On Chahar-Shanbeh Souri, with the slogan “Death to the core of the Supremel Leader”, we will target the heart of the regime

Planet Iran Editor’s note: Chahar-Shanbeh Souri (direct translation is Wednesday Festivity) the feast of fire. This celebration heralds the approaching of Norooz, the Iranian new year, a pre-Islamic celebration of Spring and the vernal equinox on March 21st. Chahar-Shanbeh Souri is celebrated on the last Wednesday eve (Tuesday night) before Norooz. People build small bonfires and jump over the flames to purify and purge their spirits of all the negativity and pain of the passing year so that they can begin the new year with a fresh outlook and jovial disposition. During this celebration, it is also customary to light sparklers and throw fireworks. It is also customary for people to do a form of ‘trick or treating’ where people from neighborhoods go around from house to house collecting food for the poor.

Since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian regime has done everything in it’s power to suppress Iranians from celebrating Persian festivals and celebrations, calling them pagan in an attempt to eradicate pre-Islamic Persian heritage. This specific celebration has always been an annual bone of contention and a sort of reckoning between the Iranian people who hold on steadfast and true to their Persian heritage and the Coup d’Etat regime whose official ‘cultural’ identity is an arcane hodgepodge of Messianic Islam and various other ideologies and movements thrown in for good measure.

As the wave of protests in Iran continues look for the next wave, on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 16th and 17th. Iranians throughout Iran have begun to prepare for this celebration and calls for protests has begun to ring out all across Iran. On Chahar-Shanbeh Souri Iranians have vowed to turn out en mass all around Iran in order to show their love of their culture, customs, identity and homeland and their contempt for the Islamic regime and to continue to call for regime change.

Iran in the past 9 months…WE ARE STILL STANDING; GO GREEN!

The bonfires of Chahar-Shanbeh Souri will expel the evil from our land
