Thousands of Iranian teachers led by their union rallied over the weekend against the Islamic government, demanding higher wages, pensions, human rights, and the release of their imprisoned colleagues.
The protests took place all throughout the country including in the capital Tehran, as well as in Ahvaz, Sari, Rasht, Sanandaj, and others. Throughout Iran, teachers carried signs, chanting for the freedom of detained teachers and for the removal of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.
Iranian workers, ranging from the country’s agricultural sector, shop owners, bazaar merchants, and others, also took to the streets to protest with Iranian teachers, chanting for the resignation of regime officials, human rights abuses, taxes, and corruption inside the Islamic government.
Many of the protesters were able to spread their message by posting videos, hashtags, and photos on social media websites like Twitter and Facebook, highlighting the dire circumstances they and many others face under the Islamic Republic.
On social media, many Iranians slammed Raisi, calling him a liar and someone who did nothing to fulfill his promises to fix the economic situation in the country.
While Raisi and his officials have issued statements sympathizing with the economic plight of Iranian teachers and promises to address their concerns, the actions of Iran’s security forces signal a different response.
The Islamic Republic’s intelligence agents and security forces detained several hundred leading activists nationwide in places like Shiraz and the Kurdish majority provinces in western Iran as a preemptive action to minimize the growth of the demonstrations.
Experts familiar with the protests argue that the arrests tried to intimidate other teachers from protesting and to prevent a potential revolution from occurring.Protesters protesting outside the Iranian parliament building in Tehran faced security forces and special units, whose task was to suppress the demonstrations through brutal force.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
