to protest the conditions of her imprisonment. She has reportedly suffered from acute physical problems, severe weakness and swelling in her face, and lost eight kilos until now. Sahar Shahnazi has been banned from seeing her family.
