Anti-government protests in Iran

Protests against the regime develop in many cities of Iran from the commemoration campaigns for the victims of the downed Ukrainian passenger plane.

In the past two days protests against the rulers in Tehran have taken place in many places in Iran. On Saturday evening, thousands of people across the country called those responsible to account for the shooting down of the Ukrainian International Airlines plane, which killed 176 people. The passenger plane had crashed last Wednesday over Iran. After initial denials, Iranian government officials admitted on Saturday that Iranian security forces had accidentally downed the plane.

Yesterday, Sunday, numerous people also took to the streets in Tehran against the regime. There were also protests at universities in other cities.
