Further Gasps Of Reform Protests In Iran

Thousands gathered in the streets of Iranian cities to remember the storming of the American Embassy thirty years ago. Even as cries of “death to America” were heard, reform supporters chanted their own slogans of “down with the dictator, Ahmadinejad.” Protestors knew they would be beaten by the Revolutionary Guard or have tear gas thrown in their direction, but they walked down the streets filled with anger at the clerics who control their nation and deny individuals the right to express their views. in response, militia groups and the Guard stormed into the crowd swinging batons and using force to quell voices of peace and love of country.

In the end, dozens more people were headed to jail, reform leaders were being beaten and some carried off to prison, but the struggle continues and continues.
