The demonstration that began on Thursday in Mashhad and several other cities of Khorasan Razavi province quickly swept across the country within two days and turned into a national uprising against the mullahs’ government.

People are demanding the overthrow of the mullahs' rule in the demonstrations, and slogans are chanted against Khamenei. In a few instances, Khamenei's images were dragged down and people attacked some government centers, according to reports from inside Iran.

Protest demonstrations continued on Friday in the cities of the provincial centers, including Kermanshah, Isfahan, Rasht, Khorramabad, Ahvaz, Hamedan, Qom, Zahedan, Sari and other cities. The slogans of the demonstrators were:

“Neither Gaza, nor Lebanon, my life is a sacrifice for Iran" 

“Death to the dictators”, “Death to Rouhani”

"Forget about Syria, think about us”.

 “Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid, we are together in this” 

 “Political prisoner must be released.” 

“The nation is poor, agha [Khamenei] is like god”

“Either death or freedom”

Seyed Ali [Khamenei], shame on you, give up the rule

Seyed Ali [Khamenei], shame on you, let go the country

Death to Hezbollah
