Courageous youth in Azadi Square took down Khamenei's banner. The repressive forces tried to disperse the people by tear gas. The protesters chanted “Bastard, bastard!” IRGC Brigadier General Mohsen Rezaee, secretary of the Expediency Council, and former head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, fearful of the Iranian people's uprising said: "The problem of high cost and the challenge of financial and credit institutions is serious ... In any protest, it may be possible that hypocrites (referring to PMOI) and seditionists intrude but the people do not repeat their slogans, in return, the government and the parliament have to solve the problems. Inefficiencies cannot be compensated by words."
This evening, on the third day of nationwide uprising of the Iranian people, the Revolutionary Guards opened fire on the demonstration of brave people of Doroud and killed at least two protesters. This inhuman crime occurred while the IRGC forces failed to disperse protesters by tear gas and beating. The names and particulars of the martyrs will be announced later.

Mohsen Hamedani, Deputy Governor of Tehran's Provincial Security Council, said about the protests of the people of Tehran: "On Enghelab Ave, between Enghelab Sq. and Vali-e Asr intersection, some unlawful gatherings were formed. However, in cooperation with the police we are going to control them.”
