State Department Press Statement Regarding Protests in Iran

U.S. Department of State

Press Statement

Heather Nauert
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
December 29, 2017

 

We are following reports of multiple peaceful protests by Iranian citizens in cities across the country. Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos. As President Trump has said, the longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are Iran’s own people.

The United States strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters. We urge all nations to publicly support the Iranian people and their demands for basic rights and an end to corruption.

On June 14, 2017, Secretary Tillerson testified to Congress that he supports “those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of government. Those elements are there, certainly as we know.” The Secretary today repeats his deep support for the Iranian people.

        Finding lots of new knowledgeable folks to follow on Twitter.

        According to this poster the Iranian government is paying counter protesters to come in tomorrow also. I am reading a lot of comments about the the Iranian National Guard protesting along with the common people but dressed in plain clothes. That is why they are not cracking down on the protesters.

        We will know very quickly whether there is any real protection for the mullahs.

        Shame on Obama, Hillary, John Kerry and all the others who enabled, emboldened and enriched this regime. Blood is on their hands.
