We have no idea what is going on over there. I think I heard that it was price hikes but I dont know on what. I also dont think this is very many people. I heard one demonstration was 50 folks. I don’t see this as anything but a nuisance to the government their. They will crush it with great violence in any event.
Of course, the whole idea behind sanctions is to create exactly that kind of problem.
And the demonstrators are chanting “Death to the Mullahs”, Death to Khomeini and such.
The Soviet Union used to seem able to crush dissent, until one day the soldiers just decided not to fire on protestors.
