Activists and university students in Rojhelat and Iran have called for a general strike on December's fifth, sixth and seventh days.
A group of young people in Tehran have called on protesters for a general strike at Tehran’s Valiasr Intersection at 10 AM during the three days. The Sine Youth Group, a group issuing statements and organizing rallies, said they would continue protesting and make December 7 a turning point to launch a nationwide movement and coordinate between different social movements.
Youths in Ahvaz, Ardabil and Kirkan have also called for a general strike and called on people to boycott unnecessary goods, a reference to things unnecessary for survival, during the three days, according to local telegram channels.
Students at Tehran University and Kurdistan University in Sanaa have also decided to join the general strike and boycott class.
The nationwide unrest in Iran erupted in Iranian Kurdistan’s Saqqez city, the hometown of Zhina Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old student who died in the custody of Iranian morality police, whose death led to the largest and lengthiest since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
