Iran Focus – People in Yusef-Abad, Navab and Khosh districts in the capital Monday night chanted “Allah-o Akbar” (God is the Greatest) and “Death to Khamenei”, referring to Iran’s Supreme Leader.
Elsewhere in northern Tehran’s district of Zarabkhaneh, north of Bagh-e Mehran, where the Ministry of Intelligence is located, activists distributed leaflets urging residents to take part in anti-government protests from 10-20 June.
They handed out leaflets in Chand Negarestan, Akhavan, Zomorodian, Boustan Dovom, Golzar, Rose, Jafari and Taheri streets.
Also, pro-democracy activists distributed hundreds of political leaflets in central Tehran on Sunday.
The leaflets were distributed in Yusef-Abad District and in the vicinity of the Interior Ministry, Salmas and Golha (Flowers) squares, near the Water and Sewage Department and around Sajjad Hospital.
Some of the leaflets read: “Heroic people of Iran, 10-20 June shall be unforgettable days in Iran’s contemporary history, when the criminal Khamenei regime will shake to its foundation. Come to the street to defend the rights of political prisoners and the Iranian nation. We can and we must send this regime to the dustbin of history, and that day is not far. Let us join together on 10-20 June.”
Iran’s main opposition has called for 10 days of nationwide protests beginning on 10 June to mark the anniversary of the uprising last year.
And, activists in the south of the capital have filled walls lining the streets with political graffiti urging people to participate in anti-government protests next month to mark last June’s uprising.
In parts of Tehran’s District 13 there were slogans on the walls challenging the theocratic state’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Writings on the walls included: “Khamenei, you’ll be finished during [protests on] June 10 to 20” and “Death to Khamenei; don’t forget June 10 to 20.” Political graffiti was particularly visible at 13 Aban Boulevard, and Khaleqi and Norouzi streets.
Political activists had also distributed leaflets in homes and streets, reading, “People of Iran: come to the streets from June 10 to 20 to overthrow absolute clerical rule and the murderous clerical regime.”
