Maryam Rajavi: Toppling the regime is the only solution for saving Iran’s economy
Honorable bazaaris of Tehran, Isfahan, Shahr-e Ray, Tabriz, Qeshm, Karaj, Bandar Abbas, Rasht, Shahriar, and other cities,
I salute you all for rising up again and resuming your strikes against the usurper clerical regime.
The uprising which started last December is continuing to carry on thanks to the efforts of our people across the country, from Kazerun to Isfahan, Khuzestan and Baneh, from truck drivers and truck owners, to the workers of Haft Tappeh Sugarcane factory and the Steel Factory of Ahvaz, and merchants of bazaar in various cities. Today, the bazaaris and the truck drivers and owners echo the voice of the Iranian people against the mullahs’ destructive rule.
The disastrous state of the economy and the foreign exchange market is the direct product of the regime’s depravity. The free fall of the value of Rial to the world’s lowest is a consequence of the rule of the mullahs who have destroyed everything to preserve their power.
It is the consequence of squandering Iran’s wealth and revenues on the criminal war in Syria, and on export of terrorism and fundamentalism to other countries.
It is the consequence of the devouring of the greater portion of Iran’s economy by Khamenei, the IRGC and state-backed foundations, which has left no business opportunity for bazaar merchants and has put the lion’s share of Iran’s consumers market at the disposal of major shopping centers owned by the IRGC and other regime factions.
The mullahs have no solution for containing this chaotic situation and all of their measures and plans have failed. Sacking the Central Bank’s president, arresting bazaar merchants, spreading lies and false pretenses are no longer effective. Iran’s crumbling economy cannot be saved unless by toppling the regime.
Expanding the protests to bring down the corrupt regime of theft and destruction is the only solution.
I urge the valiant youth of Iran and the resistance units to support the strikes of bazaaris.
As Massoud Rajavi said, “The people of Iran are the ones who have the final say, with their arisen resistance units, the revolting cities, and the National Liberation Army.”
