Iran: Pro-government rallies held to protest violence 

Thousands of Iranian citizens rallied through several of Iran's major cities in support of the government on Wednesday.



Supporters were seen holding their national flag in the cities of Qom, Bushehr and Arak, as they made their way through central streets, pumping their fists in the air in support of the government. State TV said the marchers were demonstrating against violence seen during recent demonstrations.



At least 21 people have died in anti-government protests that have taken place since Thursday, with rallies against rising food prices, unemployment and alleged corruption.



President Hassan Rouhani has acknowledged the public's anger over Iran's flagging economy, though he and other officials have warned that the government would not hesitate to crack down on those it considers lawbreakers.



Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has also blamed recent riots on meddling by the "enemies of Iran."

    • @gosale1¬†

      Do you even know how much of the 150 billion that actually been released or are you assuming.

      Do you also know where that money will be allocated to? The parliament of Iran will receive the money and allocated it to certain sectors, do you even know which sectors it will be?

      Allow me to inform you about it, Boing, Airbus, Uranium rods from Russia. Uranium being disposal cost money, especially if cant dispose it yourself. IAEA inspections on 75 locations, who do you think pays More..

    • @corgi_o_ner¬†Salt Water Taffy are so good. I really like the pink and brown ones. Not sure what flavors they are, perhaps chocolate and strawberry...but they do not taste like it, from what I can recall of their taste...

    • @Fox Dye,
      A good banana anything has always been my favorite. Never liked most combo flavors.
      As I say, coming from a banana expert of sorts, this taffy is the real deal. And no after taste but a very pleasant one!
      It was well worth mentioning to a fellow stoner too. Lol
      I miss Screaming Yellow Zonkers, the trip food of the Gods!

  • Well there you go, If the people decided to take to the streets at night, when the rioters are out, the whole thing would be over in one night.

    In 2009 Basij had 9 million members and now they have more than 22 million members registered.

    Also Basij don't have weapons, they are activated during war time so when you read that Basij killed this and that, its most likely a lie, during peace time they do voluntary work. They certainty don't get weapons each time people riot at night.

    The re More..

  • Broadcasting the imminent implosion of Iran distracted our media from their "fake news" hysteria for a while. Funny how none of Iran's protests looked as bad as some of ours.

  • Notice the difference in dress between anti and pro-government demonstrators.
    The anti's oddly wear mostly western style clothing while the pro's wear mostly traditional garb?
    This isn't a government regime thing, it's an ongoing Islamic religious thing! Fact is, many Iranians would no doubt choose a more American way of life.
    So, why do we call people who only wish to be more like us the world's number 1 terrorists anyway?
