Blowback? U.S. Assassination of Soleimani May Weaken Growing Protest Movement in Iran
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-01-08
Protests broke out in Iran in November in response to high fuel prices, leading to demonstrations in dozens of cities around the country. The protesters have demanded economic relief and denounced corruption. More than 1,000 people have been killed since the outbreak of the protests and a violent crackdown by security forces.
