Iranians march in pro-regime rallies

Iranians march in pro-regime rallies

But above all y fear an escalation of violence, especially if hardest sectors of regime, with guardians of revolution at head, decide to take under ir control repression to give a exemplary response to challenge to system that They imply protests.

Anti-government demonstrations flared in several cities Wednesday, videos posted on social media seemed to show. In keeping with that approach, the European Union urged Tehran in a statement late Tuesday to recognize Iranians' right to peaceful protest and to resolve the issues without resorting to violence.

Among the slickly produced signs carried at the pro-government rallies were ones targeting Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has blamed the protests on meddling by "enemies of Iran".

"This person allegedly "'led rioters' in the town of Borujerd", according to Hamid Reza Bolhassani, a judicial official in Lorestan.

Authorities in Tehran have responded to Trump's tweets, blasting the USA president for interfering in Iran's internal affairs. Turkish officials on Wednesday said Iran's President Hassan Rouhani told his Turkish counterpart during a phone call that he hopes the protests "will end in a couple of days".

In this context, Donald Trump's response, whippinging protesters against regime, is a major mistake that can backfire because it weakens president Rohaní and moderate sectors. And even less so by Iranians, who have included in ir migratory veto, closing or hindering ir chances of traveling to US.

"The people of Iran are crying out for freedom", she said at a news conference.

Even reformists in Iran, who backed the 2009 protests, have condemned the violence and the support the demonstrations have received from the United States.

Resentment over economic stagnation and alleged graft within the clerical and security hierarchies sparked the protests after Iranians took to social media to vent their outrage.

The protests have surprised Iran's establishment, which has been slow to respond.

"Under the "#I am regretful" hashtag, they expressed disappointment with Rouhani, who was elected on promises of tackling high unemployment and granting more social freedoms. It has allocated, as usual, billions of dollars to religious universities and institutions while the government said it did not have enough cash to help the unemployed, including 28.8 percent of youth who are jobless.

But there have been few changes.

While more than 20 million out of 80 million Iranians live below the poverty line, the wealthy, including relatives of government officials, import tens of thousands of luxury cars every year, causing widespread resentment.

"In recent days, enemies of Iran used different tools, including cash, weapons, politics and intelligence apparatus to create troubles for the Islamic Republic".

The demonstrations have evolved into rare political rallies that call for the overthrow of all Iranian leaders.

It remains hard for journalists to piece together what's happening beyond the capital, especially as the government has blocked both the photo-sharing app Instagram and the messaging app Telegram, which protesters have used to organize their demonstrations and share footage.
