Iran Resistance Movement Alleges Water Shortage Protests


On Sunday, July 14, 2019, the residents of Hemat Abad, located in the suburbs of the 3rd district of Mashhad, northeast Iran, protested over the shortage of potable water and its low quality, which has led to damage in their purification systems and air conditioners. A major problem that many Iranians are facing is something that people from all over the world take for granted every day – access to clean drinking water. Estimates indicate that more than three-quarters of the population – around 80 per cent to be more precise – will be affected.
