Iranians defy regime as wave of protest spreads

Older people came out to protest at the plundering of their pensions. Youths vented fury at the high unemployment rate. Others demanded to know why their government was spending billions of pounds each year fighting in Syria while they struggled to pay the rent.
This cauldron of simmering resentment boiled over into a fourth day of mass protests against the regime in Iran yesterday, in more than 40 cities and towns. They were apparently undeterred by the threat of an “iron fist” issued earlier in the day by the head of the Revolutionary Guard, charged with protecting Iran’s Islamic theocracy.

Iran: Protesters Decry Economic Mismanagement, But Also Express Broader Frustrations
OIAC

Throughout the day on Thursday, reports emerged from various cities in Iran regarding mass protests against high rates of inflations, rising food prices, and a general trend of economic mismanagement. The primary demonstrations took place in Mashhad, the country’s second most populous city, but others were reported in Neyshabour, Kashmar, Birjand, Shahroud, Noushahr, and Yazd, cities that span from central to north and northeastern Iran.
The latest protests were also reportedly an extension of incidents that had taken place earlier in the week, starting in the city of Isfahan after the announcement that 27,000 workers had been fired due to the recent bankruptcies of a number of firms. Such developments contribute to an economic situation that is dire for much of the Iranian population, in spite of the fact that the 2015 nuclear agreement with six world powers has returned large quantities of frozen assets to the Islamic Republic, as well as bringing new business to a variety of government-linked firms.
