Public execution leads to clashes in central Iran

SMCCDI (Information Service):
Another public execution lead, today, to sporadic but violent clashes in the City of Najaf-Abad located in Esfahan province.

Security forces resorted to violence in order to control an angry crowd which tried to oppose the execution of a freedom fighter named Ghobad Sia-Mansoor.

Clubs, chains and tear gas were used against the demonstrators which shouted slogans, such as, "Marg bar Jomhoori e Eslami" (Down with Islamic republic) or "Dolat be in bi edalati, harguez nadide mellati" (Such unjust regime has never been seen by any people).

Several demonstrators were injured or arrested by militiamen who were sent from Esfahan in order to secure the execution of this new victim of the Islamic regime qualified as "armed bandit".

The Islamic regime uses various labels, such as, Drug Smuggler, Spy, Rapist, Bandit or Hooligan in order to qualify its armed opponents in an effort to help its European and Japanese Collaborators in their effort to justify the continuation of their economic relations with the Mullahcracy.
