Iran: report on popular, labor and student protests in various cities [photos]



On Saturday, July 4th a group of families residing around a square known as the ‘Sepah Square’ in eastern Tehran, along with a group of store owners, staged a rally protesting the illegal constructions projects carried out by the regime’s agents and Revolutionary Guards members. The protesters said they are threatened because the high cranes used in these constructions sites follow no serious safety regulations and they are always on the verge of crumbling down.
The threat of these cranes, and their loads, falling on the locals seriously endangers their lives, the locals say. The regime’s repressive state security forces were seen attempting to disperse the protesting crowd. However, their measures were all futile.
