[Ed. – Even Fox is depicting this as a response to U.S. sanctions. But that’s absurd, since sanctions kicked back in a mere 20 hours ago. The Iranians are protesting what they’re yelling about: the radical Islamic regime of the mullahs. That’s what they’ve been protesting since December. They’re not shouting against Trump — in fact, the ones who can get a message out on Twitter are thanking Trump and asking him for help.]
Videos circulating on social media purportedly taken from inside Iran show thousands of protesters marching through the streets. In one video, crowds leaving a soccer match are heard yelling “death to the dictator! Death to Khamenei! Death to Rouhani!” and “Islamic regime must get lost!” according to a translation tweeted by a Middle East analyst.
Another video said to be taken in Tehran shows idle buses lined up as far as the eye can see, with the same analyst reporting Iran’s government has refused to pay back its debts to a contractor that gives the drivers fuel, leaving them – and the thousands of Iranians they would have been transporting – stranded.
