Plundered people from two credit institutes march to three major locations in Tehran, Iran to stage protests
On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the plundered depositors of the two credit institutions of Afzal Tous and Iranian Alborz gathered in a group of about 100 people, in front of the Tehran City Court of Finance and Bank, and the Ayandeh Bank (Future Bank), as well as the Tejarat Bank (Commerce Bank).
In recent years the IRGC, the Judiciary and State Security Force (SSF) have established Caspian Credit Institution, Padideh Shandiz, Alborz Iranian (Arman), Pardisban and other institutions in a chain under the pretext of cooperative investment enterprises and banks in several cities throughout Iran.
These institutes have been gathering and looting the assets of people from various walks of society. Victims of these plundering and looting have held protests at various occasions in different cities of Iran demanding their money back.
On Tuesday, the plundered people first gathered in front of the monetary prosecutor’s office, throwing eggs and tomatoes at the entrance door and its boards before heading towards the next location. They marched to the Trade Bank nearby and gathered opposite the building, and with the throwing of eggs and tomatoes, the second part of the protest gathering ended. Finally, in front of the Future Bank, which faced the prosecutor’s office, the protesters gathering in the third location and by throwing eggs and tomatoes at the bank they ended the protest rally of the plundered people in Tehran, Iran.
In total, three gatherings took place by these protesters; first opposite the prosecutor’s office for monetary crimes, and then in front of the Commerce Bank, and lastly opposite the Future Bank of Tehran.
During the entire protest and march, the plundered protesters chanted the following slogans against the corruption and looting of their invested money by government authorities:
– The Future Bank is a thief, it steals our money
– The Future Bank is a thief, it is sitting on our money
– The government theft is the last bit of unfaithfulness
– We shall not live under oppression
– Death to Rasoul Tash
– Say death to Saif
