Jul 4, 2004
The Islamic republic regime is banning, officially, any gathering or demo planned for July 8th and is mobilizing thousands more of its troops and foreign mercenaries in order to try to smash any popular action. The governors of Esfahan and several cities have declared their firm intention to oppose any move at the occasion of the 5th anniversary the Students Uprising.
Even the requests made by several tolerated religious student associations trying to seek legal authorizations for gathering, a right recognized by the theocratic regime's constitution itself, have been rejected or ignored.
Reports, from sources within the regime's forces, are stating on specific orders granting the use of lethal force against anyone opposing the Islamic State's directives in certain conditions. Iranian cities have a very noticeable foreign occupation look and show the determination of the regime's leaders to smash any rebellion.
Hundreds of check points have been created in each city and militiamen are searching cars or arresting residents under various charges in order to increase the popular fear.
More brutal collects of Satellite dishes and receivers are taking place in Iranian cities and militiamen are rushing to homes using such concept. Rumor's are existing about another deal made between the regime and the Cuban leadership in order to jam again all abroad satellite programs broadcasted by opposition or Persian services of foreign channels. Such deal has been made during Kharazi's last week trip to Cuba and promises of big economic incentives helping the Castro's regime to overcome of its fear from the US warning on any interference in freedom of communication.
The SMCCDI uses often the opposition or the Persian services of foreign satellite TV and radio networks in order to spread its views and calls for the Iranians. Several programs are in line next week in order to pay tribute to the Students Uprising and to call on the population for various protest actions.
