Iran protests show danger of economic woes

Iran protests show danger of economic woes

The protests that erupted late December 2017 in Iran are believed to be mainly triggered by the economic reform austerity measures that led to high inflation rates and price hikes in some basic food commodities, amid a high unemployment rate that reached 12.4 percent in 2017, according to the country's official statistics. He further stated that the government is mismanaged and that it was not from a lack of economic sources.

The meeting between Zarif and the three European parties to the landmark 2015 agreement comes after Iran warned the world today to prepare for the withdrawal of the United States. "I think it's very important that we stand up and say that we understand the Iranian people".

Numerous protesters questioned Iran's foreign policy in the Middle East, where it has intervened in Syria and Iraq in a battle for influence with rival Saudi Arabia.

Chanting in unison in Farsi and English, the protesters referred to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and a Shiite militant group as they waved signs and flags and shouted, "Death to Khamenei!"

He will make the decision as Iran's government deals with protests over economic hardships and corruption.

Around 3700 protesters were arrested during the unrest that spread across Iran for more than a week, parliament lawmakers have confirmed today. He also will face deadlines as early as January 12 to decide whether to continue temporary waivers of US sanctions on Iran, which must be put for consideration for renewal every 120 days, Politico has reported.

On Sunday, Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said 70 of the detained protesters had been released on bail in the previous 48 hours.

Human rights activists outside of Iran told The Associated Press they weren't surprised by the figure as authorities also allegedly carried out so-called "preventative arrests" of students not involved in the protests. Furthermore, there are reports that the Iranian Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, as part of the Iranian government crackdown on the demonstrators, were found to be asking viewers to surrender the identities of those demonstrators. "Within a week, protests were held spontaneously in 82 cities across Iran".

"The Trump Administration is deeply concerned by reports that the Iranian regime has imprisoned thousands of?Iranian citizens in the past week for engaging in peaceful protests".

Abul-Nour added that the support gives an excuse to the Iranian regime to accuse the protesters of being agents and traitors.

"The Iranian people see no value in the opportunistic remarks by American officials and Mr Trump", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said at the time in response to the United States administrations remarks.

It's hard to tell right now who emerged stronger after the protests - Rouhani or his hard-line opponents.

Today, the Iranian people are once again rising up to demand freedom and opportunity, and under President Donald Trump, the United States is standing with them.

In 2009, Americans watched the people of Iran rise up to claim their birthright of freedom.

"On the one hand it has succeeded in preventing these protests getting out of hand and contained them to a great extend and they did not achieve critical mass in terms of numbers", Randjbar-Daemi said.

Will we urge the Iranians to rise up and overthrow their regime, as we did the Hungarians in 1956, which resulted in their massacre by Soviet tanks sent into Budapest?
