A genuine desire for revolution — Iran protests

Thousands Rally Both For And Against Iranian Government

That brings the estimated death toll to 21 in unrest linked to the protests that began last Thursday in the second city of Mashhad and quickly spread across the country.

Iranians, especially the young and the working poor, are angry about everything from corruption and unemployment to the lack of freedom under Iran's religious rule. For nearly a week now, tens of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets in various cities throughout the Islamic Republic in the largest mass demonstrations of their kind in nearly a decade. "It requires too much bloodshed to maintain its power while at the same time losing legitimacy through such acts, and it requires making enemies out of natural allies to create distractions", he said.

The detention figures for other Iranian cities cannot be confirmed.

In comments posted to his official website, the Ayatollah appeared to blame foreign nations for exacerbating the unrest.

More than 450 protesters were arrested in the capital in the last three days, Tehran's deputy provincial governor said, and hundreds of others were detained around the country, with judicial officials saying they would be severely punished.

The supreme leader said he would elaborate in coming days. We've call in longtime visitor to Iran who's watching the protests, Robin Wright of The New Yorker. Rouhani, with impeccable credentials as a cleric, was elected because he represented moderation and reforms.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The biggest anti-government demonstrations in nearly 10 years are spreading across Iran, and at least 13 people have been killed so far.

According to Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, Iran's Interior Minister, the unemployment rate in some parts of the country is over 60%. The exiled Iranian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi anticipates that these protests will get even bigger than the ones in 2009.

WRIGHT: Well, there are a lot of things happening that play out in a lot of different levels. When the Iranian government pursued its nuclear development program, this invited stiff economic sanctions that adversely impacted on the lives of ordinary citizens.

The exiled People's Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) issued a press release on the deaths of protesters, reporting that "at least two protesters were killed in the town of Izeh and several wounded as the Revolutionary Guards opened fire".

On the other side, Ahmadinejad's supporters organized protests against the Green Movement's supporters and chanted against the so-called foreign interference in Iran's domestic affairs by the U.S. and western countries.

Rouhani slammed Trump for a similar tweet Monday in which the US leader said the Iranian people were "repressed" and that it was "TIME FOR CHANGE!"

Iran and Russia are the main allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while the United States, Saudi Arabia and Turkey support rebel groups.

Khamenei's remarks followed more deadly violence on Monday, in which nine people were killed, including seven protesters, a member of a pro-government militia and a policeman. The first is fundamentalist, which takes the reins of the state's politics, powers, economy and security. "They are hungry for food and for freedom." . "Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted", he wrote.

The meeting notes concluded that the unrest "threatens the regime's security".

President Hassan Rouhani's words have been more measured. And many companies haven't paid salaries for up to a year!

The Trump administration called on Iran's government to stop blocking Instagram and other popular social media sites.
